Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reverend Billy's revival tour across America is the subject of the upcoming Morgan Spurlock film What Would Jesus Buy?, his first movie since the national hit Super Size Me! The book is an inspiring—love-a-lujah!—compendium of the reverend in full flow, from his exhortations from the pulpit to his reflections on why lesbian marriage will save the Spotted Owl. Reverend Billy believes big box brainless consumerism is destroying our culture and our planet.

Reverend Billy first began preaching in Times Square and has since been incessantly spreading the word at major retail stores from San Francisco to New York City. He has been regularly featured in the national media, most recently in the New York Times, and was arrested with great panache as he led prayers against consumerism in Disneyland. What Would Jesus Buy? will entertain, convince, convert, and give readers actions they can take to become a member of the Church of Stop Shopping.

Review:

"We're all shopping sinners woefully in need of deliverance, says Rev. Billy (a.k.a. actor and activist Bill Talen). His What Would Jesus Buy: Fabulous Prayers in the Face of the Shopocalypse contains sermons and exhortations to stop shop ping and start believing, as well as prayers and ideas for action — all delivered with creative gusto and multiple exclamation points." Sojourners Magazine, June 1, 2007

Synopsis:

The companion book to What Would Jesus Buy?, the forthcoming feature-length documentary produced by Morgan Spurlock, creator of Super Size Me!

Synopsis:

The Church of Stop Shopping was founded by Talen to protest the modern culture of commercialization and consumption. This short and powerful book is designed to entertain, to convince the skeptical, and inspire the converted.
