Book review

WEIRD : Because normal isn’t working
By Craig Groeschel
Zondervan 2011

Reviewed by Diane Busch

Do you want to be challenged to go against the flow when that is the right thing to do?  What if someone thinks you are weird for doing things differently than the majority?  Weird may be the goal, when normal is not working.  “Normal” in our society includes divorce, premarital sex, pornography, pop culture, R-rated movies, etc.  Groeschel challenges us to be weird, not normal.

Instead of making a “to do” list, make a “to don't” list.  (You can’t do everything, so make wise choices for your time based on prayer.)

Instead of making your own New Year’s resolutions, try asking a trusted friend what one New Year’s resolution they want you to work on.

In conclusion, the reader is asked to reflect on questions such as “What one thing do you desire from God?”, ‘What one thing do you lack?”, and “What one thing should you let go?”

Groeschel writes in a very easy, personal and witty manner, which makes this a pleasant read at the same time as being challenging.
