Acuff takes a witty and humorous look at Evangelical Christianity in this collection of short vignettes which admittedly will primarily resonate with with those who have grown up in conservative circles. If you are not a fan of satire then this book is definitely not for you. Often Christians feel the freedom to laugh or make jokes at the expense of those not part of their subculture and bristle when the roles are reversed and we are the ones being skewered. In a clever and engaging way Acuff writes what many of us have thought ourselves or even actually done, but are too embarrassed to admit. If we cannot laugh at ourselves as we grow in the Gospel then maybe we need to re-evaluate if we truly are willing to experience the joy of life in Christ. After all; everything is a gift of God including humor and satire...
