The Babylon Bee, known for producing today’s most popular Christian satire while poking fun at Christianity’s trends and traditions, has stepped up its game with a new book, “How to Be a Perfect Christian: Your Comprehensive Guide to Flawless Spiritual Living.”
A quick and easy read (I finished in less than 24 hours), this book will leave you laughing so hard tears will be rolling down your cheeks, all while also convicting you of how we have treated Christianity and the Christian’s role in the world.
With chapters like “Joining the Right Church,” “Serving in Church Without Ever Lifting a Finger” and “Quarantining Your Home from the Worldly Wastelands,” The Babylon Bee hits us right between the eyes with how much we focus on either the traditions or the trends … and not enough on the fact that God sent His son, Jesus, to die for our sins. With this book, everything is fair game — from Awana, to trendy coffee bars at church, from social media posts (must include coffee!), to the-bigger-the-better study Bibles.
This book will challenge readers to look into their intentions and beliefs and to decide what is truly important about Christianity … all while laughing their heads off. While it snarkily comments on the hard-fast, tried-and-true traditions as well as the latest fads and trends, “How to Be a Perfect Christian” makes sure to bring everything to an end with the true meaning of becoming a “perfect” Christian — believing in and accepting Christ’s sacrifice for us.
Five stars out of five.
