I’m a Christian and in no way am I trying to impose my views and beliefs on anyone…
I came across this book and I feel the need to share it.

I want to share it.IMG_1051 (1)

I’m not one to read Christian books (I mean, I try but I never get past 10 pages)
This book was a gift and maybe that’s why I read it (so I don’t seem ungrateful)
or maybe I wanted to actually read it so I could argue right back but,
“Jesus is Greater than Religion” is GOLD.

I won’t deny it.
I was in defence mode when I started reading it.
From the first page, I was already like.
“Nope”, “No”, “that’s not true”.
Ready to call my friend up and argue.
(smh, typical me)

My version is full of highlights and comments.

Gradually it all made perfect sense.
It was all true and after every chapter, you get discussion questions and this time, I was truthful with myself and only then did I realise that I was no different from the cast the author was referring to.

It’s an amazing book and Jesus is indeed greater than religion.
I just finished reading the book and below are some of the key highlights and learning points I drew from it.
I couldn’t write it all here but I urge you to buy the book.
It’s amazing and just like me, maybe your perspective will change.
Maybe you already know it all.

Jesus did not die for a religion,
He died for a relationship.

I’m a Christian and in no way am I trying to impose my views and beliefs on anyone…

This chapter talks about how Christians twist and tweak verses in the bible to suit them.

  1. I love books which you want to highlight and have a debate with the author about, even if you don’t necessarily agree with the message. I read a book recently called The Establishment And How They Get Away With It by Owen Jones which was very similar.

    I would be very careful with assertions like “it’s all true”, though – true for you maybe but not for everyone. For many people, myself included, there is no such thing as objective truth. It would be fairer for you to say that you started to identify more and more with the author’s argument.

    1. Hey Russell! I couldn’t agree more about reading a book and having the urge to debate with the author. Haha. I’ll keep an eye out for that book 🙂
      And thank you! You make a very valid point regarding “truth”
      Is it too late to edit and change my write up? Hehe.
      I’ll take note for next time.

      Thank you!

  2. Good review! I always enjoy thought-provoking christian books and this seems like one of them. My favorite one so far is ‘I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist.’ by Norman L. Geisler. Its an apologetics book, a bit controversial but definitely worth reading. Meanwhile, gonna keep an eye out for this one. Thanks Feyi.
