Is it ok to sometimes poke fun and laugh at ourselves? I hope so because if not, I’m in some big trouble. As in, I might get blacklisted by the Christian evangelical subculture.
In reponse to the question about the 10 Most Essential Christian Books, I received some fabulous and interesting suggestions. But I also started getting a list from people regarding the most anti-essential Christian books or in other words, books that should never be published so I’ve taken the liberty of listing some of them here. And if you’re gonna get offended, I have two things to say: 1) It’s not my list or umm, it’s not all mine. Don’t kill the messenger! and 2) Relax. It’s okay to make fun of ourselves sometimes. I hope.
If you want to laugh even more, check out 10 reasons why men shouldn’t be ordained.
I’ll share my list of essential book soon but for now, enjoy this list of the Christian Books that should NOT be Published from various commenters from this blog. You folks are mean!
And dare I ask:
What would you add to the list?

These were so funny I had to read the aloud to my husband!

A Messiah’s Guide to Deliberately Disappointing Your Followers: Bono
These are funny! And, yes, it is totally okay to “make fun of ourselves sometime.”
So, honestly, how would you make fun of yourself?
Maybe other people have some ideas…
Just to be clear, i am in no way, shape, or form making fun of myself here. i am clearly and unapologetically making fun of the people i named in my list. i anticipate the critique of my passive-aggressiveness, and accept it with lovingly open arms 🙂
In a recent Mars Hill podcast, Rob Bell announced the title of his next book as ‘The Purpose-Driven Shack of Jabez’. That should sell!
Loved it. Laughed so hard over the John Calvin one, I may have lost my salvation. Hey, wait a minute….

Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church (without ever talking to ANY of them)–D. A. Carson
Unfortunately this was actually published
“How to Make Money by Writing a Book That Is Anti-Emergent Even If The Only People Who Will Care Are Those Who Already Are Anti-Emergent” from the authors of “Why We’re Not Emergent, by Two Guys Who Should Be”
(had to add my two cents)
Just linked to to this post from my blog on http://www.conversantlife.com/jodiehowerton

the Creflo Dollar one is hilarious but it’s also true. I heard of another book by Creflo that will soon release :
” Cop-A-Dollar: The Secret of Ministry ” by Creflo A. Dollar
I also think Rick Warren’s one is hilarious even though I somewhat like Rick. Anytime you see Rick on tv being interviewed he has a funny way of bouncing around with words or stories in answering the question.
The John MacArthur one is also funny. But he too is coming out with a few other books as well :
” Knowing My Bible But Not Knowing God ” By John MacArthur
” How to Replace God with Your Bible ” by John MacArthur
” The Legalistic Driven Life ” by John MacArthur
Yeah and you guessed it, Rob Bell is also coming out with a few as well :
” Too Cool for Jesus: How to Become a Joke ” by Rob Bell
Awesome. Just awesome.

I’m passing it on…
Now that Eugene Cho has published his list, it is permissible to make fun of him. How shall we do it? The trouble with taking on an oriental is they are so brainy. Enuff said.
“oriental” is for a rug, not a person.
Way to put your racism right out there.
‘ Dr ‘. James Willingham what was the purpose of your comment? Looks like all your bible knowledge and training hasn’t done you any good except turn you into some kind of religious/racist pharisee? The trouble with you is that the ‘brainy orientals’ you refer to were created by God, or the God you claim to believe in unless of course you’ve created your own god in your own image.
Thanks for your comment. You’ve basically just exposed yourself and where your own heart is. It’s amazing how blogs can help us. Dr. James Willingham, I will remember that name.
Wow. Judge much? Dr. Willingham is a seasoned believer (did you read his bio?) Saved in ’57. Pastor of 4 churches. Married for 35 years. To me that says he’s probably old enough to be my grandfather. Back in the day Asians were referred to as Orientals. I prefer to deal graciously with my elders and choose to believe that he used the term he grew up with, not because he is a racist, but because he has been too busy preaching the Word of Christ to keep up with our current culture’s need to be politically correct in word while maintaining racist undertones. Take the log out of your own eye “truth” before you speak ill of a messenger of the gospel…who is your brother.
My mother used the term “Oriental” last year. She is 67. I told her we don’t use that term anymore. Her response “Oh, when did that change?” She is retired and hangs out with older people – she would be really embarrassed to be called a racist! Please be gentle.
Can I play too? 🙂

The Contortions of Saint Augustine
simply poking fun at people different than you.
a joke of christianity.
i’m offended not because i support the people you’re poking fun at, but because you’re supposed to love all brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of how you feel they’re wrong. not to be cheesy, but would Jesus come up with a list of “anti-essential christian books” about His children? i think not.
“What Would Jesus Not Do?” by Lucy.
and it’s Michael for the win!!!!!
Just ran across the list. Very funny. 🙂
Just stumbled on your blog from a link somebody posted in Imonk’s comments. Your list is awesome. The MacArthur title is hilarious, but also disturbing due to its accuracy.
Great list, I also found this via Imonk’s comments…

21 Irrefutable Laws of Selling Books by John Maxwell
Turn Your Sermon Series Into A Bestseller by Max Lucado
hehehe. I love most of these guys except joel osteen… but this is really funny 🙂
How about “We know God’s plan for your life – not you” by John Bevere ???
“Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire. If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.” (James)
You might think this stuff is funny, but apparently God doesn’t. God is not amused when we mock His servants just because we disagree with them. You’d be farther ahead to pray for these guys if you think they’re wrong.
Don’t assume we (can’t speak for anyone on here) haven’t prayed for these who have been parodied. Also you shouldn’t assume that just because we list someone’s name that means we don’t like them or are mocking them. Sometimes we are just having fun with them based on their own stereotypes and patterns they fall into. For instance, Rick Warren talks about the grief he got over his “purpose-driven” Hawaiian shirts (he has since stopped wearing them). John Maxwell has been teased about this “Laws of…” and “Rules of..” titles. Mark Driscoll has talked about his title of “The Cussing Preacher” given to him by Don Miller.
The scriptures say only God knows the heart of man, which includes the motives behind the comments here, so be careful when you begin to or even hint at judgment of others. Hopefully you are taking your own advice and praying for us here.
BTW, I’m sure you know this, but just because someone claims to be a “servant of God” doesn’t mean they are.
“Unbroken seriousness of a melodramatic or somber kind will inevitably communicate a sickness of soul”

Right Behind is also a great website. . . http://exharpazo.blogspot.com/
How about “When God Doesn’t Write Your Love Story” and “When Dreams Just Don’t Come True” by Eric and Leslie Ludy… they have altered the minds of so many young Christian girls into thinking that God will bring them the perfect man on a white unicorn when they are entirely focused on the Lord and it will be written in the clouds from the heavens that they are made for one another. Yet, then again, so many amazing Christian folk never marry.
Thanks a lot, Lauren. You’re going to put our unicorn rental company out of business.
Lauren… I read those books, and I realized that they were absolutely insane. You are amazing. That is all.
…And it just took me one wrecked relationship to figure that out.

I apologize for offending some of you. Apparently, I upset some because the list was mean-spirited, poked fun of leaders, didn’t satirize any women, and because I re-posted an old post. Lose-lose situation.
Eugene— bless you for keeping it real. Please, please don’t be discouraged. Humor based on insights like yours is one of the best ways we, as followers of Christ, can maintain our humility, objectivity and sensitivity. To all the others who are pissed— I’m for sorry God is not small enough to fit into the little boxes we design with our theology.
Well…there should be a book about being thin-skinned Christians.
Thanks for making me laugh in a long time like that bro,
