Jesus > Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough

After viewing this video when it came out on YouTube, I was hooked. So much resonated with me.

The words that were spoken were so easy to relate to and connect with, as a young person, as a Christian, as a writer, as so many things. Since that moment, I had been hoping and waiting for Jeff to release a book. No way.

See a Problem?

I knew there was more behind that poem. We all did. Hence the 25 million plus views. We all wanted and needed more.

I was elated when I saw advanced copies at Book Expo America BEA this past May and have since underlined something on just about every page of the book. Me and my annotations.

6-Session Study by Jefferson Bethke

Anyway… I love this book. Everything about it.

Why do Christians focus more on supposed acts of righteousness than the needs of others? How is the Jesus portrayed in the gospels different from the Jesus promoted by religion? Why or why not?

Was it helpful to use that particular word? By denouncing religion, was Bethke giving people an excuse to ditch commitment, church and holy living?

Was Jesus really against religion, or rather just a certain form of religion? Is that problematic? Thankfully and unsurprisingly Bethke takes the space a book allows to add the all-important nuance.

In that sense, the cap certainly fits in many cases. Admittedly the last few chapters did feel slightly convoluted. His tone is engaging and personable, and he has an uncanny ability to quickly cut to the heart.

It informally exposes unhelpful stereotypes of Christianity. It gets grace on the table.

'Jesus > Religion' – a Review

And so for these, I commend it.No one is past grace. Name required.

I read a section of it in class the other day and they really were engaged. This book is powerful, and inspiring. My heart broke over this book.

Book Review: Jesus > Religion by Jefferson Bethke

He puts a lot of personal stories even stories abou I was heavily involved with college ministry when Jeff's video was first released. But again, he falls into the trap which most non-denoms fall into, that being: Is that problematic?

Also, I felt a little frustrated by the fact that he uses the word religion without ever really defining it.
