Reviews - What do customers think about Flashbang: How I Got Over Myself?

Wowzers  Jun 15, 2006
An awesome read... a must for anyone who wants to challenge their faith and grow. Taking the pain and living it, finding God in it. In getting over oneself. Unfortunately, it happens with hindsight... and I'm not there yet...
Cute . . . Review Haiku  May 7, 2006
Flashbang. Funny guy.

Good start. Where do we go now?

Loud noise but no point.
Pee your pants good  May 3, 2006
This book was incredible. I can be quite picky about some of these new Christian auto biographys that are just "this is why Christianity is hard for me...I'm being real and vulnerable...I am lion...hear me roar." This book however, was real in content, lasting in impression, and fully captivating. The way Mark pulls his story lines together to create the point and thought process that he wants to stick with the reader is unlike anything I have ever read. His writing method definitly breaks the mold and maybe I just have an odd sense of humor, but I can honestly say that while reading it on an airplane in between two business men reading the DaVinci code and Business Weekly, I had to physically close the book at page five due to uncontroled bodily sounds as I was shaking violently. I had the church giggles, no doubt about it. Read this book. Be entertained, and be challenged.

If you're looking for a genuine image of Christianity played out in real life, here's one. Steele doesn't try to hide his humanity but offers often hilarious glimpses into his life, inspiring us to make a difference--to leave teeth marks--all over this space and time that we've been given.
LOL FOF Spiritual Humor  Mar 27, 2006
This is a hillarious book full of personal anecdotes by a truly funny man. And the vulnerable parts are so poignant, they make the book worth reading. If you don't believe me, read his review of his own book!
