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 will help you break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.

What they won't tell you
Ok, here's the skinny on this book. I just finished it today and what they won't tell you is that this book is basically about how applying biblical principals to your life can totally revolutionize you. There are a lot of biblical references here and for that matter a hefty portion of it is evangelical, but done classy. In such a way that if you're a Christian or on the border there it's not offensive at all, but if you're a solid atheist it IS enough to cause you to shelf the book. That said, the book for me was an absolute amazing read. Practical advice for applying biblical principals and a good reference tool that I'll be keeping on my shelf for a while.

Become weird, as normal isn't working
Good morning everybody. This was my first ever Christian based teaching book. I started the book in October of 2015. It's a total of 17 chapters in total.
Craig hits home to what God wants us to act in his image. Through his life lessons and flaws, it can be reflected on in our lives too.
The writer hits on everything that is wrong in trying to live a normal life, which isn't primarily focused on God.
I recently have started to take strides in my life. Before going back to church, actually comprehending the bible and acting out the lessons from Jesus and Craig, I didn't realize that I was a luke warm Christian to say the least.
The bible, which is God's word, thoughts, and actions is where you will start to change from a luke warm to a full time Christian.
I really do recommend this audio book, as Craig does a great job in what typically holds us back from a great relationship with Jesus and how to stop being normal and become weird.
It was helpful to me, to take notes and strive to change things in my life. I hope with God's word in the bible and tho book that like me, it will start to change you from within and allow you to become who God intended you to be in his image not the world.
