"Rev and his choir now enrapture large audiences, sometimes including me, with sermons such as those in this collection, and ones to which, I dare say, Jesus Himself would have said, ‘Amen.'"
--Kurt Vonnegut

"Jesus would buy this book, wave his hand, turn it into a best-seller, and say ‘Thank you, Me!' for sending the world Reverend Billy!"
--Morgan Spurlock

"Elmer Gantry crossed with Lord Buckley. The Right Reverend Billy and his holy entourage sing out and street jam and heckle us out of our obscene over-consumption."
--Joan Baez
