Religion and spirituality in the shadow of Pikes Peak

And the winner is ...

They say people don't read anymore. They all must be too busy writing to bother.

I receive dozens of faith-oriented books every month, it seems. Some are fascinating, some are middlin' and some are just plain wacky.

Late last week, I received a self-published missive titled "The Messiah," which calls President George W. Bush "The Chosen One."

The last page of the book -- shortly after author William Smatt makes a plug for a Florida park -- contains the following:

"This book is of divine inspiration and not for financial gain. I was instructed that someone needed to standup (sic) for the President and inform the public of the good the Messiah has done. .... GET OFF THE MESSIAH'S BACK!"
