Books by Andrew Farley
Jesus didn’t come to get you to do more or work harder. He came to give you rest!
Jesus calls us to exchange the heavy yoke around our necks for something he said is “easy” and “light.” So why are many Christians feeling weighed down and burned out? The simple answer is that we’re constantly being told we should “do more” and “be more” for God.
Bestselling author Andrew Farley calls this what it is–works-based religion–and presents us with a surprising paradox: good works spring from spiritual rest. So if you long to experience true release from the crushing expectations that the world–and the church–often throws your way, you’ll find lasting hope in this unexpected message.
I found myself lying on the floor of my apartment, sobbing for hours on end: “God, I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do, and I still don’t feel closer to you. In fact, I feel worse than ever! How could this have gone wrong? I can’t see any way out. Help me.”
As a university student, Andrew Farley found himself physically and emotionally addicted to street evangelism and Bible study. Yet despite his fervid behavior, he knew something was missing. That something was an understanding of the gospel that is stripped of the compromises and clichés of the modern church.
The Naked Gospel finds friends among those who are burned out on experience-chasing, ceremonialism, or legalism. It attacks churchy jargon and powerless ideas and puts forth a message that is simple but life-changing. The Naked Gospel will challenge you and stir you to re-examine everything you thought you already knew.
Andrew Farley’s experience as a Christian was first characterized by self-effort as he tried to please God at any cost. His ruthless religion resulted in spiritual fatigue and disillusionment with church. Only then did he discover what relaxing in Jesus means and how enjoying God’s intimate presence can transform everyday life.
Using a unique story-driven format, God without Religion dismantles common religious misconceptions, revealing a hopeful approach to what unites us rather than what divides us, the true meaning of walking by the Spirit, the facts about judgment, rewards, and God’s discipline, and the problem with the popular challenge to “die to self.”
Pulling no punches, Farley shows how the truth about these controversial issues can liberate and unify believers as we discover how to rest in the unconditional love of God.
