Christianity is messy. Unanswered prayers. Painful choices. Unresolved regrets. But there is good news: God works in the mess. He gets a kick out of these disturbing, disorderly moments because in these moments, we learn to trust Him. What if we all trusted Jesus? How would the world look different? How would we look different?

Both annoyingly honest and refreshingly humorous, Messy reassures Christians that God can reveal Himself in their clutter. Author and pastor A.J. Swoboda offers biblical insight and vivid, personal stories to redefine faith from something that must be perfect to something that is imperfect, but can still give beauty, meaning, and purpose to a messy life. As entertaining as it is challenging, this book teaches Christians what it means to trust in each other, in grace, in hope, and in a Savior who defied the rules of death. Here’s to finding joy in your chaos!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy it because it Begs to be Re-read 30. März 2012
Von MissErin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Messy: God Likes it That Way is easily one of the most worth-while and helpful books I have read in quite some time. Swoboda's witty wisdom is easy to read but demands serious rumination. The book is accessible, relevant, simultaneously convicting about how to make positive life-changes and comforting in that I'm not the only messed-up one, and (bonus!) hilariously written. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of faith and walking with God; I found myself easily identifying with moments from each chapter even upon the first reading. However, having read it once, I fully anticipate referring back to Messy as my life continues to present its varying conundrums and seasons. I suggest reading it with a pen because I enjoyed using my copy like a journal- it's really that good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book, buy it now 31. März 2012
Von Joshua Tyler Nice - Veröffentlicht auf
Many people are witty. Many people are wise. Too few people are both. AJ Swoboda's book was really humorous and profound at the same time. I really appreciated his thoughts on Christianity. I couldn't put the book down.
A really liked his chapter on theology. Coming from a guy who has a PhD in theology, it was refreshing to read him say that theology is only beneficial when it leads us to Christ.
The overall message of Swoboda's book is that life is full of imperfect, hurting, broken people. And, that he believes in a God who is at work in their pain. Many people have provided many attempts to answer the questions of life's ills in the world. Some of the answers feel better than others. This book felt like an authentic way of looking at the pain in people's life. When I put this book down, I felt I had read some really fair approaches to many of life's biggest questions.
If you take the time to read this book, I think you will find it thought provoking and interesting. Definitely funny. Which I always appreciate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 5. Mai 2012
Von Grahm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Don't read Messy if you are looking for answers.

Or do read it if you are looking for answers -- as many will, as I did to an extent -- but don't be disappointed when you don't find them, or when they're incomplete, or when they're different than what you expected. Instead, revel in Messy's overarching theme: that following Jesus is often both difficult and confusing. If that statement comforts you, you should read this book. If it upsets you, read the book. Because it's true: church is messed up, the Bible is confusing, relationships are difficult, Christians are hypocritical. It's all a lot messier than most of us were led to believe. But there's good news, and it's news that this book shouts: that God gave up his deity and sacrificed himself to rescue the messed up, the confused, the difficult, the hypocrite. Maybe once we realize how transient everything else is -- how our theology is always changing, how Christian fads grow and then wilt with the seasons, how we don't have adequate enough words or brains to even begin to comprehend our God -- we can focus on the significance of God's love for us. The questions remain important, but they no longer hinder us.

With that in mind I'll rescind my opening statement: Go ahead and read Messy if you are looking to answers. You'll find some, but I think you'll find something even better: a renewed desire to focus on the important stuff -- love God, and love the people he made (see also: everyone). Get that right and the mess starts to matter less. That's what Messy argues, and it's a cogent argument. Read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fresh perspective on the Gospel 6. April 2012
Von Louie Hogan - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is incredibly valuable to anyone looking for why Christianity seems cluttered, chaotic and crippled and how we each get to be completely part of that. Undoubtably a page turner, Messy: God Likes It That Way will constantly keep you asking yourself how you see the Church and how much does that conception line up with the Gospel. It brings the truth, the gentleness, the intrusiveness, and the craziness of the Gospel under a 21 century light, helping the reader to really consider if they way we live the Gospel now is the way it's meant to be lived. Often hitting incredibly close to home for me, this book is a perfect read for anyone asking the "Why's" about God and perfectly, delicately, and insightfully leaves the reader still asking. It's a messy book in a messy world about a God who has things pretty well together.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Humor, Originality, GOOD ideas about Life 7. April 2012
Von Geni J. White - Veröffentlicht auf
God Likes It That Way
AJ Swoboda ©2012
Kregel Publications
ISBN 978-0-8254-4168-4
179 pp plus Bibliography (ppbk.)

A.J. Swoboda, our church's former College Ministry Pastor, with a PhD in Theology, always draws large audiences when he speaks, partly because of his unintentional humor and because of his creative understanding and ideas about God. His writing is equally alluring.

His thesis in Messy, God Likes It That Way is that we can understand messed up lives because God understands and still cares about us deeply. A.J. writes about messed up people in the Bible, messy churches, prayers and families. He has chapters on messy sin, sex and relationships. He also says suffering is messy (hard to comprehend and deal with, often) as is much of theology and life.

Like with A.J.'s sermons, readers will be blessed by this book.
