The Christian Culture Survival Guide is about the author's humorous experiences growing up in the Christian subculture and what he's learned along the way. From overcoming the temptation to wear W.W.J.D. bracelets to the disparaging experience of witnessing to a gay man at a bar, Matthew Paul Turner offers a fun read that's packed with profound insight and truth.
The Christian Culture Survival Guide pokes fun at all the ridiculous and downright absurd pieces of the church culture puzzle. In this commentary on the Church scene, Matthew Turner, a preachers kid former editor of CCM magazine, gives us a laugh along with a sturdy dose of mirror gazing. What are we doing? What are we saying to the world who see Christians as a bunch of fruitcakes, hypocrites and beyond comprehensible? The book makes fun of the incredibly weird stuff Christians do and say and wear! Though parts are offensive many are also disturbing in that they are frank and honest depictions of the church world. This book should only be read by folks with strong sense of humor and a stronger wish to get to the real issue--a true abiding uncluttered relationship with Jesus. -- Elece Hollis, Christian Book Previews.com
