 Description: This six-session Bible study for all students is based on Jefferson Bethke's book by the same name. In this study, Bethke will help participants understand that following Jesus isn't about rules-based religion, which only leaves you empty and unsatisfied. They will see that freedom and true joy is only found in the grace of Jesus and resting in a relationship with Him.
Jesus > Religion author Jefferson Bethke burst into the cultural conversation in 2012 with a passionate, provocative poem titled Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus.
In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks similar contrasts that he drew in the poem—highlighting the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. With refreshing candor he delves into the motivation behind his message, beginning with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behavior. Bethke is quick to acknowledge that he's not a pastor or theologian, but simply a regular, twenty-something who cried out for a life greater than the one for which he had settled. Along his journey, Bethke discovered the real Jesus, who beckoned him beyond the props of false religion.
