Hey there, remember those end-times scare movies we all had to watch at Church Camp in the 80s – the ones with planes leaving without us, guillotines, microchips, and little piles of post-rapture clothing with glasses on top? I do.
Remember all 166 volumes of the “Left Behind” book series in the 90s, which sold about 1.8 trillion copies?
I was a part of a committee that wrote a satire about both phenomena. The book is called “Beauty and the Mark of the Beast” and it’s a “Dispensensational End-Times Thriller.” It includes the following:
- A larger-than-life evangelical superstar quarterback who is so large that he’s on TV all the time and influences all of evangelicalism (that would never happen in real life).
- A huge multi-national defense contractor
- Bad religious television programming
- Professional Football teams with names based on attributes of their cities (ex: The Seattle Hipsters, the Denver Values, the Arizona Dry Heat)
All that to say, it has everything the Left Behind books had, and a few things they didn’t, namely, intentional humor.
Also, our book is only $2.99. Buy it. Read it. Laugh at it.
