Consumerism – Babies and Bibles

Yesterday I wrote about my first visit to Babies”R”us.  I was amazed at the way you can slap a baby reference on anything and guilt new parents into thinking that they need something as crazy as nursery water. 

Last night I went to a Christian outlet store for a few minutes and I was reminded of another B word that you can slap onto anything to sell copies when I saw this:

Notice anything wrong with this picture?  I’ve seen a lot of special Bible books (Bible trivia, Bible jokes, Bible activities, etc), but what exactly is the process that you go through to turn a regular Sudoku book into Bible Sudoku?  Does that just mean you have lots of 7s and a few 666 combinations?  Whatever they did, they must have sold a lot since this is Volume 2 of Fun Bible Sudoku.
