What Would Jesus Craft?

30 Simple Projects for Making a Blessed Home

Ross MacDonald

Flatiron Books


What Would Jesus Craft? is a hilarious take on a Sunday school's craft book, featuring 30 simple projects that are all made from commonly found items like popsicle sticks, glitter, yarn, and pipe cleaners.

Projects include items for your home, pets, and family and author Ross MacDonald provides clear step-by-step photographs. Now you can finally complete your wardrobe with a "Fedora of Thorns" and "Jesus Jean Jacket" with Christ Almighty emblazoned on your back; your pets will be blessed and protected when they sport a "Be Not Afraid St. Francis Pet Collar" dripping with St. Francis charms and a crucifix; and the light of the Lord will bless every inch of your home with "Let There Be Light Switches," an "Eye-See-You-in-Hell Mirror," a "Time to Obey the Lord Clock," and much, much more!

Praise for What Would Jesus Craft?

"For Christians with a sense of humor, What Would Jesus Craft? is a gift from the heavens...[it] walks that straight and narrow path between blasphemy and hilarity.... MacDonald has an inspired eye for capturing America's weird blend of holiness and kitsch." —Ron Charles, The Washington Post

"Reverence meets irreverence.... MacDonald’s sense of humor shines with projects that poke fun at the clash between popular culture and religion.... Though the easy comparison is to Amy Sedaris, MacDonald’s incisive humor puts him in the same wheelhouse as Penn Jillette and other comedians who poke fun at religion." —Library Journal
