The Bible Redux (Styled like a fashion magazine with celebrity features: Angelina, Bono)

There seems to be no limits to the depths that celebrity culture will plunge and exploit. Bono should stop phoning in U2 records if he wants to have a positive effect on the world.

Passages are written out in a magazine-style format and accompanied by striking images. Jolie's picture is included alongside Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and U2 frontman Bono, to illustrate the importance of doing good deeds. They were selected after the publishers asked the Swedish public which famous figures in modern times represented goodness and compassion.

Other images include a shirtless male model striding through the waves and a black-and-white close-up of a couple about to kiss.
