New Good Book: If God Is Love, Don’t Be a Jerk

Thou shalt not be horrible.

Imagine for a moment what the world might look like if people of faith, morality, and conscience aspired to this mantra.

In his new book If God Is Love, Don’t Be a Jerk ; John Pavlovitz examines the bedrock ideas of our religion: the existence of hell, the utility of prayer, the way we treat LGBTQ people, the value of anger, and other doctrines. And he leavens the heavy with humor.

Pavlovitz brings his gospel to the JX and your comments and questions.
