    They also sound like all those cheesy self help books on the market.

    If the cure for baldness had been on a Christian book it would have been priceless…

    The only one that really makes any sense is having “Keep Yourself Happy” on a Christian book… At least there seems to have been some internal consistency there.

    I got 11/14 right, and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t just good luck. There are a few common giveaways; e.g., a Christian book wouldn’t be likely to talk about “*your* perfect life”, or stress “success” and “fulfilment”, etc. I think the differences are mostly to the credit of the Christian books, though everything in the list makes me want to run away screaming.

    g: As long as Joel Osteen is still writing books, they will always be about achieving success in your perfect life of fulfillment. I was just at the book store and saw his smiling face on the book cover. That man gives me the willies.
