The Christian Culture Survival Guide

Near me is a book that I acquired a while back titled “The Christian Culture Survival Guide”. It is not a book for non-Christians, however (though the author might try to tell you otherwise). It is a book written by a Christian to, from my understanding, other Christians on how to move away from the fundamentalist Christian culture in America and adopt a more tame [yet traditional] form of Christianity. I was all too familiar with the topics. In fact, I was quite amused. And there are some truths in the book, such as this excerpt from the introduction.

Why do we need a Christian culture survival guide?
Because it's a crazy Christian world we live in. And it keeps getting crazier.

There you have it.
Also, I've decided to make a blog post for each chapter of the book, going through the various points and comments. It's mildly entertaining, at the very least. Who knows maybe there are some valuable bits of information for the rest of us non-believers, and believers as well.
So, here's a brief title summary of what is (perhaps) to come...
