New book

3 Mar

The kids, along with a little help from Daddy, got me The End of Religion: Encountering the Subversive Spirituality of Jesus by Bruxy Cavey (as well as a Nooma DVD and some really yummy chocolates!) for Mothers Day. I’m really looking forward to reading this book. Has anyone read it? What did you think?

From the back cover: Was Jesus of Nazareth an irreligious agitator? Was his message more radical than we’ve been led to believe? Has the Christian religion missed the point?

Bruxy Cavey thinks so.

In The End of Religion, Cavey contends that the Jesus described in the Bible never intended to found a new religion; instead he hoped to break down the very idea of religion as a way to God. With a fresh perspective on biblical stories, Cavey paints a picture of the world God originally intended and still desires: a world without religion.
