In The Bad Christian's Manifesto, Dave Tomlinson puts into practice all those obvious and simple ideas he set out in How To Be A Bad Christian... But A Better Human Being. These are ideas so obvious and simple that they’ve completely evaded most church going Christians for the best part of 2000 years. So you don’t have to feel bad if you missed them too.
Dave Tomlinson explains what it means to live well and die happy from an unapologetically generous and Jesus-centred point of view. He takes into account all of our virtues and vices, friendships, morality and mortality as well as the sacred aspects of anything from chocolate to cigars.
This is not another just-for-laughs irreverent tilt at established beliefs and practices. Rather it’s a serious attempt to rediscover that natural reverence in the ordinary things of life and not to lose it by overcomplicating the simple faith, with its simple response to need, that Jesus taught.
The Bad Christian's Manifesto is a timely reminder that even after a lifetime of seeking to know God better, the most important for any Christian is to realise that you are never lost to God. God is everywhere, named or unnamed, recognised or unrecognised.
This book will change the way you think about God – and the way you live your life.
‘Dave articulates a way of being faithful that puts a smile on my face a dance my step and hope in my heart.’ - Brian McLaren.
The Bad Christian's Manifesto by Dave Tomlinson was published by Hodder & Stoughton in September 2014 and is our 496th best seller. The ISBN for The Bad Christian's Manifesto is 9781444752250.
As brilliant, fun and insightful as his first Bad Christian book.
This book is powerful because it is real and digs past the obvious gloss of being a Christian and going to church, it begs us to face up to the reality of who and what we are at heart and mind, and asks us to question what we should be doing as real Christians with all our truth … and doubts… hanging out there for everyone to see.
In a way he shows that being a bad Christian with all our idiosyncacies and less than stellar performances of love and compassion are where real faith is, where we really encounter and experience God, where we wrestle with angels and reflect Gods glory.
God does not want perfect people he wants real people, people that live fully with compassion, mercy, love and acceptance—even if they don’t get it perfect. A wonderful manifesto and a book so many need to read and pass around.
The Bad Christian's Manifesto Review
Posted: Tuesday, July 21st
The Bad Christian's Manifesto continues the conversation, unpacking what spiritual intelligence - from an unapologetically Christian viewpoint - might look like for all the self-confessed bad Christians of the world.
Join Dave as he explores how to befriend your inner sceptic, make a virtue of pleasure and find heaven in the ordinary things of life.
