Description

This collection brings together some of the columns written by Reed M. N. Weep and published beginning in 1997 to his disappearance in 2011 in the Bulletin for the Study of Religion and its precursor, the Bulletin of the Council of Societies for the Study of Religion. The columns satirize the academic discipline of religious studies, contemporary university life, and popular culture. There is little here that rises to the level of Truth (with a capital T). Instead the emphasis is on humor, trutH (with a capital H). The book includes introductions by Russell McCutcheon, Craig Prentiss, Scott Elliott, Craig Martin, and Weep’s student, Alumno Sinllanto.
