Sometimes, we fall in love on mission trips even though we know we’ll break up when we get back. Sometimes, you have to shot block a friend’s prayer because she’s asking God to bless an obviously bad dating relationship. Sometimes, you think, “I wish I had a t-shirt that said ‘I direct deposit my tithe’ so people wouldn’t judge me.” Sometimes, the stuff that comes with faith is funny. This is that stuff. Jonathan Acuff’s Stuff Christians Like is your field guide to all things Christian. In it you’ll learn the culinary magic of the crock-pot. Think you’ve got a Metro worship leader—Use Acuff’s checklist. Want to avoid a prayer handholding faux pas? Acuff has you covered. Like a satirical grenade, Acuff brings us the humor and honesty that galvanized more than a million online readers from more than 200 countries in a new portable version. Welcome to the funny side of faith.

Customer Reviews of Stuff Christians Like

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! This is a look at the lighter side of faith. Jonathan Acuff is very insightful and points out things that happen every week at church but we're so used to them, we don't even see how silly they are. Things like the side hug, finding errors in the music overheads, leaving your cell phone on in church, being the designated pray-er at family functions, and many more. I was laughing out loud. This is a book to pass on to your friends or laugh over at parties. He nailed it.

Editorial Reviews

Yes, the popular blog-turned-paperback Stuff Christians Like is a direct rip-off of the even more popular blog-turned-paperback Stuff White People Like. And yes, one of the things Christians like is making their own versions of "secular" intellectual property. Acuff's is not the first book of insider evangelical observational humor (see Patricia Klein, Joel Kilpatrick, Matthew Paul Turner), but his background as a trend hunter at an advertising company makes it sharper than most. It's also far more accurate sociology than all the sour-faced "explaining evangelicalism" books that came out after Bush's reelection.
