I came across a book in May of last year that so challenged and blessed me I could not stop raving about it. I have been recommending it far and wide.
That book is The End of Religion by Bruxy Cavey.
The book makes the point that Jesus came to renew the relationship between God and man not to start a new "religion." From the opening chapter this book had me going back to the Scriptures and looking with fresh eyes.
Written with crisp style Bruxy Cavey dives right into the thick of things without mincing words. He goes right to the Word of God and draws out things I never noticed before.
If you have not read this book yet I would HIGHLY recommend it.
The End of Religion is published by Navpress.
