Ready to roll in piles of ironically spent money, some industrious entrepreneur has begun selling the Book of Yeezus.
Sure. Why not.
Here's this thing
These hip booksellers want to give the world what it apparently wants:
"If the Bible, the most singularly significant publication in the ancient canon of western tradition, were updated to reflect our modern society, what would it look like?
The Book of Yeezus is an interventionist art, coffee-table novelty, that will appeal to Kanye fans everywhere and those made curious by this enormous cultural phenomenon."
It's the Book of Genesis that you know and love...
So, presumably, this will have all 50 chapters and 1,533 verses from the book of Genesis?
That's a lot of ground to cover. Everything from the creation of the universe to Joseph and his amazing technicolor dreamcoat. Lots of room for Kanye to stir up some trouble.
This is not to be confused with the new Terminator movie.
This could be you!
And don't forget about that 300-word foreword!
Here's how they introduce the introduction:
"The Book of Yeezus is a creative vision, bound in a gold leaf-etched, illustrated, black leather book that details the story of Genesis–for the new age. In its foreword, we explore our culture's state of religiosity and its capacity for wonder. How does spirituality, an evolutionary reflex, manifest in a digitized world? Why does Kanye West take such outsized significance in the lives of many?"
How many do you think he bought?
