Repenting of Religion: Turning from Judgment to the Love of Godby Gregory A. Boyd
Pastor and author Gregory A. Boyd calls readers to a higher standard through understanding the true manner in which God views humanity: as infinitely worthwhile and lovable. Only an attitude
We human beings are burdened by our tendencies to harshly judge others and ourselves. Unfortunately for believers, this bent is as prevalent in the church as in the world.
Pastor and author Gregory A. Boyd calls readers to a higher standard through understanding the true manner in which God views humanity: as infinitely worthwhile and lovable. Only an attitude shift in how we perceive ourselves in light of God's love can impact how we relate to people and transform our judgmental nature.
Believers wrestling with the reality of God's love and Christians struggling with judging in the local church will appreciate this examination of how we move from a self-centered to a Christ-centered life.

This book opened up the scripture to me in a completely new light. The book of Romans is much less enigmatic and the rest of the Pauline letters take on a more urgent call away from works and towards the obediance that results from Love of God rather than love of your particular religion or doctrinal dogma illustrating how we can trip over the same stumbling blocks as the Jewish converts in early Church.
This book is absolutely foundational to helping us understand the way in which christian faith and love is to be lived out. the discussion of where we get 'life' from is something that is powerful for every christians. Greg challenges traditional christian thought of judgement and love and causes us to truly look at the manner in which we live out our lives. without love, there is nothing.....
