Review

“Is there a contradiction between believing that ‘Jesus is the answer’ and not being a Christian? In this spiritually honest book, Krattenmaker is intent on showing that there isn’t. Whether you are a Christian or not, whether you are religious or not, you will benefit from his wrestling with Jesus as the embodiment of the ‘true life,’ the key to human flourishing. An important book in a culture in which Jesus has for many become a ‘moral stranger.’”
-Miroslav Volf, professor of theology at Yale University, author of Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World
 
“In a book rich with meaning for believers and nonbelievers alike, Tom Krattenmaker offers insightful analysis of American culture and makes a uniquely compelling case for the transformative nature of Jesus.”
-Kirsten Powers, USA Today columnist, author of The Silencing
 
"This is an important book; brilliantly subversive and extraordinarily helpful. This gift is for any of us 'in search of a sun' around which to orbit our lives."
-William Paul Young, bestselling author of The Shack and Eve
 
"Tom Krattenmaker is a keen observer of culture and the American religious landscape, and I read everything he writes. In Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower, Krattenmaker offers readers surprising reflections on the benefits of modeling one's life based on Jesus's ministry and teachings. While the book purports to speak to non-believers, don't be fooled. A committed Christian will glean as much from this book as an avowed atheist."
-Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined and contributing writer for The Atlantic
 
While too many of us in the Christian world are picking each other apart, Tom is about the real, substantive work of Jesus, right here and now. 
-Christian Piatt, author of Leaving A-Holiness Behind and postChristian, host of the Homebrewed CultureCast

Product Description

An award-winning USA Today columnist makes the case for how a Jesus freed from religion and politics meets the need for meaning and purpose in secular America.
 
Tom Krattenmaker is part of a growing conversation centered at Yale University that acknowledges—and seeks to address—the abiding need for meaning and inspiration in post-religious America. What, they ask, gives a life meaning? What constitutes a life well led?
  
In Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower, Krattenmaker shares his surprising conclusion about where input and inspiration might best be found: in the figure of Jesus. And Jesus, not only as a good example and teacher, but Jesus as the primary guide for one's life.
 
Drawing on sociological research, personal experience, and insights from fifteen years studying and writing on religion in American public life, Krattenmaker shows that in Jesus, nonreligious people like himself can find unique and compelling wisdom on how to honor the humanity in ourselves and others, how to build more peaceful lives, how generosity can help people and communities create more abundance, how to break free from self-defeating behaviors, and how to tip the scales toward justice.
 
In a time when more people than ever are identifying as atheist or agnostic, Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower is a groundbreaking and compelling work that rediscovers Jesus--and our own best selves--for the world of today.
