Description
Theological essays are dusty, humourless affairs aren't they? Well, they don't have to be! This is the second collection of essays by Carl Trueman. His first collection was received with the enthusiasm. This time Chick Lit, Adolf Eichman, the i-pod, Francis J. Beckwith, the Blues, Watership Down, American Idol, Nietzsche, zen-calvinism, Augustine and ferrets(!) all get a mention.

If you want to inform your mind and chuckle at the same time - Carl's your man!
