There's a reason it's not called "the pearl of low price"

Yesterday I was in Border's, browsing around their religion books. On one bookcases in the Christian Inspiration section, there was an advirtisement for their membership card: "Join now! It's free and easy!" It struck me as appropriate, in a funny way, for that shelf, because living a Christian life can be at once both the easiest and most free thing in the world and the most difficult and costly.
