About this item


Book Synopsis

Thriving stand-up comic and actress Yvonne Orji--best known as Issa Rae's BFF on the HBO series, Insecure--shares the secrets to living the life of your dreams.

Yvonne Orji has never shied away from being unapologetically herself, and that includes being outspoken about her faith. Known for interpreting Biblical stories and metaphors to fit current times, her humorous and accessible approach to faith leaves even non-believers inspired and wanting more.

The way Yvonne sees it, God is a Sovereign Prankster, punking folks long before Ashton Kutcher made it cool. When she meditates on her own life--complete with unforeseen blessings and unanticipated roadblocks--she realizes it's one big testimony to how God tricked her into living out her wildest dreams. And she wants us to join in on getting bamboozled. This is not a Self-Help book--it's a Get Yours book!

In Bamboozled by Jesus, a frank and fresh advice book, Orji takes readers on a journey through twenty-five life lessons, gleaned from her own experiences and her favorite source of inspiration: the Bible. But this ain't your mama's Bible study. Yvonne infuses wit and heart in sharing pointers like why the way up is sometimes down, and how fear is synonymous to food poisoning. Her joyful, confident approach to God will inspire everyone to catapult themselves out of the mundane and into the magnificent.

With bold authenticity and practical relatability, Orji is exactly the kind of cultural leader we need in these chaotic times. And her journey through being Bamboozled by Jesus paints a powerful picture of what it means to say "yes" to a life you never could've imagined--if it wasn't your own.

Review Quotes

"Not only is Yvonne really funny and smart, she brings a fresh new perspective to every story she tells. She is an absolute master, and an original voice that needs to be heard now more than ever. Once you let her in your mind, you'll never want her to leave."

--Chris Rock, actor & comedian

"Whether it's as an actress, comedian or thought-leader, Yvonne has always given a fresh perspective and authentic storytelling. Bamboozled is a culmination of the characteristics that make her so special: sharp wit, fierce intelligence and an unapologetic sense of self."

--Rachel Hollis, author & speaker

"Inspiration practically leaps off the pages and into the hearts of readers--the writing is engaging and the comedic timing is absolute gold. Orji is a cheerleader and best friend for every dreamer."--LaParis Hawkins, Booklist

"Yvonne somehow found a way to brilliantly weave her humor, insight, courage, and faith into pages that feel like a weekend retreat hanging with your best, boldest, brightest and most blessed girlfriend. Bamboozled by Jesus is real talk about deep faith put in practice from a woman committed to living a life of vision, purpose, service and success."
--Kerry Washington, actress, producer, & director

"A delightful debut... Orji's boundless enthusiasm will appeal to her fans and newcomers alike."--Publishers Weekly

When I tell you, I have NEVER read a book where I feel so seen.😳 This book is better than any self-help book I have ever read. @yvonneorji did her thing with this one Thearpy in black and white. The "Why" is between the pages 🙌🏾 #BamboozledByJesus

I love Yvonne Orji and have loved her live comedy show that I was able to attend so I was very excited about this book but ended up feeling disappointed by it. I loved the idea of faith being tied into it but I felt myself not connecting with this book. It was still a good read but I was happy when it ended and I could start my next book

Yvonne Orji is known to many of us as Molly Carter from the hit HBO show, Insecure. Even though I have a love/dislike relationship with the character of Molly - I love the authenticity that Yvonne Orji brings to the surface. The moment I fell in love with Yvonne Orji and became her sister in my head was after watching her HBO Special, Momma, I Made It. I grew up in a Liberian household, so I could relate to EVERY SINGLE WORD that Yvonne Orji spoke on stage. My husband looked over to me a few times while I laughed with tears in my eyes, and my response to him was the same... "You didn't grow up in an African household - so you won't get it." Let me tell you how God works; I listened to Yvonne Orji on my Calm App, then the next day, I find myself reading her book, Bamboozled. The title Bamboozled by Jesus may take some people by surprise, but before opening the book - I knew what it meant to be Bamboozled by Jesus. I had my son, Dylan, at 42 while on birth control pills. Even the doctor told me I had nothing to worry about at my age because my ovaries were done producing, bamboozled by Jesus! At 47, My husband & I are running around the house trying to catch up with a 5-year-old. Bamboozled is the book I needed to read, and I'm sure God knew it too. This book had me laughing, embracing some hard truths about myself, grabbing my bible, and highlighting a few passages. This book serves as a reminder to keep pushing through this journey we call life to embrace the beauty waiting for us. I felt as though I was having a conversation with Yvonne Orji as I read the book. I could hear her voiced while I read the book. Memo to self: Buy the Audiobook. One of my favorite books of the year!
