“Finding Jesus is All About Losing Your Religion”
Author David Putman Explores the Path
for Following Jesus Away from Toxic Religion
ATLANTA, Jan. 5, 2010– In his new book, Detox, church planting expert and Atlanta-area pastor David Putman begins with what may seem like a quip: “Christians should lose their religion.” But he’s really quite serious. Putman says the biggest barrier many people encounter in their search for a meaningful relationship with God is that they are “overly religious” and have allowed the veneer of religion to deter them from simply following Jesus Christ.
Detox, released by B&H Publishing Group on January 1, 2010, provides an easy-to-read 23-step “detoxification devotional” to help wean readers from their dependence on rules and empty religious traditions and to explore the simple-but-profound journey into a relationship with Jesus.
The 23 steps are presented in three sections: Living Like Jesus Lives, Loving Like Jesus Loves, and Leaving Behind What Jesus Leaves Behind (more followers).
Living Like Jesus Lives
Loving Like Jesus Loves
Leaving Behind What Jesus Does
Each chapter ends with questions for reflection individually or as a group.
