Faith for the Filthy, Foul and Flawed
by Greg Detter
Everywhere you look, you find the cookie-cutter Christians whose nails are clean, lawns are manicured, and closets are free from skeletons. God speaks to them ever so clearly and they're never unarmed with a finely articulated prayer and a perfectly baked casserole, ready to deliver with a caring smile and a twinkle in the eye.
But what about the rest of us? What about those of us who battle a foul mouth or a short temper, too flawed to really be loved… whose minds wander during the sermon and who can't kick those negative thoughts out of our minds? What about those of us who don't understand all of Christianity's complicated issues and struggle to make sense of life's delicate problems?
We're out here and we're not alone. And God loves us all just the same. Faith for the Filthy, Foul and Flawed is for the unwashed masses, who can't quite identify with the typical TV Christian. This is a funny, inspirational journey for the Christian with questions and those who simply can't imagine a God willing to love and forgive them for their many missteps.
