About The Book
With a biting, satirical style reminiscent of The Onion, How to Be a Perfect Christian takes a humorous look at the quirks of cultural Christianity while subtly challenging the reader to search for more than a cultural faith.
Written in the trademark style of The Babylon Bee, this book humorously satirizes cultural Christianity while peppering in subtle challenges to the reader. Through humor and sarcasm (and a handy meter to rank your “holiness” as you progress through the book), readers will be called to find a more biblical understanding of the Christian faith, all while poking fun at the quirks of the modern, American Christian community.
Warning: This book is not for everyone! If you’re overly complacent, this book will confuse you. If you’re the slightest bit legalistic, it will offend you. Read at your own risk! *winks & giggles*
In How To Be A Perfect Christian, The Babylon Bee goes the whole nine yards—humor, irony, and exaggeration—to produce this highly satirical piece meant to poke fun at some traditions that “trend” in Christian circles with the hope that it would lead the reader down the true path set apart from legalism and complacency. With much quirky humor tucked into [almost] every line that ultimately builds into a monumental display of talent, wittiness, wisdom, and skill, it is practically impossible to turn the pages of this masterpiece without spurting a giggle here, a chortle there, and a cackle every few flips! The boldness with which The Babylon Bee engaged and executed this unique work of art is worth commendation as it signals a poignant courage that is scarce and much needed in our day, and especially in the Church to speak up about what is true and beneficial to all in the Body of Christ.
A stunning and thoroughly well written work of art deserving applause!
