This book calls Christians to embrace the World According to NUTS, where NUTS is an acronym for Never Underestimate the Spirit.

From the book:
All people are different, but some are more different than others. Christians are meant to be the most different of all. Yet we often "normalise" God. We judge what is a successful Christian and a successful church by the world according to Normal, not the world according to NUTS, the wisdom of Jesus.
In JESUS DRIVES ME CRAZY!, Leonard Sweet reminds us of the "crazy wisdom" of Christ and how our lives and our churches can and should be different from the way "normal" people live. He says, "Jesus wants to drive you crazy. . . crazy in love with God, with life." JESUS DRIVES ME CRAZY! challenges you to make the upside-down wisdom of God your own, inspiring you to live an extraordinary Christian life that does not conform to the world, but transforms the world.
When you truly grasp the freeing truth that we do not have to conform to this world, then you can become the crazy, zany, unpredictable, but powerful force for Jesus you were intended to be. JESUS DRIVES ME CRAZY! shows how, by losing your mind, you can find your soul.

-Publisher

This book is a biblical and theological meditation on the meaning of discipleship a discipleship defined not in terms of those who throng Jesus, but of those who throne Jesus. What it means to "throne him" is to let Jesus drive you crazy crazy in the sense that it goes against how normal people see and function in the world. A disciple is someone who is crazy in love with Jesus. Christians don't do normal. One of the biggest mistakes a Christian can make is to believe that the way they see the world is the way most other people see the world. We see the world differently. We9re abnormal. We're weird. We're eccentric. Christians have an off-kilter view of the world. Loving your enemies, turning the other cheek, going the second mile, living without anger, living without lusting, being strong in the broken places_all these things normal people just have a hard time thinking these thoughts and living these ways. There is the "World According to Normal" where most Christians currently live. This book calls Christians to the World According to NUTS . . . where NUTS is an acronym for Never Underestimate the Spirit.
