A pithy collection of the best of Carl Trueman’s articles on culture and the church. A compelling, challenging, and sometimes uproarious look at how the world and the church intersect.

Like Luther before him, Trueman understands the power of humor because he understands the absurdity of human self-regard in the context of the fallen world. And like Luther, Trueman shows no mercy, either to his enemies or to himself. His writings are an oasis of welcome wit in what can so often seem like a desert of Protestant pomposity.


“Carl Trueman is at his brilliant, provocative, hysterical best. Reading Trueman is always enlightening and always an event. . . . These chapters will edify, entertain, and occasionally infuriate. What more could one ask for in a book?”

—Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

“Though he might not take himself too seriously, Carl Trueman takes the gospel very seriously in this wonderful little book. Trueman offers laugh-out-loud, insightful commentary on theology, culture, the church, and the Christian life. His rapier wit cuts through absurdity and bad theology like a hot knife through butter.”

—J. V. Fesko, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Westminster Seminary California
