Description



About the Book



"Why does it so often feel like Christians can't talk about the real, hard stuff in life? We know our lives should reflect Jesus; what He did and said, and how He interacted with others. But if we're being honest, there are days when we face tough, confusing things that can make us feel, well, very not like Jesus. As our culture moves further from truth and grace, Christians are burned-out, isolated, and unsure of where to turn for sound biblical advice that applies to their everyday struggles. If you've ever felt this way or wished someone would talk about things like forgiveness, mental health, broken friendships, redirected dreams, sex, facts versus feelings, church hurt, rest, weakness, healing, and more in honest, down-to-earth terms while sticking to what Scripture has to say about them, you've come to the right place. Confessions of a Crappy Christian is for you if you."--



Book Synopsis



Why does it so often feel like Christians can't talk about the real, hard stuff in life? We know our lives should reflect Jesus; what He did and said, and how He interacted with others. But if we're being honest, there are days when we face tough, confusing things that can make us feel, well, very not like Jesus. As our culture moves further from truth and grace, Christians are burned-out, isolated, and unsure of where to turn for sound biblical advice that applies to their everyday struggles. If you've ever felt this way or wished someone would talk about things like forgiveness, mental health, broken friendships, redirected dreams, sex, facts versus feelings, church hurt, rest, weakness, healing, and more in honest, down-to-earth terms while sticking to what Scripture has to say about them, you've come to the right place. Confessions of a Crappy Christian is for you if you
  • have ever thought you're too messed up for church
  • feel exhausted and alone in your struggles
  • think you need to complete a checklist before God will love you
  • need a friend who cares about you too much to let you stay stuck

With honesty and vulnerability, Blake Guichet, host of the popular podcast Confessions of a Crappy Christian, helps us embrace the truth that we can't do it all perfectly and gives us the wisdom, guidance, and hope to move from "crappy" Christian into a freer and fuller walk with Christ.



Review Quotes




Guichet adapts her Confessions of a Crappy Christian podcast to the page, delivering a forthright debut that explores Christian insecurities and doubts. Combining exegesis with personal reflection, the author answers 15 questions that Christians might feel uncomfortable asking, such as "Would Jesus be a jerk?" and "Why are Christians so weird about sex?" Guichet answers "Can God really use my weaknesses?" in the affirmative and points to Paul's openness about succumbing to pride, leading the author to conclude that "the Christian life is not one marked by having it all together, but instead by serving the One who does." The author recounts feeling crushed when her dreams of going to law school didn't work out, but she came to realize that her ministry job was always God's purpose for her. She enumerates "lies that keep us from healing" and posits, for example, that the belief "I need to be able to do it all myself" fails to recognize that God made humans to be social creatures who can lean on each other for support. The author's unflinching candor--whether discussing her marital troubles or struggling to understand why God hasn't resolved her severe anxiety--elevate this volume, and readers will appreciate the sage advice. Christians will feel heartened.--Publishers Weekly

If I could describe this book with one word— freedom. After listening to Blake speak her heart and soul, I have laughed, cried, felt convicted, and encouraged. Blake Guichet's Confessions of A Crappy Christian changed me in the best way possible. Highly recommend!

Blake Guichet writes with remarkable honesty and vulnerability about her own life journey and several topics that are often taboo in Christian culture. I appreciate how she is not afraid to have the hard conversations and admit that the church is made up of imperfect people who often get it wrong. I have listened to several episodes of her podcast and she is just as candid in this book as she is on her podcast. Highly recommend for those who grew up in the church during the 90s/2000s and those who struggle with the modern church. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley.
