The founders of The Babylon Bee, a widely popular Christian website known for its satirical take on Christian culture, have signed an agreement with Multnomah, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, to publish How to Be a Perfect Christian: Your Comprehensive Guide to Flawless Spiritual Livingreleasing May 1, 2018.

Kendall Davis, Associate Editor at WaterBrook and Multnomah, acquired world rights to the work in print and digital formats from Andrew Wolgemuth of Wolgemuth & Associates.

“The Babylon Bee offers a refreshing and hilarious take on modern, American Christianity,” says Davis. “Getting to partner with the witty, whip-smart team at the Bee is an editorial dream, and we’re so excited to put this funny and important book into the marketplace.”

Originally launched in March 2016, The Babylon Bee has quickly grown to be a favored source of humor for Christians with more than 400,000 social media followers and over 45 million page views in its first year. The site humorously satirizes cultural Christianity in the format of satirical news articles as a means of calling readers back to a more biblically rooted understanding of their faith.

Available for pre-order, How to Be a Perfect Christian will expand on this popular humor through chapters on specific aspects of Western Christianity, covering topics such as looking spiritual online and finding the perfect church. Readers will find the familiar dry, relatable style of the website expanded into essay-style chapters. The trademark voice of The Bee invites readers to laugh at the idiosyncrasies of the modern Christian experience while challenging them to consider problematic aspects of their own faith.

Your Secret Name

March 8, 2010 — Leave a comment

My friend Kary Oberbrunner has a new book coming out called “Your Secret Name.”

We all have one–a Secret Name that is. The Bible tells us so. Yet few of us know ours. Ignorantly, we’re stuck, caught up in the ‘Name Game.’ Using the story of the biblical patriarch Jacob as a backdrop, author Kary Oberbrunner calls us to stop accepting the world’s labels and start wrestling with God to discover our true identity. Jacob spent years living out the meaning of his earthly name: ‘deceiver.’ Caught up in pretending to be someone he wasn’t, he was unaware that God would build a nation through him, unaware that Jesus would be one of his descendents, unaware of the lands he would inherit. Then he heard God speak his true name and the future God had for him unfolded. Oberbrunner reminds us that we’ll be unable to discern what God wants to build through us until we discover how God has seen us all along. In Your Secret Name, readers will find the courage to abandon what they know in order to become who they were born to be.
