Why can’t Christian publishers get a clue?
Recently, I received my copy of the Zondervan catalog. In one of the circulars, there was an advertisement for a book called Deadly Viper Character Assassins: A Kung Fu Survival Guide for Life and Leadership.
So the “Kung Fu” part got my attention, as well as the dragon on the cover and the Chinese characters. I guess I was hoping against hope that it was the story of an Asian-American Christian rather than another example of Asian culture being pimped out to sell products.
More to be said, but here are some choice samplings of their work:

I’m trying to engage in dialogue with the authors. Not a good response so far, but if given the chance what would you say to them?
