Over time, Christian people can run the risk of becoming “too religious”—too wrapped up in programmatic church activities and less focused on Christ alone. In response, David Putman (Breaking the Missional Code) has written a new book detailing twenty-one ways to reinstate the centrality of Jesus into our daily lives. Divided into three action-ready topical areas (Live like Jesus, Love like Jesus, Leave What Jesus Left Behind), Putman offers what he calls “detox for the overly religious.” Here is a chance for you, your small group, or your entire church to lose religion and rediscover Jesus—simple and yet profound, and all we really need.
David Putman serves as one of the pastors at Mountain Lake Church in Atlanta, Georgia, where he focuses on issues related to growing the church’s impact in its community and around the world. Having coached hundreds of church planters across America since the 1980s, he is also recognized as one of the catalysts of the current church planting movement. David and his wife Tami have two children.
