"When Bad Christians Happen to Good People" by Dave Burchett

Every now and then I come across a book that just looks like a fun read.  And this is one of those books.  I mean, the title should make you cackle with laughter or at least chuckle softly if you are a more reserved person.  Anyway, as the title suggests, the book covers the various hypocrisies in the modern Church.  I say modern because it does not dive too deep into Old Testament prophet books that go into the hypocrisy.  But the book does quote heavily from the New Testament and the words of Yeshua.  I personally liked the part where it talked about modern-day Christians not knowing enough theology.  Because--let's face it--if you can't explain what you believe or if you don't even know what you believe, that's a recipe for disaster.  While this book has some fun humor in it, it can be a bit slow at times.  But, for some people, they really need to read it.  This book has tough love.  It will be hard to read at times, but it delivers Truth.  Trust in Yeshua and take the plank out of your eye.  I'm still working on that. ;)
