Sometimes, we fall in love on mission trips even though we know we'll break up when we get back. Sometimes, you have to shot block a friend's prayer because she's asking God to bless an obviously bad dating relationship. Sometimes, you think, "I wish I had a t-shirt that said 'I direct deposit my tithe' so people wouldn't judge me."
^ ^Sometimes, the stuff that comes with faith is funny.
^ ^^ ^This is that stuff.
^ ^Jonathan Acuff's Stuff Christians Like is your field guide to all things Christian. In it you'll learn the culinary magic of the crock-pot. Think you've got a Metro worship leader - Use Acuff's checklist. Want to avoid a prayer handholding faux pas? Acuff has you covered.
^ ^Like a satirical grenade, Acuff brings us the humor and honesty that galvanized 450,000 online readers from 199 countries in a new portable version. Welcome to the funny side of faith.
Jonathan fell in love with God and the power of ideas watching his dad start a Southern Baptist Church in an old car wash in New England when he was in the fourth grade. After attending an all boys Catholic High School, he reversed his family's exodus north and headed south to Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. At Samford he studied journalism, met his wife, had two daughters and ended up in Alpharetta, Georgia.
He's spent the last 11 years writing for clients ranging from mega churches like the one he attends, North Point Community Church, to mega brands like Home Depot. Then, things got funny. On a whim, he started a satirical blog called stuffchristianslike.net. Jonathan hoped this reaction to the popular site stuffwhitepeoplelike would start dialog about how silly it is to slap a God-spin on popular secular ideas.
Jonathan told 100 friends. They told 100 friends, and in a little over a year, half a million readers from 200 countries read more than 3 million pages on stuffchristianslike.net. Now, this pastor's kid, with a mind for branding, a sarcastic mouth and a heart for God is challenging how we laugh about faith in a new book Stuff Christians Like.
