What does it really mean to be like Jesus?
It is safe to say most Christians do not live like Jesus did, have the same influence on people he had, or draw even the slightest curiosity from the onlooking world. Jesus's ability to attract people and win their hearts was directly related to how he challenged their assumptions about religion. He not only gave them a unique, personal way to follow him but also showed them how to participate in his mission.
Sacrilege exposes the patterns of thinking that have held the church hostage for years and inspires you to rethink the way you understand Scripture, family, spiritual formation, conversion, church, sin, and more. Your faith may never be the same. And that's a good thing.
"A refreshing book for those of us who want to know Jesus and who want to make Jesus known. Hugh Halter shares with us how to remove the barriers of religion and let people meet Jesus in us."--Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, Community Christian Church; spiritual entrepreneur, NewThing
"Hugh, in his fabulously engaging way, accomplishes the release of Christian theology from its church-centric focus back onto the streets--where it got its start and where it belongs. It's like opening a window in a musty room to let in some fresh air."--Reggie McNeal, missional leadership specialist, The Leadership Network
"Hugh Halter has written a carefully constructed theological Molotov cocktail which explodes false myths while it fires up the Christian imagination for truth, beauty, and goodness."--Leonard Sweet, bestselling author and professor at Drew University and George Fox University
"This is an honest retelling of Jesus's unruly story with a simple call to be like him in a world where most prefer their sacred cows untipped and their feathers unruffled."--Jen Hatmaker, speaker, author of Interrupted and Seven
"A jarringly honest appraisal of the church. Halter is a missional apostle cut out of the same cloth as Saint Patrick."--Jim Henderson, cofounder of Off the Map, author of Jim and Casper Go to Church and coauthor of The Outsider Interviews

I like how the author sees Jesus!! Oh, that we would be more like him. It so reminds me of the Ghandi quote "I like your Chirst. I do not like your Christians."Published 23 months ago by Amazon Customer
