A Serrated Edge: A Brief Defense of Biblical Satire and Trinitarian Skylarking by Douglas Wilson

When is it okay for a Christian to purposely be sarcastic, critical, and offensive?

Jesus said some pretty harsh things to the Pharisees, in a tone of deliberate offensiveness and sarcasm. If a Christian used the same tactics as Jesus did in today’s world, when attacking enemies, there would be a lot of finger waving and “Now now, you’re not acting very Christ like” and “We don’t want your critical spirit”.

This is a humorous yet serious book addressing Biblical sarcasm, and when to be Biblically sarcastic.

A fun read.
