This post is an announcement and an invitation – and I am so happy to be making it!

Dear friends, as of now, the expanded edition of The End of Religion is available for pre-order wherever you buy books!

For the last decade I have continued to do research on the themes in the original version of this book, and over the last couple of years I have been writing new chapters (and re-writing old ones). The result is this new book, with almost twice the content of the previous edition.

The End of Religion is written to your non-Christian friends, to partner with you in generating conversation in a way that should also encourage all our hearts to live into the freedom that is found in the New Covenant.

I believe in this book. I’ve received too much encouraging feedback from the previous edition about new faith found and old faith renewed not to have confidence that this edition will be so helpful to so many.

Excellent.  Both playful and profound.This book both invites seekers to explore who Jesus really is and challenges life-long Christians to follow Him more faithfully. A lively, probing, faithful presentation of the real Jesus.
– Ron Sider, Anabaptist / Author / Activist

And now I’m inviting you to partner with me in a few ways. Would you please help?

  1. PRE-ORDER RIGHT NOW. I’m told that pre-orders help boost publicity. It does make a difference. So, rather than wait until its release date, if you would kindly go to Amazon now and pre-order the book, it will be tremendously helpful.
  2. REVIEW WHEN READ. When you do read the book, if it has made an impact, writing an online review on Amazon and other sites would also be a blessing. (And if you hated the book – be like Mary and treasure these things in your heart.)
  3. SPREAD THE WORD. Thank you for helping me get the word out. Through social media, or just socializing, thanks for letting your friends and family know. (And if you would like a picture or graphic or banner to share on your social media, please contact me at and I will be happy to share, or just repost or retweet anything you see me posting.)
  4. FEEDBACK RIGHT HERE. Lastly, for those of you who have been blessed by the previous edition (published way back in 2007), it would mean so much to me if you would offer your encouragement, endorsement, and feedback about The End of Religion in the comments of this blog post right here right now. By posting here, I trust you will be happy if I do repost your comments on my social media. This will also help people hear about the book.

That’s it! Thank you so much for your help and encouragement! Now, please comment away!

  1. So very excited! The original edition and accompanying podcast was so very nourishing to my soul in one of those dark night times. Do you know if there will be an audio books version? I’ll be sure to get a copy either way!

  2. This book completely changed my life. It was if the Jesus I knew in my heart was finally represented, historically for who he truly was. I found myself falling even more in love with Jesus each page and also wanting to be more like him. This book is a blessing to our generation! I cannot recommend it enough.

  3. The first “end of religion” book confirmed to me so much the Jesus i personally met and experienced. It encouraged me stay close to his teachings and in HIS presence. I hope the new book edition will also be available in German (language). Would love to give it away to my friends.

  4. Every time I buy this book, I end up giving it to someone who needs it more than I do. So put me down for ten. I have been using it in my prison ministry and it has been so effective! Everyone needs a copy of this book in their bible case.

  5. Will there be a study book as well? Or something more condensed that can easily be used in a small group setting in which not everyone is fan of reading thick books – sorry Bruxy – no matter how good the book is 🙂

  6. I am SO Excited to hear about this new expanded edition! When I read the book way back when it came out, I was in awe. I had never heard or understood Jesus the way Bruxy was explaining him. Jesus is SO much more than how He has traditionally been presented or explained in church. I was so thankful to God for this book when I first read it, because it refreshed my faith, and helped me understand that having a faith in Jesus was about following him & not just believing in Him. I started to identify as a “Jesus-follower” rather than a Christian because that felt more accurate….to know Jesus is to follow Him, not just believe in Him. He changed the world – He changes everything. And His was is THE way. THE END OF RELIGION is one of the best books I have ever read – my friends and I are starting a book study on it next month! I am over the moon for this new expanded edition soon to come out. Thank you Bruxy. What a gift you have given us all with your book(s).

  7. I read “Jesus. Punkt.” in German and bought the other books by Bruxy. No kidding: that saved me. Night after night I suffered the most terrible nightmares and died a thousand deaths. After reading the books everything is fine.

  8. Bruxy, I would say the very first edition was life changing and mind-blowing for me. Thank you for your insights and your dedication to teaching so well.

    Question: is pre-ordering on Indigo possible? I try to avoid ordering from Amazon if there are other options. (If Amazon is the only platform where pre-ordering helps to boost publicity, I’ll do it just for you!)

  9. This is fantastic! I’ve so enjoyed discussing the original version chapter by chapter in a triad of friends. Are there plans to also update the German version “Jesus. Punkt”? One of my racing crew is from Germany.
