Publisher's Description

Over time, Christian people can run the risk of becoming “too religious”—too wrapped up in programmatic church activities and less focused on Christ alone. In response, David Putman (Breaking the Missional Code) has written a new book detailing twenty-one ways to reinstate the centrality of Jesus into our daily lives. Divided into three action-ready topical areas (Live like Jesus, Love like Jesus, Leave What Jesus Left Behind), Putman offers what he calls “detox for the overly religious.” Here is a chance for you, your small group, or your entire church to lose religion and rediscover Jesus—simple and yet profound, and all we really need.

    How many times have people become Christians, then find themselves following rules and regulations more than Jesus Himself? It happens over and over again; we as humans have that tendency to want to rely on rules rather than to develop a relationship with Jesus.David Putman, who is the pastor at Mountain Lake Church in Atlanta, GA, found that he was falling into that trap. His heart cry is to rediscover the simplicity of Jesus, and he wrote Detoxfor the Overly Religious to help his readers do that.This book is broken down into three sections:Book One: Living Like Jesus LivesBook Two: Loving What Jesus LovesBook Three: Leaving What Jesus Leaves BehindThe Lord has been showing me again and again in many different forms books, friends, church messages, etc - that He wants me and all of us - to be free. It is the spirit-filled and joyful way to live!Detox.for the Overly Religious includes discussion/study questions at the end of each chapter, as well as a page for Thoughts, Prayers, and Doodles on the Jesus Way. I think this book would be wonderful for both new believers and people who have been Christians for a long time that need to get religion out of their system. The study can be done individually or in a group setting. I have been so touched by this book, and plan to refer back to it again and again until it is completely in my system!I am so grateful for Pastor Putman bringing us back to the essence of Christianity following Jesus and providing us with examples from his life and a real-life blueprint for how to do that. I think the Lord wants us to come back to Himself, and I appreciate Pastor Putman showing us that we need to lose our religion and rediscover Jesus simple and yet profound, and all we need to be free (from back cover). This book was provided to me by B&H Publishing Group for review purposes.Reviewed by Andrea Schultz Ponderings by Andrea http://andrealschultz.blogspot.com
