Christianish by Mark Steele is a book guaranteed to unsettle readers' ideas of what it means to be a Christian. Steele, a stand up comic uses his skills well in this book. Several sections were so laugh out loud funny that I had to read them to my husband, others had me snorting and chuckling. He uses humor to bring readers in, and then compels further interest through his pointed look at how Christians are making Christ look bad because we want faith to be comfortable rather than real. Living a Christianish life means calling ourselves Christian without ever being stretched into the new beings God wants us to be. This is the rare book that actually made me laugh AND cry! Steele's story about a young man working his way through a ropes course while battling acrophobia brought me to tears, and Steele used the powerful story to demonstrate what real faith looks like. Stepping out in fear, but constantly trusting in the Father's plan and love, never freezing and turning tail. Sometimes we need someone to shake up our faith, and Steele is the perfect person for the job.
