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). In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks contrasts 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. "Jeff's book will make you stop and listen to a voice in your heart that may have been drowned out by the noise of religion. Listen to that voice, then follow it - right to the feet of Jesus." - Bob Goff, author of bestselling book Love Does "You will find yourself challenged to look past prejudice, habits, and traditions and rediscover the person you fell in love with in the first place: Jesus." - Judah Smith, lead pastor of the City Church and author of bestselling book Jesus Is _____"Be prepared for a trip unlike what you'd expect. Buckle up! It will open the eyes of readers of all ages and strengthen the faith of those chasing after the greatest leader this world has ever known." - Governor Mike Huckabee, syndicated TV and radio host, and bestselling author"Thinkers and seekers and questioners - start here. Wrestle it out. You can't walk away from these provocative pages unmoved." - Ann Voskamp, author of bestselling book One Thousand Gifts
