Présentation de l'éditeur

“When people describe my lifestyle or family as weird, I find comfort,” writes author Craig Groeschel. Who then shares a Christ-centered philosophy, on everything from money to scheduling to purity, to help you break out of the normal rut and live according to the rhythms of God’s grace and truth of his word. Normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are, at best, strained and, in most cases, just surviving. Even though we live in one of the most prosperous places on earth, normal is still living paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead. In our oversexed world, lust, premarital sex, guilt, and shame are far more common than purity, virginity, and a healthy married sex life. And when it comes to God, the majority believe in him, but the teachings of scripture rarely make it into their everyday lives. Simply put, normal isn’t working. Groeschel’s WEIRD views will help you break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's practical! 2 avril 2011
Par Charles H. Thompson III - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is a balanced book. Let me explain what I mean. Craig deals with situations the ordinary American believer and unbeliever faces. Things such as time management, responsible financial decisions, marriage, parenting, sexual purity, intimacy, relationship with God, and morals. He approaches the topics with personal stories, others' examples, Bible centered advice, and ways to apply the solutions to life practically. What he said about time is worth mentioning here. God gave us enough time to accomplish His will for our lives, we do not need more time. We need to handle the time we have right. The chapter on marriage stirred my heart to put more effort into my relationship with my wife. The chapter on parenting encouraged me to live Jesus before my daughter and keep an eternal perspective of her becoming Christ-like instead of achieving the world's idea of success. He said to be real with kids by being human and admitting failure. One last thought, Craig states no one starts a marriage thinking they will have an affair, but so many people do today. He shows insightfully how someone gets to the place they have an affair when they thought it could never happen. The tips to be vigilant in this area are great.

"Normal is to strive for the center of what the world lives like. Weird is to live to be in the center of God's will" p. 120

Craig Groeschel claims to be weird and he encourages his readers to be weird as well. Why? Because normal just isn't that great. In his book, Weird, Groeschel compares the norm for time management, money, relationships, sex, and values with biblical teachings in order to show that "weird" is better.

Groeschel does a very good job exposing the pitfalls of normal ways of life. I think the honest reader would readily agree. In each area, Groeschel delivers biblical insight and practical steps toward something different. Some of his advice will seem very familiar, whereas some will be more challenging. Groeschel attacks the prosperity gospel in his section on money, which may surprise many readers. He also teaches sexual purity for adults, whereas most Christian authors seem to only address this as a topic for adolescents.

However, much of the book just doesn't seem to go far enough. It loses steam. The sections on time and money are much more detailed and valuable than those on relationships and sex. In the end, I think Groeschel could have gotten his point across in a magazine article. To truly get a lot out of this topic, a series of books may have been better.

For many, this may be a good start. Perhaps it is the initial challenge to no longer consider the Christian life as synonymous with the "American Dream."

If your use of time and money has become a problem or you struggle in your relationships or with sexual sin, this book may be a good place for you to start. If you are already reading David Platt or Francis Chan, there is nothing new here.

Most people at some time feel worn out (stress), maxed out (debt), flat out (busy), this book gives practical ways to get ahead in life and live in a way that matters. I also heard the author is donating all royalties to charity... Now that is WEIRD!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! 8 janvier 2012

To say that I have been called weird in my life, is to make a very large understatement. I can be a little.....let's say, "eccentric." I'm okay with it, but there have been times in my life when the people around me were most certainly not. *shrug* What can you do to change other people?

Still, there's a little something to be said for being a little different from the mainstream. It shows your true character when you have to defend decisions, behaviors, etc., from the prying questions of those who are "normal." It helps you carve out who you really are in this great big world. Gives you gumption.

That's probably why I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Weird by Craig Groeschel takes being weird to a whole new level. He takes it beyond the style of clothes you like to wear, the foods you like to eat, the hobbies you enjoy to what's really REAL: your relationship with God.

One of the reasons that I believe so many people scoff at Christianity is because too many Christians are living their daily lives blending in to the crowd. You can't distinguish them from any unbeliever on the street. They mesh. And it is not all about physical appearance. We should be such a witness for Jesus that people stop and take notice. Not because we are standing on a street corner with a huge sign yelling at all the "heathens," or because we pass out tracts absentmindedly to the servers in restaurants, but because we actually, truly live what we preach and believe! Consistently, not just on Sunday morning or during Bible study.

Craig Groeschel takes five integral parts of human life: time, money, relationships, sex, and values and breaks them down into how these aspects of a Christian's life should be different from the rest of the world. We live IN the world, but are not OF the world, remember? Salt of the earth and all that jazz? Easy to say, hard to do.

Far from most "self-help" books that float around under the Christian living genre, this book really stood out to me. It is short of psycho-babble and full of godly counsel. I really enjoyed the down to earth way it was laid out. You felt like you were just sitting down and having a chat with a good friend, albeit a heavily spiritual chat, but a nice chat nonetheless. His advice is practical, but always related back to Scripture and I felt conviction stir within myself when I really took the time to test my life against these standards. This is a dangerous time we live in. It is easy to just go along with the flow than to cause a ripple, but how can we spread the Gospel if we don't live it?

Want to change your perspective on a few things in your own life? Then pick up this book. You won't regret it.
