Jesus Hates Religion

Alex Himaya writes for those who have been hurt by religious people- who have been betrayed by religion- because he too has been wounded. No longer content with pretending those things don’t happen, pastor Himaya retreats with readers back to the Scriptures to see what Jesus thinks about man-made religion.

Himaya, a popular speaker and Bible teacher, draws upon years of pastoral experience, providing insight into the ways religion cripples the church. While it may seem reasonable to earn one’s way to God through a works-based system, a religion of rules, Himaya warns readers of the danger of putting their faith in good deeds.

Jesus Hates Religion is not simply another book about Christianity, but a detour sign on the road of life. Himaya points readers away from himself, and towards Jesus saying, “Don’t trust me. Trust God, and let Him speak for Himself.”
