TIME ON MY HANDS: A Novel with Photographs by Peter Delacorte

How big is a talent? What are the Ten Commandments for the Road (as defined by the Christian Road Safety Association)? Who is the patron saint of the ugly? What is The Adulterers Bible? The answers to these questions and dozens of others, both amusing and serious, can be found in SUMMONS CHRISTIAN MISCELLANY. Parminder Summon, a practicing Christian and an avid collector of trivia and curiosities, takes a lighthearted journey through Christian history and culture and discloses the funny, obscure, and sometimes bizarre things they never teach in Sunday school, including: Unusual patron saints, including the guardians of serial killers, the ugly, and those accused of cannibalism A history of Christian snake handlers Strange versions of the Bible Minibiographies of Christian Nobel Prize winners Lists of Biblical weights and measures Translations of the Lords Prayer into sixteen different languages The Catholic prayer of exorcism Quotations from Woody Allen and other unlikely commentators Summons own hilarious fifty-word summary of the Bible Suggested theme songs for Biblical figures, featuring such apt tunes as The Lion Sleeps Tonight for Daniel, and Ive Got a Right to Sing the Blues for Job Like the bestselling Schotts Original Miscellany, SUMMONS CHRISTIAN MISCELLANY is at once an addictive diversion and a fascinating compilation of intriguing, little-known facts.
