When I saw the title of the article, I was assuming he would mention the many heaven and back books. This comment...

"Did you know that one of these best-selling authors has completely revoked his story? The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven had sold more than a million copies before that boy admitted, he didn’t really come back from heaven at all. He had never been there. In fact, he and his father had fabricated the entire story."

...caught my eye because the facts are even worse. It was known that the story was revoked by the authors LONG before the book was pulled from the shelves of Chri$tian Book$tore$.

....I could limit my list to just five books.  I remember a time when I looked through some of the books my wife and I had gotten over the years, and I got rid of at least a dozen of them because they were so bad.  There is something to be said for stocking one's bookshelves with references written by guys who are NOT anticipating making their first million from the royalties.  Not fool-proof, but it helps.

As an aside - why would anyone think to name a popcorn brand poppycock?!

Perhaps "Cockypop" was already taken?  (Slinks toward the exit....)
