"In this highly effective spoof of Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Fabry hits the ground running with his dedication page. 'An ineffective Christian,' he writes, 'never remembers to thank anyone. Might as well learn that before you begin this book.' With rapier wit, Fabry (Spiritually Correct Bedtime Stories) explores the various ways of being an ineffective Christian. He includes chapters on shunning pain, guiding others with guilt, walking by sight and not by faith, living an unexamined life and holding grudges. In addition, Fabry helps readers achieve ineffectiveness by singling out particularly instructive Bible verses to avoid. Covering all aspects of evangelical Christian discipleship, Fabry offers, via the technique of negative example, an uproariously funny and thought-provoking study of how to live the Christian life in the modern world."

"Chris has a good wit and keen insight—sometimes a little too keen."
— Larry Burkett

"The gems of joy and spiritual nuggets in this book are indeed encouraging words."
— Barbara Johnson

"Once again, Chris has 'wounded us from behind for edification.' I found myself snickering at the spiritual shortcomings of others and then, all at once, realizing that I was laughing at myself."
— Michael Card
