    Talk about truth in advertising.

    Well, yes. Anne Rice converted to Christianity and she wrote a fictional book about Jesus Christ as a child.

    Do Christians believe in vampires?

    Humorous, but no one ever claimed that Anne Rice’s “Christ the Lord” novel was anything but fiction.

    (Actually, it pissed a lot of religious people off.)

    That almost looks like someone altered the book display before you got there. Did you ask the clerks about it?

    Does the photographer, or even you, Hemant, know that the book is indeed a work of fiction?

    Not my picture. I don’t believe it was altered, though. And I assume the photographer knew the book was fictional.

    To me, the justaposition of the Fiction banner and the book’s title was the funny part :)

    I love how people convert to Christianity after they’ve made millions of dollars doing stuff of which Christians don’t approve, such as writing about the occult. Jesus, if I become a Christian, can I have that much money? What’s it worth to you, Lord?

    I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday and someone had put L.Ron Hubbard’s ‘Dianetics’ on the top-shelf, by itself of the Science Fiction section… I laughed when I saw it and took a picture with my phone.

    Sometimes I think about having some fun like this- moving the books around- but I think I get distracted by- LOOK AT THE SHINY BOOKS! Yay!
