Was Jesus of Nazareth an irreligious agitator? Was his message more radical than weve been led to believe? Has the Christian religion missed the point? Bruxy Cavey thinks so. In The End of Religion, Cavey contends that the Jesus described in the Bible never intended to found a new religion; instead he hoped to break down the very idea of religion as a way to God. With a fresh perspective on biblical stories, Cavey paints a picture of the world God originally intended and still desires: a world without religion.
In The End of Religion, Bruxy Cavey shares that relationship has no room for religion. Believers and seekers alike will discover anew the wondrous promise found in our savior. And Christ's eternal call to walk in love and freedom will resonate with readers of all ages and denominations.
Bruxy Cavey is the teaching pastor of The Meeting House, ldquo;a church for people who arenrsquo;t into church,rdquo; in the Greater Toronto Area, where spiritual seekers are encouraged to ask questions and develop a thoughtful faith. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario, with his wife, Nina; three daughters, Chelsea, Chanelle, and Maya; and Toby the wonder dog. Discover more at www.theendofreligion.org.
