Keep Christianity Weird

Embrace the Discipline of Being Different

Many Christians have become comfortable letting the world mold them instead of being set apart by God. And many churches have traded in their biblical roots for complacent conventionality. But Jesus and the church are anything but conventional. The hallmark of our faith is that it sees the world differently than the world sees itself.

So resist the allure of acceptability. Get back to the unsafe roots of our faith. Be equipped to surprise the world with the Good News it didn’t even know it was waiting for. Challenge the way things are by living a life that has been truly set free by Christ.

Jesus Is Different. Go and Do Likewise.

This book will help you be more weird. But take heart, you’re in great company! Throughout history God has raised up people to challenge and inspire the church from becoming molded in the image of the world around us. We are called to be unique, as individuals, and together as a body. Don’t trade your God-given mandate to be different for comfortable conventionality.

Mike Frost is one of the sharpest thinkers we’ve got. I don’t just mean that he’s clever (he is), but that his ideas cut through nonsense with prophetic clarity. And so, of course, this book does just that. Large swaths of the Western church are in dire danger of cultural assimilation at the precise time that our wider culture is looking for new ideas and alternative answers. Thank God, then, for Mike’s message, which calls us back to the glorious weirdness of the gospel.

Michael Frost reminds us with winsome prose and challenging clarity that if our neighbors don’t see us living out our Christian faith together as alternative story, something has gone horribly wrong. Read this book and ignore the noise of conformity. If we do, the best days of the local church are just ahead of us.

Church planter, teaching pastor, author of Overcomer and The Louder Song
Every bit as culturally relevant as it is countercultural, Keep Christianity Weird is a wake-up call to church planters, pastors, and the entire church body. Michael Frost calls us away from a generic, domesticated, deistic gospel and back into a wild, incarnate, neighborhood-focused, authentically weird, attractive Christianity—which looks, oddly enough, just like Jesus and his Kingdom come.

Founding editor of The Englewood Review of Books and coauthor of the award-winning book Slow Church
Following the apostle Paul’s advice to the Roman church, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world,” Michael Frost offers us a poignant meditation on the weirdness of our Christian faith. Keep Christianity Weird is the irresistible sort of book that I will read and reread to remind myself what it means to follow in the way of Jesus and in the footsteps of the faithful cloud of witnesses that have gone before us.

I always look forward to the writings of Michael Frost. When I saw this book’s title, Keep Christianity Weird, I chuckled because I live and minister in the Portland metro area, so I knew the reference well. This book does not disappoint. With Michael’s usual mix of biblical and historical wisdom, cultural exegesis, and a keen wit, Michael invites us to be God’s peculiar people in the best possible ways.

Michael Frost invites us to open our eyes to the way of the Master and to reimagine what it means to be the people of God in our time. He looks at Jesus (the original weirdo) and numerous biblical and historical figures whose unusual ways of relating to the world around them reflected the Kingdom of God and brought about miraculous change. Michael reminds us of things we may have forgotten. Hold on tight.
