I’m Awkward, You’re Awkward | $12.99     Get this


I’m Awkward, You’re Awkward is an unconventionally humorous and motivating book written to equip and guide Christians so that they can engage in the lives of all people and still live as authentic examples of Jesus Christ. Many believers yearn for their lives to have greater meaning, and they long to reject the status quo by involving themselves in God’s great purposes. By utilizing things like a dead prairie dog, fake ginger ale, and a false WebMD-imposed kidney stone diagnosis, I’m Awkward, You’re Awkward can help to cure a prevalent awkwardness that runs rampant among the American Christian culture, inspire Christ-followers to connect with their non-believing friends, and make you laugh all at the same time.

“In his unique, engaging, and whimsical style, Shelby Abbott offers Christians a page-turning book that can help them understand and connect with a non-believing culture while not being less than what God calls them to be.”
—Dr. Gregg Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

“Shelby has the rare ability to talk about serious things in a hilarious way. He makes you laugh, and while you’re holding your sides trying to catch a breath, he sneaks into your brain and makes you think.”
—Matt Mikalatos, author My Imaginary Jesus and Night of the Living Dead Christian
