Christian Satire…There’s Not Enough of It!

A few weeks ago my wife and I were in Borders reading books we never intended to buy (come on, you do it too).  One book she came across was Stuff Christians Like, a sarcastic, satirical, extremely funny jab at Christian culture.  It was written by Jonathan Acuff, a Christian blogger and writer.  Pastor Paul later told me the audio book was (temporarily) available for free on christianaudio.com.  Christian Audio gives away a free audio book every month (Pastor Paul always finds the good stuff) and “Stuff Christian’s Like” was last month’s free download.  With our upcoming road trip to Kansas, I thought, “This audio book sounds like a harmless diversion from highway boredom.”

A diversion? Yes.  Harmless? No.
Uncontrollable fits of laughter nearly caused me to swerve into oncoming traffic.  Repeatedly.

Here are some of my favorite “Stuff Christian’s Like” with links to the Blog Posts.

Comparing Braveheart to Christianity

Maybe I’m the only one that thinks this is funny because I seriously stopped counting how many times I heard a Braveheart reference in preaching class.
