                                   Jesus is Greater than Religion by Jefferson Bethke

(From back cover):   Jefferson Bethke burst into the cultural conversation in 2012 with a passionate, provocative poem title "Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus." This 4-minute video literally became an overnight sensation, with 7 million YouTube views in its first 48 hours (and 23+ million in a year.)

In Jesus>Religion, Bethke unpack contrast similar to those he drew in the poem---highlighting the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope.


I have recently just finished reading Jesus>Religion, and it was amazing. Jeff Bethke opens the doors and shows us the difference between religion, and a Christ filled relationship. The author shows us that we as Christians have been continually pointing to things, and saying they are bad, when in reality it might not be. Jeff Bethke writes in a way that is like a friend offering advice. One of my favorite things he says in his book is, "I saw that the church wasn't a place for good people; it was a hospital for the broken." Jesus>Religion helped point out many different things to me, and I will definitely not forget them!
-I definitely would suggest this book.-
