    1 thought on “Christianish: What If We're Not Really Following Jesus at All?

    1. The premise is good, are we following what Jesus taught and walked or are we following what we think the Christian church teaches As everyone knows those are not the same thing Have we become so worried about what our church and fellow members think of us that we have lost sight of what Jesus and God think of us The writing is very good Mr Steele uses examples from his own life to illustrate principles that Jesus taught and show how we follow and how we diverge from those teachings He had quite [...]

    2. 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 Chri [...]

    3. Followers of Christ are called Christians, so what are those that are going through the motions or putting on airs , attending church services out of duty called Christianish I found this book to make me think about why I attend church services Is it for me to get to know my Savior, to please my family, or so the neighbors think I m a better person than I am.I liked the way in which Steele put everyday situations into reflecting on my way of thinking about my relationship to Christ I would encou [...]

    4. Really enjoyed this book It was entertaining and convicting all at the same time Mark is a good writer and has called us as believers to live at a authentic place and making our message not about us I really recommend this book especially in a small group setting.

    5. I honestly could not finish it No where in the 1st 120 pages did I find anything other than the author on an Ego trip I donated this book and I hope someone else reads it and it motivates them to do great things for mankind.

    6. Very interesting Mark has a very engaging and funny style loved his stories and then how he related them to whether or not we are really following Jesus or just acting Christianish Too often the latter, I m afraid.

    7. Christianish What If We re Not Really Following Jesus at All From the CoverIt may feel like authentic faith It may even look like the real deal Yet it s often easy to settle for the souvenir t shirt the appearance of a transformed heart instead of taking the actual trip through true life change We find ourselves settling for a personal faith that s been polluted by culture, and diluted by other people s take on spirituality.Christianish tells the story of one man s journey to move from the in be [...]

    8. Rating 3.5I thought this was going to be a fun quirky read with lots of pointing and laughing at things us Christians do WRONG Steele comes on hard and hardly lets up When we come at the world with haughtiness, what exactly do we believe it is breeding In short it is priming a generation to hate Christians and therefore be spiritually unprepared to receive the truth Life is observed therefore it is ministry Steele tells of his own Christian upbringing and his many failings as a christ follower H [...]

    9. I liked portions of this book and stuck it out until the end Unfortunately, I don t feel like I could recommend it to anyone The premise is good following Christ takes than words It got lost in long childhood stories, generalizations about the modern church, and worries about too much grace I believe if we truly understood the magnitude of grace we would respond in obedience We need to learn about it not be wary of it and try to do our Christian responsibility My guess is the author and I woul [...]

    10. Of all the books I ve ever recommended to my Christian friends, this one tops them all I have never felt strongly about the need for all Christ followers and those who believe they are to read this book and then run quickly to their Bibles and prayer closets It will cause some good soul searching and prayerful consideration about any number of heart areas This is good thing This is a good thing for both the individual and the church It is a critical thing, quite frankly I could spend an hour or [...]

    11. Do you follow what Jesus taught, or do you follow the ways that man has compromised and are just Christianish Mark Steele wrote a book that includes funny things he did but always shows how man has compromised to make most churches lukewarm as described in Revelation 3 He shows that going to church, carrying a Bible and doing good deeds is not what makes a person a Christian He points out that when he finds himself slipping and becoming Christianish, he goes back to check just what Jesus said.

    12. This is a great read if you are looking to evaluate where your walk with the Lord is headed It is a way to delve into what the world sees about your Christian faith and whether you are making a solid statement for Christ or a driving influence that chases people away from the savior This book makes you think about your message for the church contains Thank you, Mark Steele, for your humor that makes this makes this manual enjoyable and eye opening.

    13. Steele does an amazing job Not just a pretty cover, Christianish is funny, anecdotal and at the root PROFOUND This book challenged me and made me truly consider the way I live and portray my Christian faith This book makes the reader truly examine where they are on their faith walk, and cuts deep This book is for anyone looking to improve their relationship with Christ, and the world Bravo Steele

    14. As with most books of this genre, there were some solid sections that caused me to think and consider aspects of my walk with Christ That said, I found much of the book a bit too focused on story telling with the goal of setting up his point The stories often helped establish the author s point, but the balance felt skewed.

    15. Steele s chapters pulled me in with his anecdotes, then hit me with hard truths chapter after chapter Even when I found the pattern, I was still sucked in.I m currently living a Christianish life, but am praying for the strength and wisdom to change.

    16. Humorous, convicting and challenging An excellent and enjoyable book While there is nothing earth shatteringly new here, it is a good reminder of how I should be living, and where I have been slowly slipping.

    17. I had high hopes for this book, but after the author described a spanking session with his son that made his son so upset that he vomited, I realized I could find better advice about Christian living elsewhere.
