BADCHRISTIAN, GREATSAVIOR--written by rockers Matt Carter and Toby Morrell of Emery, and Pastor Joey Svendsen--reveals intimate details of the author's lives and discusses problems within today's Christian society. They expose their own struggles with sexual sin, depression, betrayal, anger, and alcohol abuse. All the while, they lived a second life: attending church, leading worship, and appearing to be as "good" as possible. More than 1,500 pre-sale copies of the book have been sold. BADCHRISTIAN, GREATSAVIOR's publishing was crowd-funded by BADCHRISTIAN's fans and tripled its funding goal.

"This is not a book of Theology," reads the book. "This is not Christian Inspiration. This is Matt, Toby, and Joey telling it like they see it; that you are worse than you think you are, and Jesus is better than you think He is."
The authors also challenge the modern church and identify failures that plague today's Christians. BADCHRISTIAN, GREATSAVIOR suggests that the church is playing it safe by allowing the real sin Christians struggle with to remain "private" and hidden. BADCHRISTIAN aims to move Christian conversations beyond the topics of parenting and coffee, and move on to the things that bring glory to God when we live more transparent, honest, and open lives.
"If the crux of life is based upon Him and the cross, can we just sit in an air-conditioned room once a week and then live the rest of our lives separate from each other in our own tiny kingdom?" -- BADCHRISTIAN, GREATSAVIOR excerpt
