God without religion? 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 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

•  the problem with the popular challenge to “die to self”

Pulling no punches, Andrew 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.

    " Very interesting and eye opening. No rules approach to God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Donahoe | 11/3/2012

    " This was a very good book explaining that we need Jesus plus nothing. Religion is not the answer, but God alone is. There are several Bible passages that are explained very well, clearing up some misinterpretations and making more sense than religion explains them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 9/13/2012

    " Brilliant simple explanation of New Covenant Christianity. The way that Farley exegetes biblical passages that are usually contentious is truly remarkable. A must-read for all Christians - particularly those who are trapped in a rule-based religion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madison | 5/9/2012

    " Jesus plus Nothing = Everything. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caleb Gibson | 3/27/2012

    " One reason I don't really like Farley's opinion is because He bashes tithing. I get the idea the that it can put you back under the law, but I tithe because Jesus lives. That is just my opinion, overall great book! If those chapters about tithing were not in the book I would give it a 5 star! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 3/5/2012

    " Great explanation of Christianity and Christian law. It provides many Bible verses and life stories to help further explain the differences between old law and new law. It would make a great base for a Bible study. "

    " Awesome book!!! God without religion is the only way to live!!! "

    " I really liked Andrew Farley's first book The Naked Gospel (though I disagree with his interpretation of Romans 7) and I high recommended it. I REALLY liked God Without Religion and HIGHLY recommend this book!!

    More to follow. "

About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
