- The insanity and pressure of parenting
- The rise and fall of Contemporary Christian Music
- The Amish romance novel phenomenon
- Reality television
- The Tim Tebow effect
- The statistical odds of finding your soul mate
- And a number of other topics
In the vein of writers such as David Sedaris and Dave Barry, Altrogge tackles topics with self-deprecating humor, sarcasm, and a thorough grasp of scripture. This book will cause you to laugh at yourself, laugh at others, and perhaps think a little deeper about certain subjects.
For several years now I’ve followed Stephen’s writing. There is just something about him that resonates with me. When he posted on his blog that he was looking for reviewers for his newest book – the only one I don’t already own – I jumped at the chance.
It was an odd thing, reading this particular book, it felt even more like he lived with us. Stephen’s thoughts and essays were very in tuned to conversations I’d been having with my teenager of late – except maybe the one on Amish romance. Stepehen not only brought up the good and bad on many issues but pointed us to directly how God views — or doesn’t view — the subjects. This book was the perfect reference when my son looked at me and asked does anyone else think about this stuff?
