    1 thought on “The Mantra of Jabez: Break on Through to the Other Side”

    1. I heard the author of the original work, herein parodied, and his appeals although for a good cause drove me bonkers. So I came home, and read this through. The word 'catharsis' comes to mind. As the Greeks would say, kudos to Doug Jones to making something really silly into something worth a few minutes of the day.

    2. A great, albeit snarky, parody of The Prayer of Jabez which highlights the superficiality and even Gnosticism of that book with correctives contained within the satire.

    3. Probably would have enjoyed this more if I hadn't read the real version first and thought that it was okay.Chapter 1: Little Mantra, Giant Score10: key is that Jabez was more honorable than his brothers11: it takes time to cultivate honorChapter 2: So Why Not Twist It?20: are God's blessings always immaterial?21: is the afterlife about you, or about "extending the kingdom throughout the earth and glorifying God"?Chapter 3: Living Extra Large for God24: the text is about actual territory, not spi [...]

    4. Hilarity (parody) abounds! My favorite chapter is "Touched by Immaturity." While laugh out loud at times, Jones creatively teaches us, yes satirically and without mercy, but effectively raising issues we want to teach in the church. Do you want to be a kipper for God?
