An Irreverent Curiosity: In Search of the Church's Strangest Relic in Italy's OddestTown - David Farley An enjoyable romp in the world of religious relics and strange religious scandals. I now know way more than I want about foreskins and circumcision. Yet what really makes this book stand out isn't the tale of Jesus' foreskin but Farley's exploration of the town of Calcata, a bizarre mix of hippies and artists that breathed life into an abandoned town. This book is funny, irreverent ia a polite way, and more than a bit touching. Three and a half stars.
