Publisher's 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.

Author Bio

Jefferson Bethke is the author of New York Times bestseller Jesus > Religion. Bethke’s message connects at a heart level with an audience ranging from atheists to nationally recognized religious leaders. He lives in Maui, Hawaii.

    I would recommend this to the those who are struggling with faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is better. He is the one we worship not "the church".

    He does a good job of describing the differences between religion and Jesus and how/why to focus on Jesus. He also gives a good description of what we should consider to be a church. It would certainly be good reading for someone who makes the claim that they are a Christian based on the perspective that he describes in this book.

    This book is a great read for anyone at any stage of their walk with Christ. I think that book is even better for a non believer who may struggle with accepting Christ because of how the 21st Century church and the media has painted Christianity out to be. Great book.
