I liked this stuff

It's fun to have an easy listen about aspects of the Christian life we know so well yet might not have seen the humor in before now. This isn't a serious theological treatise, it is fun and funny and somewhat irreverent about the things people of faith do in church and in their everyday lives. The style of humor is ironic so don't fall into the trap of taking the essays on face value or at all too seriously. It's especially nice to have someone prove that Christians do hav a sense of humor and that we even laugh about ourselves--though not the faith.

One bonus of this audio book is that Jonathan Acuff adds in a few tidbits that were a function of his experience recording the book so that it feels even more immediate for the listener.

We laughed, we cried then we prayed

This is a funny book, particularly if you're Protestant. My husband (the Presbyterian) and I (the Catholic, former Baptist) listened to this audiobook while driving around for weekend errands. We laughed and stopped the book to make discuss the truth in the humor. Yet, near the end, on a part about ice cream and mustard (I can't explain without spoiling it), I was deeply touched and cried, we pulled over, and prayed. We've been recommending the book to many of our friends and drawing examples from it.
There are a lot of inside the culture jokes, if your culture includes prayer groups and mega-churches. My fellow Catholics and traditional Anglo-Catholic friends may find it half as funny, but still funny.
