From the Back Cover:
Written by the Lord of Evil Himself, Hunson Abadeer (a.k.a. Marceline the Vampire Queens dad), to instruct and confound the demonic citizenry of the Nightosphere, The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia is perhaps the most dangerous book in history. Although seemingly a guidebook to the Land of Ooo and its postapocalyptic inhabitants, it is in fact an amusing nightmare of literary pitfalls, bombastic brain-boggles, and ancient texts designed to drive the reader mad.
Complete with secret lore and wizard spells, fun places you should visit and places where you will probably die, advice on whom to marry and whom not to marry, and how to make friends and destroy your enemies, this volume includes hand-written marginalia by Finn, Jake, and Marceline.
Arguably the greatest encyclopaedia ever written since the beginning of the cosmos, it is also an indispensable companion to humans and demons who know what time it is: Adventure Time!
Quotes from The Lies We Believe About God, by Paul Young
T he Shack has sold twenty million copies and along the way generated at least twenty million conversations. Many of these have been attempts to discern the fact behind the fiction, to interpret what Paul Young means to teach through his story. Some have read the novel as a fresh expression of Christian orthodoxy while others have read it as rank heresy. In the end, only Young knows what he really believes. In this book he tells what he believes about sin, religion, hell, substitution, submission, salvation, and a number of other issues that cut to the very heart of the Christian faith. Instead, I have chosen to focus on the few that are most central to the Christian faith. As much as possible, I allow Young to speak in his own words.
They taught her — and me — to work hard, do your best, love your mother, save money. And while I am actually really grateful for these values and how they were modeled and taught to me, they were more of the best of American post-war culture than anything that was particularly born out of faith, or any connection to God. Which for me was a good and a bad thing. The most common religious phrase I remember him saying to me as a kid was a weird blessing he would say to me sometimes at bed time or other odd moments now and then. This was awkward. That was weird. The home I was raised in was nothing if not critical and defensive.

Newsboys - We Believe (Official Music Video)
Of all the subjects in the world, the most misunderstood, perhaps, is God. We impress upon God our own human ambitions and ignorance, often making Him out to be something very different from the deity scripture actually describes. When Christians do this, when they believe lies about God, they cannot present Him accurately to the rest of the world. Instead, the world gets a muddied image of God that repels them. And just as badly, Christians, themselves, suffer for these misbeliefs.
Jump to navigation. I Use them in my book review. I present these quotes here so that others can more fully see, with documentation, what Paul Young teaches. The underlines are my emphasis. Being around him was like walking through a minefield , with the explosive devices changing positions every night while I slept.
