Description

What Would Jesus Craft? is a hilarious take on a Sunday school's craft book, featuring 30 simple projects that are all made from commonly found items like popsicle sticks, glitter, yarn, and pipe cleaners.
Projects include items for your home, pets, and family and author Ross MacDonald provides clear step-by-step photographs. Now you can finally complete your wardrobe with a "Fedora of Thorns" and "Jesus Jean Jacket" with Christ Almighty emblazoned on your back; your pets will be blessed and protected when they sport a "Be Not Afraid St. Francis Pet Collar" dripping with St. Francis charms and a crucifix; and the light of the Lord will bless every inch of your home with "Let There Be Light Switches," an "Eye-See-You-in-Hell Mirror," a "Time to Obey the Lord Clock," and much, much more!

        February 1, 2016

        Reverence meets irreverence in this collection of Jesus-themed craft projects, which combine popular culture, religious kitsch, and hot glue. The projects are organized by theme, including clothing and accessories, home decor, food and drink, and Christmas, and most require basic crafting skills and supplies. MacDonald's sense of humor shines with projects that poke fun at the clash between popular culture and religion, such as the "War-on-Christmas Action Figures" and the "Jesus' Pet Dinosaur Nacho Platter" (featuring--yes--Jesus riding a dinosaur). While there are several projects in the collection that Christians could get behind, a few, such as the "Fedora of Thorns" and the "Jesus Loves Me Jeans" (featuring religious artwork on the seat and a leather patch reading "Jesus Loves My Ass") may offend the devout. VERDICT Crafting humor is increasingly trendy, and though the easy comparison is to Amy Sedaris, MacDonald's incisive humor puts him in the same wheelhouse as Penn Jillette and other comedians who poke fun at religion.
