I am a preacher's kid (now a pastor myself) who has always laughed at these same kinds of things growing up in church. I picked this book up while killing time at Barnes & Noble one day waiting for some people to join me for dinner. I laughed so hard just flipping through it that I had to buy it on the spot. Since then I've shared with numerous church friends and it's provided many good belly laughs.

If you believe God has a sense of humor, this book is for you!

Humorous sarcasm laced every page. I liked how he tackled every aspect of the Christian life. I liked how he made fun of it. Sarcasm is wonderful, but I would have liked to see some sort of declaration of beliefs in the introduction or as an epilogue-something a new believer or searching soul could rest his eyes upon and drink in minus the sarcasm. Sarcastic humor is hard to interrpret and with churches nowadays that pick scripture to fit their theology an explanation would have been a nice addition to Stuff Christians Like. For the most part, his words rang true-hilariously so-and while I liked his book, a couple of entries caused some disquiet like his thoughts on the Old Testament. Let's start with what I liked about the book:

"He didn't come to take just the good people with him on a bus, and say it was okay if the sick folks like me clung to the side or rode on the roof. He came for us, the broken, the beaten, the severely messed up. Like me. Like you. In Mark 2:17 Jesus says, 'It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.' When I bumped into the truth, it changed the way I saw my ruined bowl of ice cream. It was no longer something I needed to stir and try to make perfect. It was no longer something I imagined Jesus and God being disguised by. My wasted years and broken promises were no longer something I needed to hide." (From "Trying Harder," pg. 200)

My own weary and distrusting heart, bruised and battered by those who have compromised the Bible and its teachings, may have examined certain entries too closely and too seriously. I posted a question on his Facebook to get a clear answer, but I have not heard a response. Maybe the interview will clear the fog and turn on some lights. I will post those questionable entries later this week in my book excerpt and discussion time. I would love to hear your take on it. After I read the Old Testament post to to my husband, he felt confused. There were many entries I could relate to, have experienced myself and with other Christians, and my laughter nearly brought down the rafters.

"I'm a professional copywriter. I am, in theory, supposed to be a highly honed, detail-dedicated arbiter of punctuation and grammar. That's why I look for typos in the worship songs at church. What's your excuse?" (Pg. 97, Finding Typos In The Worship Music)
