(Which wasn't very good, IMO. It's not a bad book, but it's full of things that I found so blatantly obvious that I didn't think it was worth the paper and ink.) And I realize that Sally endorsed the text of the book, before it was even published, and likely had no idea that there was going to be a list of recommended books at the end. Still, I'm sad that others will buy the book because of it.

Oh, that stinks. Kristen Welch and I share an agent, and I think her Mercy House organization does amazing work, and does it the right way in countries it serves. She is Southern Baptist, though, and the spanking culture is so strong there, especially in the South and in Texas.
