Full Product Description
With a refreshing, simple voice Jefferson Behke confesses the story of a regular, twenty-something who exchanged his empty, self-righteousness for a deep, meaningful and life giving relationship with Jesus himself. This book, he hopes, will help to do the same for you.
In Jesus is Greater than Religion, the author opens a new cultural conversation with a follow up to his provocative poem: “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus” - the 4-minute video became an overnight sensation, with 7 million YouTube views in its first 48 hours (and 23+ million in a year).
This is the message the world was waiting for and boosted by social-media it triggered a landslide of response that encouraged and enraged in equal amounts. In Jesus > Religion, Bethke explores the motivation behind his message, beginning with the confession of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence down a path of destructive behaviour.
The author invites you to abandon your soulless approach to the dry, loveless rule-keeping of ‘religion’ and embrace the passion and promise of loving and being loved – by 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 behaviour.
