Finding Life in the Unorthodox Ways of Jesus
by Hugh Halter"This is an honest retelling of Jesus's unruly story with a simple call to be like him in a world where most people prefer their sacred cows untipped and their feathers unruffled."
—Jen Hatmaker, speaker, author Interrupted and Seven
A new book by church planter and pastor Hugh Halter aims to challenge our assumptions about what it really means to be like Jesus.
By Hugh Halter
"The world needs a tidal wave of sacrilegious apprentices." Read the first chapter from the new book by Hugh Halter.
What Leonard Sweet and other missional church leaders, professors and authors are saying about Hugh Halter's new book Sacrilege.
"Sacrilege is my attempt to start a groundswell at the street level where the entire story of Christianity began and can be reborn." Read the full interview with Hugh Halter.
By Matthew Boutte
Halter chooses to be deliberately provocative in his comments and in so doing doesn’t make the argument that we should be counter-cultural but that we should be counter-church.
By Terry Smith
Books like Hugh’s remind me why I feel called to participate with Jesus in this weird ministry I do. There aren’t many “Christian” authors I read that I think really “get it,” but Hugh does.
By Kurt Willems
If we want to follow Jesus we need to be willing to take the “sacred cows” of churchianity and destroy them. I highly recommend this book to anyone willing to explore that possibility.
By Dan King
One of the best things about this book is how Halter isn’t just throwing out some popular-ish, controversial perspectives just so he sounds cool. The dude is living it.
By Rachel Stone
I didn’t expect to like Sacrilege. But here's the thing - I liked this book despite not liking a lot of things in it.
By Kyle Roberts
I think part of Halter's response to this image problem is exactly right: if Christians would spend more time and energy serving and loving the outsider rather than condemning them or trying to preserve "family values" at all costs, this might change.
By David Swartz
Sacrilege smacks of blasphemy, of something profane, even evil that Christian people shouldn't touch. But is it?
By Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
Sacrilege aims to deconstruct all sorts of things that, while they may have once been helpful, probably aren't any longer. But let's not cut ourselves off from the source.
