Here’s what the website says about the book:
Started on March 21, 2008 as a reaction to the wildly popular blog Stuff White People Like which was created by Christian Lander, Stuff Christians Like is a blog about the funny things we Christians do. And what they just might reveal about our faith.
Here’s the official write up from the publisher:
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. Like a satirical grenade, Acuff brings us the humor and honesty that galvanized 730,000 online readers from 209 countries in a new portable version. Welcome to the funny side of faith.
Here are a few of the “things”.
- #664. Not knowing what to do with Santa.
- #630. Awkward opposite sex friendships.
- #561. Wishing there was a socially acceptable way to buy rum for cakes.
- #557. Creating tracts that look like money.
Looks pretty funny. It appears as though he’s just poking fun at us Christians but he actually has some interesting thoughts on each one. I may order a copy.
