The critics are raving about Ryan Dobson's Be Intolerant Because Some Things Are Just Stupid!

"(Be Intolerant) is a statement that desperately needs to be proclaimed in our postmodern world in this day and age. Ryan Dobson shows just how hard the Truth is, and why each individual must embrace it nonetheless in order to live an authentic life. It reveals the major flaws of moral relativism and points to absolute truth as being the system we must embrace if we are to be free from sin and life for God in the world. I highly recommend this book to both Christians and non-Christians alike."

"While his writing might seen bigoted and pathetic to some, to others it might be exactly what they need to spur them on. Ryan does give an honest look at how true intolerance crafted through love is the correct method some times. It's an easy read and not real in depth, but sometimes that's a good thing!"

"As Dobson says in this book, Moral Relativism in part means that you tolerate everything. Well, that shows up when you write an English paper in college. And earns you a C. Trust me - I've been there. Manic tolerance means you don't have an opinion. If you were truly relativest you couldn't even walk around or function."

The critics are similarly raving about Ryan Dobson's 2 Die 4: The Dangerous Truth About Following Christ!

"In a colloquial style with all the subtlety of a two-by-four to the side of the head, Dobson, a surfer, skateboarder and motivational speaker...trumpets Christianity as the ultimate adrenaline rush. 'You and I were born for excitement and adventure...Anything else leaves us bored.' The book targets a young audience with its references to life in a rock band, The Lord of the Rings, professional wrestling and its central metaphor, skydiving. It offers writing for people who don't like to read: short sentences, sentence fragments and plenty of exclamation points. With its ragged and rugged portrait of the Christian as the world's true rebel, this brief, conspicuous book may draw teens and 20-somethings who are tired of boring religion."

"This is a good quick read...which, is great. Especially when trying to reach those in younger generations."

OSSUM

(ETA: I love this Amazon list, entitled "an essential college library". In addition to the standard dictionaries, thesauri, manuals of style, and study guides, and a bunch of Christian books including 2 Die 4 dealing with how to stay Christian in college, there's also...Milton Berle's Private Joke File. Now imagine you are this kid's roomate at the U of Texas, and he spends half his time haranguing you with "answers for skeptics" and lamebrained repetitions of CS Lewis and GK Chesterton apologia, and the rest of his time telling you Fozzie Bear jokes. How long before you transfer to the nearest DeVry?)
