If you are active in any type of church, or you have come to the place where you know Religion isn't working and the Church is failing, this is a must read! Cavey discusses the radical, subversive, and irreligious nature of the true, unedited-to-bend-to-this-church's-beliefs, Jesus. He nails in the point that religion (as in organized, forms, structures, rules, etc.) and the church (building, exclusive group, division) is not the answer, end-game, or otherwise the way to knowing God. Rather God, through Jesus, is the way to Himself, and certain aspect of religion may be expressions or products of our relationship with Him, such as the Church (ALL Christ-follwers) meeting together in fellowship. Cavey goes on to challenge us to love in the radical subversive way that Jesus did. Absolutely refreshing!

I truly enjoyed this book! A great book about the grace of God, having a relationship, not a religion!

Posted 10/23/11: In this book we are introduced to the real Jesus not the one that church leaders are teaching about, that is why Jesus came to earth in the first place to do away with the lie.

The torrential Kauai rain drove me, and many other vacationers, into the nearest bookstore to find a new book and fresh coffee. Finding this book has inspired me to examine the Bible with a new appreciation of Jesus's radical message. Cavey's easy style makes this book the perfect rainy day read.

I'm glad a writer final explains, simply, the differences between religion and relationship. It's all about Jesus and following His example, not rules, rites and all the other added extras, no matter what church you belong to.

I was a bit skepital at first, i thought not another book on Religion,but after reading it i was very glad i did. It is very enlightening, thought provoking and might i say it spoke truth to a lot of things others only bear to think. Excellent book! I really learned a lot from reading it.
