Brother Cristian

For many years, he sold lottery tickets and lived what he calls a life of sin - until at age 60 he pulled a Bible out of the trash and in it found God. Today, three years later, he calls himself Hermano Cristian and is a frequent sight near Carrera 10 and Calle 13, offering the Bible on CDs and USB memory sticks. (So don't tell me that the Holy Word doesn't evolve with the times.) 
Hermano Cristian certainly is enthusiastic and happy in his new calling.

But, are lottery tickets or Bibles a better value? I suppose that depends on what kind of faith we have.
