It's Not What You Think
It's Not What You Think: Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die | Jefferson Bethke
8 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
E-Book includes a special behind-the-scenes interview with Jefferson Bethke as he shares personal experiences and insights that inspired the writing of Its Not What You Think. New York Times best-selling author of Jesus > Religion challenges the accepted thinking of contemporary Christianity with the world-changing message Jesus actually brought. Jesus was most upset at people for seeing but not seeing. For missing it. For succumbing to the danger and idolatry of forcing God into preconceived ideals. What if there were a better way? What if Jesus came not to help people escape the world but rather to restore it? Best-selling author and spoken word artist Jefferson Bethke says that Christians have the greatest story ever told but we arent telling it. So in this new book, Bethke tells that story anew, presenting Gods truths from the Old and the New Testaments as the challenging and compelling story that it isa grand narrative with God at the center. And in doing so, Bethke reminds readers of the life-changing message of Jesus that turned the world upside-down, a world that God is putting back together.

So I just started a bible study with a couple friends. I also got two books by this author. I‘ve read his first book and have been meaning to read this one and the one he wrote with his wife. Now, I‘m not religious but I really enjoy his take on religion and the Bible.

A profound read that speaks the truth of being a follower of Christ. It doesn't matter your religious denomination or who you are or what you've done. Jeff brings awareness of Gods infinite love and mercy; and I don't know about you, but for me, such devoted love is the greatest gift of all!

Pray not to work to live, but rather live to work in the creation God gave us to make a better place in peace, love, and kindness. 🕯

What makes this man profound is not his background, money, or even fame. It is the fact that He speaks the truth of what it means being a follower of Christ no matter ones religion and no matter what one has done. #GodIsGood #DiverseReads
