Southern Fried Gospel of Johnny Mark

The Southern Fried Gospel of Johnny Mark: A Southern Paraphrase was written by Gary Cummings and is available at It is not only a paraphrase in "redneck" English, it is also a transculturation - it resets the story of Mark in the "American South."
Sample: "Listen, your own family will turn you over to be killed. Children will even have their own mama and daddy lynched. Everyone will hate your guts because of me. Don't wait for any rapture, cause you'll have to stick with me to the end of the world to be saved."


  1. Hey I did this in 2006, warts and all. I was ill with a serious illness and some typos got missed. I hope to bring out a seoond printing with a clean text.
    Thanks, Gary Cummings

  2. Thank you for the update. Please let me know when your second printing is ready!
