I recently read “I became a Christian and all I got was this lousy t-shirt” by Vince Antonucci. I was very impressed with his ability to identify with the frustrations of most Christians. Whether it be they are board, annoyed, or unable to shake the things in their closet Antonucci will give some practical advice. His main point is everyone is called to live a life with Jesus and to live out a life of Jesus. He states this happens when we abide and abound in Christ. One of the last chapters is entitled questions in which Antonucci peppers you (the reader) with reflection questions to hopefully move you out of cruise control. At times he goes over board with trying to make a joke or humorous reference but it is usually about then that you find yourself laughing out loud. I recommend this book to anyone looking for more in their faith.
