At a time when people practice their faith in extremes--either publicly, with a legalistic, combative tone that creates division, or privately, to the point that their faith becomes functionally irrelevant--award-winning author Greg Paul casts a new light on religion that is beneficial for believers and the world.
Using the book of James as a guide and the streets of Toronto as a proving ground, Greg Paul demonstrates that true religion is not a necessary evil, but the way we put flesh on the bones of our faith. Resurrecting Religion is a convicting and inspiring vision for a world-changing faith.

At a time when most people practice their faith in the extremeseither extremely publicly, with a legalistic, combative tone that creates division, or extremely privately, to the point that our faith becomes functionally irrelevantaward-winning author Greg Paul offers a vision for religion that is good for us and good for the world.
Paul, founding pastor of Sanctuary Toronto, a ministry and faith community serving marginalized communities, has written a compelling resource sure to bring the needed wake-up call to those Christians who are quite ignorantly living a functionally irrelevant life. He recounts real-life scenarios of those within his city who have been forgotten, overlooked, and dismissed, and parallels this obvious neglect with Jesus call to go to the poor and needy. The author spends ample time explaining what Gods Word has to say about religionthe good and the bad. Pauls chapter The Leveling Effect will especially hit home with middle-class Christians and how they tend to view their finances. In 10 chapters, Christ followers will discover and hopefully put into action fresh steps toward living selflessly and devoting themselves anew to those within their sphere of influence. Paul exposes the faulty beliefs so many Christians cling to out of naivety and perhaps fear before offering a better way to meet the needs of those individuals God brings across their path.
