Letter From The Disneyland Jail (PDF)
Reflecting on the Christmas arrest at Disneyland's Main Street USA Parade.


Reverend Billy's revival tour across America is the companion to the holiday indie-doc hit produced by Morgan Spurlock - What Would Jesus Buy? The book is an inspiring—love-a-lujah!—compendium of the Reverend in full flow, from his exhortations from the pulpit to his reflections on why lesbian marriage will save the Spotted Owl. We include confessions from the congregation a host of activities for aspiring and accomplished stop-shoppers around the world.

Reverend Billy first began preaching in Times Square and has since been incessantly spreading the word at major retail stores from San Francisco to New York City. He has been regularly featured in the national media, most recently in the New York Times, and was arrested with great panache as he led prayers against consumerism in Disneyland. What Would Jesus Buy? will entertain, convince, convert, and give readers actions they can take to become a member of the Church of Stop Shopping.
