This book is hilarious. It arrived on Thursday, just before I was leaving to visit my future in-laws, so I took it with me, thinking I might be able to sneak a few pages here and there. On Thursday night, I arrived before my fiance and the house was nearly empty, so I curled up in the corner of the sofa and read for a little bit, thoroughly enjoying it. When everyone else arrived home, the book ended up on the coffee table where it (sort of) stayed for the rest of the weekend.

My fiance's brother picked it up and couldn't stop laughing. He read through the entire book in the course of a day, reading out parts that struck him as particularly amusing. My future father-in-law was frequently in stitches (he is generally an even-tempered man). And a group of his friends were over one morning and the book was passed around, laughed over and eagerly discussed.

It pokes fun at the little quirks Christian culture has and it gives us permission to laugh at ourselves. It helps us to stop taking ourselves so seriously and, wonderfully, points out the ways our thoughts aren't true. Jon Acuff does a great job of mixing humor and sincerity, and, on his blog especially, continues to point to God's great love.

I've already thought of several people I know who would love this book. I definitely recommend it.
