Dead Book Society: Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices

It’s the monthly review of a great book for youth workers by a Christian who’s deader than C.S. Lewis. “Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices”:http://www.premieryouthwork.com/Read/Youthwork-Blog/Dead-Book-Society-Precious-Remedies-Against-Satan-s-Devices is great, you should read that review, then read it. Or just read the book. It’s better than the review.

I do have one caveat to add to that review, the “where can you get this from footnote” states:

Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks is published by Banner of Truth in their Puritan Paperback series. (You can get it in other places, but if you buy it in this series, and buy some other ones, then all the book spines will line up beautifully on your bookcase.)

This is nearly entirely accurate. The spines are mostly a beautiful thing. BUT… They don’t entirely line-up. In fact, very annoyingly they’re all slightly out from each other. If they were all consistently different, it would probably be less annoying. But instead, they’re all just a little bit wrong. See below:

See! The tops don’t even line up sometimes.
