That was years ago, and I hadn't thought of that book in quite a while. Then earlier this week I received an order from Christian Book Distributors, and of course they threw in their catalog, along with a CBD Express! sales flyer containing deals too good to pass up, valid through the end of March. One of the items on the page caught my eye. It was a book with the logo for the TV show 24 on the front. I thought, "What in the world is that?" Well, folks, there is now a Bible study available based on 24. The little advertising blurb for the book says
"Glean spiritual insights from the hit TV show 24! In this creative guide (it's creative, all right), [the author] reviews each episode of season one to reveal an unexpected (really?) and challenging faith truth . . ."(Emphases and parenthetical comments mine)
Ok. I've seen 24. Spiritual it ain't. At all. Entertaining? Yes. But spiritual? No. In fact, I think you have to dig quite deep to find anything spiritual about it, so deep that you're really stretching things pretty thin - say, into non-existence? I think I'll pass on the 24 Bible study and reach for . . . say . . . my Bible???
