For the last ten years, Jonathan Acuff has written advertising for clients ranging from the Home Depot to Chick-fil-A. In addition to his many day jobs, he also writes a blog called www.stuffchristianslike.net. He and his wife live with their two daughters outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

Learn more about Jonathan at http://stuffchristianslike.net/.
From a media release:
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 more than a million online readers from more than 200 countries in a new portable version. Welcome to the funny side of faith.

Abundantly illustrated with pen and ink sketches, this book is a quick read, but the points which the author makes will stay with you and cause you to think. Acuff takes a 'tongue in cheek' approach, but there is much that is recognizable in the situations he describes. Nothing escapes this author's notice, and everything is fair game.  He covers such topics as "Guide to Food Prayers", disguising gossip as prayer, styles of hand-raising, worship leaders score chart, confessing 'safe' sins, and on it goes.  Jonathan's wit and insights help us to ask the hard questions, and perhaps to see our Christian behavior in a new light.  This is a book to share with your church friends.  They will thank you for it, and after reading it, will know how to give you an appropriate hug!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Zondervan, for review purposes.  It is available through http://www.amazon.com/.
