Description

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Abandon dead, dry, rule-keeping and embrace the promise of being truly known and deeply loved. 

Jefferson Bethke burst into the cultural conversation in 2012 with a passionate, provocative poem titled “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus.” The 4-minute video literally became an overnight sensation, with 7 million YouTube views in its first 48 hours (and 23+ million in a year). The message blew up on social-media, triggering an avalanche of responses running the gamut from encouraged to enraged.

In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks similar contrasts that he drew in the poem—highlighting the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. With refreshing candor he delves into the motivation behind his message, beginning with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behavior.

Bethke is quick to acknowledge that he’s not a pastor or theologian, but simply a regular, twenty-something who cried out for a life greater than the one for which he had settled. Along his journey, Bethke discovered the real Jesus, who beckoned him beyond the props of false religion.

  • Changed My Life!

    By Justine Heavenridge
    Honestly, I was a "Christian" my whole life, grew up in the church. But when I read this book at 17, it changed my life completely. I finally had a relationship with Jesus rather than following rules all the time. Jeff clarified just about every question I had and I loved the questions after every chapter. AMAZING BOOK GUYS!! WORTH EVERY PENNY❤️❤️❤️

    It's difficult to find Christian authors who understand both the current cultural landscape for Christians AND the Bible. This book was particularly refreshing in that Bethke was able to address both without compromising truth.

    It really does not get any better than this. Laying it out there and talking about things each and every one of us struggle with on a daily basis. But knowing Jesus still loves us regardless, what more can you ask for.
  • Get to know who Jesus really is!

    This is an incredibly raw, refreshing and true insight into who Jesus really is and what he desires for us as HIS church! Hits the nail on the head when it comes to so many feelings, fears and prejudices of religion. A must read for all!

    I'm not a big reader...like seriously, I don't remember the last book I read and completely finished. Not even when I had to in college or high school....and this book is SOOOO good I've read it 3 times this month! Love it! It's soo real and Jeff puts this in a very understandable way. It has literally changed my life for the better. Just get it....that's all. 😉
