Books and Religion

Perhaps it is because I am not a Christian that the increase in Christian books and publishing frightens me. Or perhaps it is people who say things like this in the NY Times:

"Something really big is happening, but it has been happening under the radar of the national media. They've missed it entirely,'' Rick Warren said in an e-mail message. Warren, a minister based in Lake Forest, Calif., and the author of ''The Purpose Driven Life,'' continued: ''Since I'm in weekly touch with the 138,000 pastors in our network, I hear the stories. We are at the beginning of a New Reformation in the Christian church. That will inevitably affect everyone else.''
