Paperback
:

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.

Jefferson Bethke

Jefferson Bethke has a compelling story of overcoming a painful childhood of poverty and a broken home, and this gives him a unique perspective on the grace of God and the work of Jesus in his life and the lives of others. It s this perspective that has catapulted him into the national conversation regarding religion and spirituality, allowing his message to connect at a heart level with an audience ranging from atheists to nationally recognized religious leaders.

Its what you think - AMAZING!
5 stars By Emma, Jul 21 2016
If you expect this book with be nothing short of amazing - its exactly what you think! Jeff Bethke doesn't disappoint in this new book - from the start I was hooked! He has a way of taking something you've read before or had a view on and somehow challenging it in a great way! its written in such a way believers or unbelievers alike could enjoy it! I particularly loved the thoughts on "the table" and "the temple"! A must read!!

Fantastic Book
5 stars By Kimberley, Apr 14 2016
This was a fantastic book. I would recommend everybody read it. Jefferson Bethke brings a new way to look at the Bible and the story of Christianity. I was challenged whilst reading the book and learnt so much about my walk with God and the Bible.

Game Changer
5 stars By LaurenL_ScullySpeaks, Oct 20 2015
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. In my opinion this book is leaps and bounds better than Jesus  Religion. After I read Jesus  Religion I was pretty impressed and learned a lot, then I went to try to read it again a few months later, only to discover that the material in it was kind of bland the second time around. I thought that maybe I was just growing spiritually, so tbh I wasnt sure if I would gain any new insight from INWYT. BUT bc I am a huge Bethke fan (of both of them!) I just had to read this. It did not disappoint! If you haven't ordered this yet, do it now. and then order a second copy to pass along bc you will want to!!!!
