Stuff Christians Like by Jonathan Acuff

This book is hilarious. Jonathan Acuff has taking the idea behind, Stuff White People Like and created a book that pokes fun at some of the odd-ball things Christians do.

Stuff Christians Like will have you nodding along with the insights and jokes that you were once too afraid to bring up to your fellow Church-goers.

Now, if you have very thin skin or get offended easily, you will want to steer clear of this book. And anything funny about Christianity for that matter.

He pokes fun at:

judging fundamentalist for being too judgmental, being known for the hate-mail Christians send, and the whole idea behind being a Christian band or a band made of Christians.

I laughed out loud at some of the observations on prayer: how many times does that person say the word, "just"?
Lord, we just pray you will just hear us tonight. We just lift up our hands to you and just pray...
His wonder of the praying for a hedge of protection when a trampoline moat of lions would be more productive was genius.

You won't want to miss the different type of hand-raising during the songs that he has illustrated.

You'll find that, agree or not, you've noticed these quirks and some of them are quite funny.

Give this book a chance and you'll have a brighter day.
