Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Shelf of Shame # 19


Re-Entry. John Wesley White. Zondervan Publishing: Michigan: 1971. Mass Market Paperback, illus. card covers, 192 pp.

Seriously? I really do find it hard to believe that nowhere along the way to publishing this book did anybody notice the unfortunate combination of title and sub-title.

If the titular joke isn't enough (and by gosh, don't you think it should be?) then the chapter titles will, erm, drive the joke home. You know what I mean.

Theology & the Coming Christ
Science and Technology & the Coming Christ
The Church & the Coming Christ
Society & the Coming Christ
Philosophy & the Coming Christ
Politics & the Coming Christ
Preparation for His Coming

As an unfortunate segue, Zondervan Publishing has recently issued a book called "Sticky Faith". Ew.

... and the Reverend Ron Jeremy says "Amen".

For Further Research:
Much ado about Zondervan Publishing and more.
There is so much on The Second Coming, but THIS ONE seemed most entertaining.
The original joke from Moonraker, for better or for worse.
