I haven’t finished it so far, but the author provides a devotional in the framework of different ways in which we Christians act like atheists.
Each chapter focuses on one area Christians can act like atheists. The framework is engaging, and the author also provides a strong dose of laugh-out-loud humorous anecdotes, making it a funny and engaging read as well as a devotional chalk full of biblical depth and practical application.

Lists with This Book. Mar 21, Greg rated it did not like it Shelves: Craig hearts God, hanging out at the gym, and agheist desperately to launch himself into the stratosphere of Christian High-Living, into the deluxe apartment in the sky that the Christian Superstars like Chapman, Cloud, Olsteen, O’Martin and Warren reside in.
The Christian writers who were able to come up with a catchphrase or title and just milk the shit out that bitch for all that it’s worth. I suspected this when I first saw this book I thought this is stupid, he’s just trying to make some money on a flimsy half catchy phrase he thought up.
This is a must-read for every Christian.

But then one remembers that book blurbers love inserting the title of the book into their blurbs and all goes back to normal, doubts disappear. Apparently Craig Groeschel was once a Christian Atheist, which is shocking because just look at those pictures that man looks like he loves god with his whole body, including his tightly clenched rectum. Is it possible that he was faking it in those pictures? I don’t know when he was faking it, but according to him he was. Now why would a Pastor who is the chrishian equivalent of fast-food see his bio, he’s like a motherfucking franchiser of religion, the bio on his groesche even includes a weekly viewer number that sounds more like a customers served keep on preaching about a God that he knows this subject first hand and I quote from his webpage: No, it inspired him to come up with a new catch phrase and move in on christiam in even more.
It makes me ask, was groeschsl really a christian when he wrote the book about getting read with god? Confessions of a Pastor: Adventures in Dropping the Pose and Getting Real with God If he wasn’t all real with God, and more importantly with the people who he was fleecing curistian their money, because seriously when you are a pastor who performs like some sell-out rock star in arena sized venues on stages that look more like Warrant should be performing than Jesus being worshiped you know it’s all about the money, or the benjamins as sell-outs of a different genre of music would say.
I was going to write this review atheust how stupid the term Christian Atheist is, and about how what an idiot this dude is for believing that people who go to church could be considered Atheists, but that is too simple and I’m sure anyone with a first grade education could figure out how retarded the title christuan this book is.
Nope, it’s been much more fun to accuse him of stealing!!! Stealing like a common Con-man. A huckster of snake-oil. You have stolen by continuing to take peoples money in your Ponzi scheme of faith; Commandment number 3, Thou shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God: That’s right you dirty fucker you care more about money because you never stopped your move to continue inhaling it like some vacuum cleaner dhristian an off craiv.
If you are being honest in this book it means you are a thief in the past, if you are laying in this book it means you are a thief now, and in either case you are using religion as a means to make yourself rich. Craig Groeschel, you suck. View all comments.
Jun 08, Holmes rated it really liked it. This book cuts through my thick feel-good hide and leaves me out to bleed – every drop of guilty blood, guilty of feeling like a Christian but not acting like one.
I suspect many are like me: Why do I pursue happiness as if it is the real god? Why This book cuts through my thick feel-good hide and leaves me out to bleed – every drop of guilty blood, guilty of feeling like a Christian but not acting like one.
Why am I so hesitant to share with others my faith – especially with the ones I care most about? Why do I honestly believe in an omnipotent God but somehow doubt that He can change me?
The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living As If He Doesn’t Exist by Craig Groeschel
Why am I reluctant to go to church when I myself can be part of the church, because Jesus says, “where afheist or three gather in my name, there am I with them” Matthew If you’re like me, this book will read like a thousand knives piercing your heart.
It’s painful, but it’s good, because you can still feel the pain. To heal the pain, the only way is to get moving. Stop thinking about actions; stop talking about actions, start taking those actions.
Dec 28, Cody rated it it was ok. I don’t disagree with most of what Groeschel has to say, but this book was very disappointing. Instead of addressing the topic in an insightful way, this book reads like any other self help book with verses from the Bible and Christian themes thrown in every so often.
I can’t stand the way these kinds of books are written. They christain the same structure chapter after chapter, starting with a story, then moving on to some kind of lesson, then failing to live up to that lesson, then another story, I don’t disagree with most of what Groeschel has to say, but this book was very disappointing.
They follow the same structure chapter after chapter, starting with a story, then moving on to some kind of lesson, then failing to live christan to that lesson, then another story, and then you arrive at some kind of final understanding told in lame, christian jargon. I equate these kind of books to “Christian Music” scene. While the words aren’t necessarily wrong and may be uplifting, they tend to be generic, boring, and have that corporately produced feeling that I can’t stand.
It took me a little while to appreciate how helpful “The Christian Athiest” by Craig Groeschel would be. At first it seemed like a straight forward groewchel on common themes: Groeschel asserts that while we may very well be Christians we often conduct our lives and especially our inadequacies as if we were athiests. The standout here is that Groeschel openly shares some of his biggest atheisf. I immediately wanted to embrace his advice bec It took me a little while to appreciate how helpful “The Christian Athiest” by Craig Groeschel would be.
I immediately wanted to embrace his advice because throughout the book he indicated that he had made many mistakes and many of them were mistakes I had made or could relate to. To then see the times he was able to put his faith into practice and the dramatic outcome especially with regard to forgiving someone who had grievously harmed his little sisterI was inspired to change the areas in my life where I live like an athiest rather than trust God to change not only circumstances but ME!
This is a book I could easily read again in order to absorb each chapter and remind myself that ” And he is able.
Jan 27, Kathleen Fuller rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was interesting–on the surface there was nothing new presented as far as the gospel and living a Christian life. But it is one of the most challenging books I’ve ever read.
I didn’t realize it, but I’m a Christian atheist and working to change that. Through the whole book I was nodding my head and saying “that’s me, that’s me, that’s me”. And I’m not happy about that. What I found most helpful though were the personal stories, or rather failures and confessions, by the author who is This book was interesting–on the surface there was nothing new presented as far as the gospel and living a Christian life.
What I found most helpful though were the personal stories, or rather failures and confessions, by the author who is a prominent pastor. Because while I was saying “that’s me” I was comforted in knowing that “I’m not alone”. This is a great book that might be dismissed because of lack of theological depth, but should be read by every Christian crwig ever wondered or even thought that they are truly living for God.
Maybe goreschel spiritual life needs a tune up. Or, like me, it needs a complete overhaul. Mar 08, Hope Miller rated it really liked it. Feb 18, Mark rated it it was amazing. Another really good book by Craig Groeschel.
We are all sinners but we are still part of the body of Christ. Our past cannot define us. You have a bigger role in the Church than you think you do.
Uninhibited stories from his life, bible stories atehist relate, and ideas for that part of your life are found in each chapter. Everyone has a past but it cannot define us. I would recommend this book to everyone. Jun 05, Panda Incognito rated it it was ok Shelves: Although this book did an adequate job of pointing out the differences between genuine Christians and “believers” who have not truly experienced God, it fell short of facilitating genuine heart-change.
Since the book was targeted towards nominal Christians, I tried to read it with that mindset, taking in the parts aheist applied to me, but mostly thinking through it theoretically. The further I got into the book, the more I sensed that something was missing: Though the author explained Although this book did an adequate job of pointing out the differences between genuine Christians and “believers” who have not truly experienced God, it fell short of facilitating genuine heart-change.
