A Book Worth Reading
I Knew Jesus before He Was a Christian . . . and I Liked Him Better Then is an attempt to make an appropriate and helpful distinction between the gospel and religion, between Jesus and the institution in human history that has driven so many away from him. Yet it is a “pro-church” book that calls God’s people to do a better job of representing Jesus to the world by finding its true identity in him.
