About "Weird: Because Normal Isn't Working"

How to break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.
- Koorong

"When people describe my lifestyle or family as weird, I find comfort," writes author Craig Groeschel. Who then shares a Christ-centered philosophy, on everything from money to scheduling to purity, to help you break out of the normal rut and live according to the rhythms of God's grace and truth of his word. Normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are, at best, strained and, in most cases, just surviving. Even though we live in one of the most prosperous places on earth, normal is still living paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead. In our oversexed world, lust, premarital sex, guilt, and shame are far more common than purity, virginity, and a healthy married sex life. And when it comes to God, the majority believe in him, but the teachings of scripture rarely make it into their everyday lives. Simply put, normal isn't working. Groeschel's WEIRD views will help you break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.

Essential reading
5 stars By Mel, Mar 30 2014
I loved Weird and the very practical challenges it presented. It helped me evaluate and think about many areas of my life and pointed me in the direction I want to go. I think if any of us takes a good look around it is pretty clear that 'normal' isn't working so well. Weird challenges the status quo and challenges us as Christians to live skillfully by putting Gods wisdom and His ways into practice in our lives. The wonderfully Weird!

It's not so bad being weird
4 stars By Michael, Aug 15 2012
The pace of everyday life makes it easy for us to neglect our relationship with God and let our jobs and schedules dictate our lives rather than Him.  Craig Groeschel's Weird is an excellent book to help us take stock of our lives.  Groeschel examines five areas of life: Time, Money, Relationships, Sex, and Values.  Everyone struggles with at least one of these aspects of life, and many of us struggle with all of them in some way or other.  Groeschel looks at the scope of each problem and takes a practical approach to these areas by examining what the bible has to say and how to apply those biblical principles.  He includes an number of personal stories to help clarify points and illustrate how easily we are distracted from God.
Weird is very readable but also very challenging.  It is a useful book for new Christians to see how Christianity can be practically worked out, and mature Christians to critically evaluate their lives.  Groeschel's demonstrates that to be sold out completely to God means that you will be weird in pretty much every way.  It's pretty confronting because it's true.
