Rogue Reviews: Stuff Christians Like

It’s the middle of the month again, which means it’s time for the next round of Rogue Reviews!

Stuff Christians Like by Jonathan Acuff

Stuff Christians Like is a published collection of many of the essays that can be found on the blog by the same name, Stuff Christians Like. The author, Jonathan Acuff, uses a tongue-in-cheek approach to comment on all sorts of things anyone who has spent a decent amount of time in an American church would recognize. The book covers all sorts of topics, from prayer to church to the Bible, but all in a way that tastefully pokes fun of the idiosyncrasies many American Christians have adopted (such as using the word “just” over and over in a prayer and the ubiquitous metrosexual worship leader).

My sister bought this book for me for graduation because she thought I would appreciate Acuff’s sense of humor, and she was completely right. Several of the essays had me in tears of laughter. It’s definitely not something I would recommend to someone who can’t take a joke about church, but if you’re someone who doesn’t have a problem acknowledging and laughing at your own quirks, I would definitely suggest picking this book up.
