    My favorite thing about this book is Ed's willingness to make fun of himself, and other religiously minded people (like me). The eternal truth is we're all lost. There are no degrees of lost. We're all searching, and lots of us become frustrated with what we perceive as disingenuous belief in platitudes and a lack of honesty in our doubts about what we've been sold as absolutes. Ed does a great job communicating this, and actually finishes off with some possible solutions to the problem.

    I really enjoyed reading this book...Gungor's style is candid and humorous. Not a "deep", hard to understand book, but at the same time I found it thought-provoking and interesting. He tends to come from a different, out-of-the-box point of view. I would highly recommend this book!

    Ed Gungor uses humor to preach the Gospel. I saw him speak and fell in love with his teachings. He is really funny and spot on. Buy this book, you won't regret it!

    Humorous and telling. Started reading veraciously, then tapered off as I felt a little preached at. However, I agree with the message.

    Fabulous book about the pitfalls of today's Christian and what to do about it.

    A book about avoiding 'Christian-ese' faith and getting back to what the Bible actually says.
