- Preface -- Let the games begin -- Welcome to the dollhouse -- Holy commerce, Batman! -- Are we having fun yet? -- Ritualizing playfulness -- Conclusion: Game over.
- "Written with verve and a healthy dollop of humor, Toying with God examines the sometimes zany world of religious games and dolls, from pre-history to today. Packed with examples that add immeasurably to readers' knowledge of religious trivia, this entertaining romp is an insightful reflection upon one of the more curious intersections of popular culture and spirituality. Have we humans blended fun with spirituality for good or for ill? And what does all of this say about our insatiable need for entertainment?"--BOOK JACKET.
