Stuff Christians Like...
There are plenty of hilarious things he points out in this books. Things like the fact that Christians tend to use the word “just” for commas while praying (for example “Lord we just pray that you would just hear our prayers tonight”), or how also when praying we tend to say the name of God over and over again as if God might have forgotten who we were talking to (Example, “Lord Jesus, we just pray father God, that Lord you would…”). He talks about we “feel slightly disappointed when someone accepts our fake offer of generosity” and how we tend to tell “testimonies that are exciting right up to the moment you became a Christian”. And then finishes up with more serious topics like “confessing sin” and how “trying harder” doesn’t get you into heaven.
I highly recommend this book (and Jon Acuff’s blog http://www.jonacuff.com/stuffchristianslike/) to anyone!
