This book may be light of heart, but it doesn't forget--or let the reader forget--who is the light of the world. The author has a great style of writing and brings a rejuvenating spirit to a Christian narrative without slipping into the dangers of "cashing in" or "commercialization" the message of Christ. The real life examples are at time humorous and maybe even a little irreverent, but they are always pertinent and thought-provoking--I especially thought the one of the old man who never knew how to pray was, potentially, life-changing. What if we lived like we knew, we really knew, that God is sitting next to us, listening to us, and interacting with us on every level? All in all, the only thing this book would need to get 5 stars is if it came with a "lousy t-shirt".

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I have been a Christian for more than 50 years and have always been amazed by the self-righteouness of what I now understand to be "t-shirt Christians" I highly recommend this book.

I became a Christian and all I got was this Lousy T-shirt is about a naive college student who becomes a Christian by looking at his girlfriend's Bible one night. Through reading and experiencing God's Word that night, he discovers the truths and words of wisdom God's Word has to offer. Throughout the story, the author addresses that we as Christians do not need to be wearing a souvenir (or lousy) t-shirt, but we need to experience the amazing journey God has to offer by sharing a strong relationship with him. From cover to cover, Vince Antonucci uses several illustrations that reflect the quote "replacing souvenir religion with a spiritual passion." So many people go through the motions of being a Christ follower, but never experience the authentic journey of following him. They are t-shirt wearers. Another unique illustration he uses in the book is about a baby living within its mother's womb. We need to be the same with Christ. Not actually living inside him, but living with him. Throughout the book, Vince uses different examples and illustrations that share similar concept of following Christ authentically. In conclusion, we do not need to be the side line Christian. We all need to be on the field shining for Jesus showing others what he has done for us. The world does not need any more t-shirt wearers but needs more authentic Christ followers who can share His love with a corrupt world.

An easy read as it had me laughing in one moment and in deep thought the next. My favorite chapter was ¿Monk¿. If you¿re interested in growing your faith and would like to have words that can describe what your experiencing, this is it.

Reading this book was easy and fun. It has a very practical approach to christianity. I would recommend this book to both new and old christians alike. There is something in it for everyone.

After reading this book I have a new outlook and an all new energy. I found myself deep in thought over and over again. It revealed and reminded me how I am wearing the t-shirt and showed me how to get rid of it. If you feel held back, bored or tired, read this book.
