Synopsis

Freedom from judgmentalism.

Are you frustrated by a tendency to judge others? Pastor and award-winning author Greg Boyd asserts that God shares his unsurpassable worth with each of us, making the practice of judgment foreign to Christian character.

In Repenting of Religion, Boyd shows you how to begin practicing a religion of love rather than embracing judgmental doctrine based on our human perceptions of morality. He exposes lies we have believed about ourselves and others and demonstrates the freedom we have for establishing true biblical community.

If you're ready to reap the rewards of loving others, this book is for you.

"Anything but another run-of-the-mill evangelical book, it is radical and revolutionary. It will make readers think critically about some traditional evangelical habits of the heart."--Roger E. Olson, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

"The local church is called to be God's community of redemption rather than the exclusive clique of rejection it has often become. This is a prophetic call to repentance."--Gilbert Bilezikian, author of Christianity 101

"Mere Christianity is religionless, Boyd rightly says. It is about dancing with the triune God. And, since it's all about mercy, let's love one another and stop judging."--Clark Pinnock, author of Most Moved Mover

Gregory A. Boyd is senior pastor of Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, Minnesota. He is the author of twelve books, including Seeing is Believing and the best-selling Gold Medallion Award winner Letters from a Skeptic.
