Derrick does a great job breaking down a healthy handful of hang-ups that are unfortunately common in today’s Church. It’s written in little bite-sized pieces of Grace and Love. More important to me than the anything in the book itself, I’ve become acquainted with Derrick online over the past few years, and I can say that he is a man who loves God and loves people. This man earns my five-star rating for sure.
Readers will grow from one level of understanding to the next (on a variety of topics) by reading this book; but I’ll say this: don’t rest on your laurels—there will ALWAYS be more to know and understand on the next round! As Christ followers, we should always make it a point to stay humble and hold loosely to our doctrines, while holding tightly to Jesus Himself. Doctrine is, of course, important and helpful; but our faith must always rest in JESUS HIMSELF, more than in the things we believe ABOUT Him. Blessings as you read!
This book is written in an easy to read conversational style, which makes his discussion of each of the issues very easy to understand. You may not agree with all of his conclusions, but that's one reason that this book is an excellent addition to any serious Christian's library. If you agree with him on an issue, he provides excellent references you can use in your own discussions. And even if you don't agree with him on some topics, he documents why he believes what he believes, so if you don't agree, you'll have the chance to be more clear on why you do hold a particular position.
Love it or hate it, this book is a thought-provoking look at many of the sacred cows in modern-day Christianity. Everyone loves a BBQ unless it's your sacred cows that are being roasted. So get the book and enjoy the feast.
Honest scholars and spirit filled babes in Christ will both find Deconstructing religion as simultaneously filling as it is refreshing.
In this volume, Bishop Derrick Day effectively challenges the traditional [religious] status quo with spirit led perspicuous explanations; making Deconstructing religion a Light, scholarly, authoritative page-turner!
Rarely do you find a book covering multiple subjects of this nature that will challenge you without being challenging, ergo, anyone can read it, everyone can learn from it.
I’m blessed by the fact that Deconstructing religion slices heavy theological subjects into delicious bite-sized palatable pieces. There is only one caveat to be exposed. I do not recommend this book to those who [for whatever reason] choose to be bound by the weak and beggarly elements of the law. By the time you reach the final page, you get the sense that God has spoken, he has spoken to you and while he was speaking he was setting you free, whether you like it or not!
As a ghost writer and 7-time author, I have to confess that if I had to write another book, this is the one that needed to be written. The problem is, I’m not sure who could have done as fine a job as Derrick has done with Deconstructing religion. I'm seriously considering making this book required reading for all of my students.

It is easy to understand and quickly grasp the concepts presented. You will be surprised at some of the practices of church as we have known it, to be exposed as nothing but man-made religion. He truly de-constructs religion!
I highly recommend this book to remove the veil of religion and tradition from your mind, so that you can enter into the free gift of grace that Jesus came to bring!
I applaud Derrick Days massive use of scripture to back up his context and I appreciate his Jesus centered 'New covenant' approach to explaining the context and meaning of many scriptures in their proper use and relevance, all while graciously and lovingly explaining and unpacking how religion has been misunderstanding and misusing them throughout history and also today.
