I like the way Craig Groeschel takes everyday situations and gives a better way to solve the problem. We all need to be more loving to each other and Craig gives some ideas how to do that. I enjoyed the book even while it was telling me to shape up.
As a new Christian, sanctification has proved to be a challenge. WEIRD is presented in a way that someone who does not have a clear grasp on Scripture yet can clearly comprehend. The only section of the book I would change is the portion on "sex". It focuses more on immorality than purity, which is something I have recently been struggling with. Overall, and amazing book!
I love this book and I would defintley recommend it to anyone at least high school age or above..(I am 17) ..because there are some parts that talk about money problems and sexual things(sexual things in a good way, not a bad way I promise) that younger people don't need to be informed about just quite yet. I read this book every night before I go to bed and from each section of the book I learn at least one thing. This book also has great quotes and sayings that I love putting as my Facebook status and people always "like" them haha. Buy this book...you won't be dissapointed!
This is the book I have been craving! If you want loving honesty about our roles as followers of Jesus Christ, this is the Biblically based source you're looking for. I commend Pastor Craig Groeschel on sharing the principles from his own personal experiences first rather than placing himself in a higher-than-you, teacher position. I highly recommend this book and cannot help, but be changed by his reiteration of the scriptures and what they mean for the way I live my life... Weird: Because Normal Isn't Working!
I liked this book a lot, but it reminded me of what my mom used to say while I was growing up: "You are so WEIRD!" CBD has a great price on this book, but I think that Love Wins is a much better book. I just can't find it on this website, which is crazy because CBD usually has everything! Oh well you are still great! I will buy Rob Bell's book whenever it comes out on CBD because I want to buy from CHRISTIAN people, not Amazon.
