Leaving Jesus Behind: Good Reasons to Give-Up the Gospel. A new kind of book. A new kind of message. From Rob Schläpfer. March, 2014.

"Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe." Jesus, to 'doubting' Thomas (John 20:29)

According to the Bible, The Gospel is to be believed and then seen, or understood. “... {it is} the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

People become Christians through an experience they have in their life. Not by trying to understand life itself. 1. Experience, (then) 2. Apply Understanding.

But what if we REVERSED that process? Would people become believers if they began with their understanding? 1. Understand, (then) 2. Apply Experience.

In this ground-breaking new book, a former Christian Teacher, Pastor, and “Voice from the Emerging Christian Counterculture” says NO.

Eight years after shutting down AntiThesis and the Christian Counterculture Project, Rob Schläpfer urges believers to take up a new challenge: do some thinking first.

Considering what we know about what it means to be human, the Bible itself demonstrates The Gospel ought to be given-up. It is Jesus himself, not unbelievers, who should be Left Behind.
