I just finished Vince Antonucci's book - "I became a Christian and all I got was this lousy t-shirt." This book came my way via a friend and admittedly I wasn't sure what to expect. I've heard Vince preach and I've read his blog so I wasn't totally in the dark. Yet, the title still peaked my curiosity. I won't explain it because it might spoil your interest in reading this book & I'd suggest that you do. It's a fast read and Antonucci serves up lots of great anecdotes and plenty of quick witted humor. You won't be "James Bored" (p. 170) while reading. If you are always looking for great stories then book is well worth $13! But it's much more than just sermon illustrations. I was especially impressed with his challenge to "abide in Jesus." It resonated deeply with me. There's is much here in the way of clear thinking from a brother who gets it and is trying to get others to get it too! My favorite chapter was on "Mission." Antonucci won't be confusd with Cottrell or MacArthur, but there is plenty of room in the kingdom for real life books by guys like Vince Antonucci - books thast inspire, encourage & motivate.
(I did appreciate his Whatcha' Talkin 'Bout Wills? reference on Page 13.)
