Publisher's Summary

Satire is a kind of preaching. Satire pervades Scripture. Satire treats the foibles of sinners with a less than perfect tenderness. But if a Christian employs satire today, he is almost immediately called to account for his "insensitive" and "unloving" behavior. Yet Scripture shows that the central point of some religious controversies is to give offense. When Christ was confronted with ecclesiastical obstinacy and other forms of arrogance, He showed us a godly pattern for giving offense.  

In every controversy godliness and wisdom (or the lack of them) are to be determined by careful appeal to the Scriptures and not the fact of people having taken offense. 

In this audiobook, veteran satirist Douglas Wilson explains his rationale for why so much of what he says gets people upset and yet he continues to speak as he does, for the sake of the gospel.

Awesome.

Great book, great exposition of Scripture. We need more men to stand on the Word of God and speak out against the skubalon that the world spews out.

Godly sarcasm Jesus style

A wonderful treatment of the right and godly use of sarcasm.
Just because you have only seen the wrong Way to use sarcasm, doesn’t mean that it can’t be used rightly.
Highly recommend for all those who cant help but laugh at the ridiculousness of modern Christianity.
