Publisher's Summary

At first, Lanny Hooch thinks the sign at the gas station is a practical joke: "Unleaded $0.12 per gallon for the Redeemed: $6.66 for everyone else". At McDonald's, he notices crosses on the employees' lapels, and french fries, renamed McScriptures, embossed with Bible verses. And he wonders why everyone calls him "Mr. P". But when he detects changed lyrics in the oldies tunes blaring from his car radio, he realizes something is seriously wrong. The Beatles never sang about wanting to hold someone's tithe! And then there's the huge reward for his capture and conversion.


What the Critics Say

"The wide-ranging satire is a breath of fresh air, poking fun at smug evangelicals as well as the bizarre ideas 'unbelievers' entertain about them." (Booklist)

Another fun story!

I like how this book has a lot of underlying meanings! There were many times during the book where suddenly the meaning of what was being said became more complex. It was fun to see the story unfold in that way!

Cheese, with church buddies.

If you're looking for a drawn out Christian conversion story written from an only-slightly-past-adolescent redneck point of view, then this is your book. The plot is beyond silly. The author also seems to think naming the brand name of everything the characters touch adds 'local color.' It doesn't. Even the 8th time. Character's motivations are entirely one dimensional and unrealistic. The entire book is like a bad after school special. Not recommended for anyone with a functioning brain.
