about this item

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 aren’t telling it.” So in this new book, Bethke tells that story anew, presenting God’s truths from the Old and the New Testaments as the challenging and compelling story that it is—a 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.

    This book will change the way you think! Jeff does a great job of bringing old testament truths to light in an interesting and relevant way. This is without a doubt a must read.
