My book gets people talking. If you haven’t noticed, I want to do whatever I can to help people connect with and dialogue about God. I wrote a book filled with all my failings and misgivings and gave it an outrageous title in order to facilitate that. Here is what someone down-under (Australia) mentioned about my book. If you go to the link direct you can join the comments. There are about 70 so far.

Jason T. Berggren is a man of faith who is not crazy about Christianity. He received a stack of hate mail after recently publishing his book 10 Things I Hate About Christianity.

In the book, Berggren, a former pastor and heavy metal rocker, admits that Christian faith may look ludicrous to non-Christians. He attacks the silly rituals and hypocrisy that sometimes accompany Christian faith.

He asks the questions that confront many believers – why can’t we own up to the fact that people struggle with concepts such as prayer, sin, hell and going to church? And why our problems don’t get any easier because we pray or go to church? Why do we have to love everyone? Why does it all seem so hard?

“Faith will not solve every problem,” he says. “It won’t fix all your acne and help you get a really pretty girlfriend.’’
