Borrowing a line from the movie War Games, "Would you like to play a game?" Since the forums are full of bibliophiles, I thought this might be fun here.

This started on Twitter a  couple years back, and can get pretty funny. Simply add a single word to the title of a Christian book and see what happens. Examples: Surprised by Joy, by C. S. Lewis, becomes Surprised by Joy Behar. Then there's,

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Malfunction

Stop Dating the Church Secretary

and,

Chicken Soup Nazi for the Soul.

(HT: CT)

My own best attempt so far: Salvation by Faith Statements Alone, by R. C. Sproul.

Have fun.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.
