God without Religion
Can It Really Be This Simple?
Andrew Farley's experience as a Christian was first characterized by self-effort as he tried to please God at any cost. His ruthless religion resulted in spiritual burnout and disillusionment with church. Only then did he discover what relaxing in Jesus means and how enjoying God's intimate presence can transform everyday life.
Using a unique story-driven format, God without Religion dismantles common religious misconceptions, revealing
the true meaning of being filled with the Spirit
the facts about judgment, rewards, and God's discipline
the simple truth behind predestination and the divisions it causes
the problem with the popular challenge to "live radical"
Pulling no punches, Farley shows how the truth about these controversial issues can liberate and unify believers as we discover how to rest in the unconditional love of God.
"Andrew Farley is one of the best young writers yet most mature thinkers in the church today. Read God without Religion to hear the voice of a 21st century Bonhoeffer who shows how to ring in the good times when Jesus (not religion) is the cantus firmus, the enduring melody, of our lives."--Leonard Sweet, bestselling author and professor at Drew University and George Fox University

If you want to dump the religious burden and live in the true freedom and joy of Christ, God without Religion is for you."--David Gregory, bestselling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger and The Rest of the Gospel
"God without Religion is brave, genius, and full of the best kind of hope. Andrew Farley offers us a clear, more joy-filled, and peaceful route to God, without religion! And we need that now more than ever."--Matthew Paul Turner, bestselling author of Churched and Hear No Evil
