Funny and informative
I started listening this this audio about 6 months ago and put it down after 20 min because it made me so mad.

I gave it another go just recently and glad i did. Now i get it, its supposed to be funny. John has a great delivery, and is sarcastic. One the one hand he's teaching you how not to be as a Christian, on the other hand he's informing you what modern PC-Christians are like in America. The sarcastic wit could convince you to change a few of your ways and ideas and the way you look at worship.

The biggest problem i had was that, in the audio recording, there was not enough lapse in silence between one subject and the next, so he would end talking about one thing, name the topic of something else and start talking about that before you realize he wasn't talking about the previous topic any more.

I recommend this if you are ok with laughing at your faith a little, and willing to make some changes in your life.

Tim Hawkins is Funny, this guy is obnoxious.
If you were to take someone that talks really fast, and really says nothing, that would be this author. I kept on waiting for a point with all of the mindless speaking for 45 minutes. I even tried going to the last chapter to see if there's anything edifying or even funny about the book. I hate to be (according to his definition) judgmental, but he's just not funny, and actually, his mindless diatribe can be quite annoying. Since I didn't get this at CA, but one of their competitors, I really don't remember how much I paid, but even if it was free, I would feel ripped off for the time listening to this, and I'm pretty sure that I know what humor is. Tim Hawkins is funny, Greg Laurie is funny. This guy is obnoxious.

This is for the guys...
This book is hilarious guy-to-guy stuff, I would never let my wife listen to it because she doesn't share my childish sense of humour.

Okay, some parts I insisted that she listen to, like ChainSaw Jesus because he has a point that fear converts quicker than love - and Who Told You That You Were Naked from the more spiritual last section.

John is a liberal Christian and I love how he sarcastically mimics liberals who like to bash conservative Christians like me - who made sure the first thing our kids learned was that Santa Clause is not real!

John Acuff is the John Cleese of Christian Comedy!

He makes fun of us ALL as Christians and the silly things we did in life as we grew, experienced, experimented and perhaps even prayer-blocked a bad prayer that we knew was not in the best interests of the prayee.
