Sixseeds and Patheos blogger Jefferson Bethke has a new book about Christianity called, “It’s Not What You Think,” with a special foreward by Ann Voskamp:
That is certainly high praise. The book description sounds amazing (I just downloaded my own copy!):
Jesus was most upset at people for seeing but not seeing. For missing it. For succumbing to the danger and idolatry of forcing God into preconceived ideals.
What if there were a better way? What if Jesus came not to help people escape the world but rather to restore it? Best-selling author and spoken word artist Jefferson Bethke says that “Christians have the greatest story ever told but we aren’t telling it.”
So in this new book, Bethke tells that story anew, presenting God’s truths from the Old and the New Testaments as the challenging and compelling story that it is—a grand narrative with God at the center. And in doing so, Bethke reminds readers of the life-changing message of Jesus that turned the world upside-down, a world that God is putting back together.

By the way, another one of our bloggers, Sean Lowe, also sings Jefferson’s praises:
My buddy and bestselling author @jeffersonbethke released his new book today titled”It’s Not What You Think”. If you’re an avid reader like me, check it out. If you’re not, check it out anyway. This guy has a unique ability to break down scripture in a way that is very relatable. Can’t wait to crack this baby open!
