Many Christians feel as if something is missing in their relationship with God. Out of a desire to find an in-depth, authentic relationship with God they try to do all the things they're taught to do.  Inevitably many believers find themselves simply living out a results-oriented "behavior management system" of spiritual growth disguised as Christianity. Unfortunately, rather than leading to an intimate relationship with God, this behavior-based system does just the opposite. It produces an unsatisfying life full of inner turmoil that's driven by guilt and shame.  Join Chuck on a journey of making critical distinctions between awkward religion and the life Jesus invites us into.  You might be surprised at just how much these lines are blurred in your own life and just how much freedom clarifying them can bring.

From the Back Cover:

We’ve all heard that Christianity isn’t a religion it’s a relationship. But a lot of us practice a Christianity that’s really a behavior management system . . . in other words, a religion one that nobody longs to be a part of! How can we stop confusing behavior management with the life-giving faith into which Jesus invites us? How do we move past having behavioral standards and habits as our only measures of maturity? Losing Your Religion will help you identify where beliefs meant to give you freedom have become a new set of religious chains. More importantly, you’ll find out how to let your relationship with Christ break those chains and lead you and others to true freedom. You’re not called to be a better Christian.” (What a relief!) You’re called to let Christ’s very presence transform you into a person who loves God and others wholeheartedly and with deep joy. But to get there, you must lose your religion. The good news is ... you’ll never miss it.
