Stuff Christians Like (2010)
by Jonathan Acuff
No current Talk conversations about this book.
This book is divided in ten major chapters and the author writes about the topics in those chapters in deep details, giving his perception of many common situations that we see happening suring services at our churches.
The author uses all his sarcasm to describe all situations that happen in a daily basis at the church, at the office, anywhere, that are related to the Christian faith. In one hand, this book is extremely funny and if you are willing to laugh out loud, you could not choose a better book. In the other hand, the author nails deep in our conscience. It is like a â€śwake up callâ€ť, and if we start thinking about what he is writing, instead of laughing we should be crying. He just describes the naked truth of the current status of situations happening inside our faith. He has a great sense of humor and perception. Some chapters are really hilarious, like how to handle the handholding situation during a service.
God is not a joke. We need to take God seriously, and that does not mean that we cannot have fun and laugh, but when we start judging people by what they do or what they donâ€™t do, we start trying to act as God. Thanks to the author for allowing us to note and meditate on how several times silly things can distract us from the things that really matters.
This book is classified as a Humor/General Book and was written by Jonathan Acuff in 2010.

Very funny, fun read. I read through this and then listened to the audiobook with Kristen. We laughed til we cried. Well written and full of things that Christians think but don't say. Enjoy!
I love Jon Acuff, love his blog and this book is just a sampling of his satirical wit. He has a keen sense for calling us on all the goofy stuff that distracts us from the God of the Universe, while still challenging and encouraging us to join him in maintaining a passionate pursuit of Christ. Pick this one up but only if you're ready to laugh at yourself. :-)
This book can only be appreciated by people who have travelled in evangelical circles. The author does a great job of pointing out some of the more inane posturing that goes on.
