the-naked-gospelJESUS + NOTHING

This is exactly what the new book by Andrew Farley can be summarized as. The title alone is one that catches your eye… The Naked Gospel: The truth you may never hear in church. Wow! That is a pretty bold statement to make right on the cover, and that is exactly what Farley delivers!

From the back cover of the book…

Jesus plus nothing. 100% natural. No additives. It’s the truth you may never hear in church. The Naked Gospel is a chapter-by-chapter assault on the churchy jargon and double talk of our day. It puts forth a message that is simple but life-changing. With a fresh take on Scripture and unapologetic style, The Naked Gospel will challenge you to re-examine everything you thought you already knew.

Each day for just over a week, several amazing people will be gathering here to share their thoughts on this book.
