Most of us don't like religion.Instead of having religious vocations like monks and nuns, we are the nones-and-dones. The ranks ofexvangelicalsswell as people leave churches marked too often by unhealthy power structures, patriarchy, prejudice, and a near lack of inclusion. But even among those of us still in the Evangelical Christian sub-culture, there is little enthusiasm aboutreligion, as such. Evangelicals decry "Religion" as a human attempt to please God which had very-little-to-do with the ...more

Summary: In an era when religion has a bad name, the author proposes that what we need is not "no religion" but the kind of religion that James writes about, and that his church is trying to live out.

I enjoyed reading the

A deeply moving, thought provoking book that stays with you long after the final page is turned. This book is about not just saying we are the church but actually being the church. Drawing heavily on the book of James and the experiences of the authors church in Toronto this book is all about being the hands and feet of Christ in the way we were meant to. Emphasizing heavily that we need to be helping other especially the poor and that faith without works is dead. Deeply moving and based soundly ...more

Greg Paul is a pastor and founder of a Toronto church which welcomes all kinds of people, from the very poor to the very wealthy and the homeless and disadvantaged. Greg Paul is an accomplished writer and has written a number of other books. He is married with four children.

Resurrecting Religion is the first book by this author that I have read. It is a very powerful and thought provoking book. It is easy to read and understand and the reader is left with a guide of sorts as to how to get our
