In the Mail

The mailman just dropped off my review copy of the pseudonymous Sevetus the Evangelical’s book The Restitution of Jesus Christ.  I have to say that it’s not quite like anything I’ve received to date.  It’s spiral bound and apparently the contents are the book’s galleys.  Here’s a few pics to show you what I’m talking about:




The layout is going to make the book somewhat more difficult to read comfortably (like laying in bed or something) but I’ll survive.

  1. TC: I always hated when I had to pay for those spiral bound books in seminary. I felt I was jipped out of a real book!

  2. Jason: That’s kind of how I feel with this one! I’m glad I didn’t pay $30 for it!

    Jake: It’ll be tough but I’m sure I’ll magae. I’ll just have to read at my desk.

  3. Whoa. Not sure I like that. Had a couple similar to the layout in undergrad work, but those weren’t sideways like this.

  4. Matt: Yeah, it’s the sideays thing that’s bugging me the most. It’s a book, not a calendar!

  5. Jason, remember your days are not over in seminary just yet. You might still have to pay. :-D

    Nick, I paid a few $20 here and there. They never seemed to cost more.

  6. Nick: Have you read any of it yet? Do you feel the burden of heresy just holding it?

    TC: You’re right. Boy, I hope that post-grad work yields at least properly bound books!

  7. TC: Yeah, if you had to get them then you had to. WTS sells some stuff like that but it’s always pretty cheap. Like $10 and under.

    Jason: I haven’t gotten into it yet. It’s not a priority at the moment. But I think it was Walter Martin who said, “I like my heretics straight up.” I’m just glad that this guy is up front about being a heretic, although I’m sure he thinks he’s just ‘right.’

  8. Jason, I have a feeling it’s gonna be the same.

    Nick, I always knew I was being ripped off. I’m serious. They would tell us that it cost them to put the stuff together.

  9. Nick: I guess it would be less frustrating to read someone who is at least forward in stating their beliefs run contrary to the mainstream.

    TC: My intro Greek prof in seminary required for class his soon-to-be-published text on Greek grammar. It was a proof copy, so it was spiral bound. The upside was he didn’t charge us for it and would pay us $1 for every typo!

  10. TC: Yes, several actually. However, I never managed to remember to tell my prof–I could’ve made enough to buy a few cappuccinos!

  11. TC: It does cost them, but not no $20!

    Jason: Not really. It’s still pretty frustrating. This guy claims to have written the best book ever on the subject so that’ll probably add to my annoyance, but we’ll see.

    Marcy: That’s who he’s named himself after, yup.
