A Contrarian's Daydream
Written by Douglas Wilson
Readers of PG Wodehouse's Leave It to Psmith and Christopher Buckley's Thank You for Smoking will appreciate this lighthearted new satirical novel from the award-winning author of Evangellyfish (Best Fiction of 2012, Christianity Today).
Tom Collins, mild-mannered president of a dwindling southern Bible college, becomes a target when a drunk prankster swaps his campus's American flag with the Christian one, and Dr. Tom refuses to "fix" the situation. Big media, exuberant students, petty enemies, and pretty secretaries all play a part in this happy-go-lucky satire for the twenty-first century.
"Well, this is it. Caesar had his Rubicon. What do Bible college presidents have? A Rubik's Cube?" ~ Flags Out Front: A Contrarian's Daydream
"Why does reading Doug Wilson sometimes feels like a guilty pleasure? Well, I read his new novel last Saturday, and it was a jolly read." -Andy Naselli, The Gospel Coalition
"... an amusing novel with a P.G. Wodehouse flair that will delight those depressed by the sight of Christians perpetually playing defense."" Marvin Olasky, World magazine
"In the midst of Republicans and Christians retreating in the face of relativist attacks on God, Doug Wilson shows us the path to success with principled opposition to the left in the culture wars today. And he does it with great style and humor.... a must read for anyone tired of watching the left advance practically unopposed by America's political and religious establishment." - Books and Culture
" Flags out Front is a funny, clever, political feel-good novel that most anyone would enjoy, particularly if you want to be inspired as to how Christians can do politics differently. I've foisted this off on a number of friends and family (and read about half of it out loud to my wife) and the response has been enthused all around." - Jon Dykstra, Reformed Perspective
