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 poemhighlighting 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 hes 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
