Sometimes, we fall in love on mission trips even though we know we’ll break up when we get back. Sometimes, you have to shot block a friend’s prayer because she’s asking God to bless an obviously bad dating relationship.

Interview with the Author:
Stuff Christians Like, the book
Where did you get the idea for the book?
There was a popular site called Stuff White People Like. I feel like it’s weird that we Christians always steal popular secular ideas like making “Got Milk?” say “Got God?” I thought it would be a good idea to discuss that problem by committing that problem.
What are the major themes of the book?
I try to clear the clutter of Christianity away so we can see the beauty of Christ.
What kind of research did you have to do for the book?
Writing the site gave me lots of things to talk about and write about.
