This book is about the misguided obsession with the management of sin that cripples too many Christians. It’s about the view that religion is all about sin…about how to hide side sin or how to stop sinning all together.
In the Introduction, the author toys good-naturedly with an agitated caller on his radio program, teasing him in a segment where he offers three free sins. The offer is real. Not that Steve has the power to forgive sins, but he wants to make the point that Jesus has made the offer to cover all of our sins – not just three.
Chapter one, titled “Teaching Frogs to Fly,” is even better. The gist of this chapter is that you can’t teach frogs to fly, just like you can’t teach people not to sin. Steve tells a story about a guy who has a frog, and he’s convinced he can teach the frog how to fly. The man keeps throwing the frog up in the air or up against walls – all to the poor frog’s demise. The message is that even though people can be better, they can never not sin—just like a frog can never learn to fly, no matter how much pressure is put on it.
Steve continues through the book to show readers that while they can never manage sin, they can relax in knowing that they are completely forgiven—not just of three, but of all.
Christians do not trust freedom. As author Steve Brown explains in this brave new book, they prefer the security of rules and self-imposed boundaries, which they tend to inflict on other Christians. Brown asserts that real freedom means the freedom to be wrong as well as right. Christianity often calls us to live beyond the boundaries, bolstered by the assurance that we cannot fall beyond God’s love. Freedom is dangerous, but the alternative is worse—boxing ourselves up where we cannot celebrate our unique gifts and express our joy in Christ. Each of the book’s eleven chapters explores a common pharisaic, freedom-stifling tendency, then opens the door to the fresh air of a remedial liberty.
Examples of common biblical knowledge challenges: Ask anybody how many animals of each kind Noah took on the ark and they'll probably say two. However, God told Noah to take fourteen of most. Yes, there were fourteen reindeer on the ark! The prophet Ezra blessed a divorce and proclaimed that the men should "be of good courage, and do it." Ezra 10: 3-5. God divorced Israel (Isaiah 50:1.) Now please, make no mistake, this book isn't pro-divorce or pro-drunkenness. Rather, it was written to provide bible based hope, no matter your current station in life and in spite of all of your failures, past, present and future. God's grace has you covered! Regarding forgiveness, Mathew 27:3 clearly states that Judas (a.) repented, (b.) confessed his sin publicly and (c.) gave the money back. So, with Christ standing in earshot of this confession, two questions arise regarding Judas: Would Christ forgive Judas? Did Christ forgive him?When it comes to real-life issues, many people are unsure and/or unaware of the simplistic guidance the bible offers. Why? Perhaps the subjects are too controversial to talk about in a church setting. Can you imagine the stir these road side church reader boards would cause? Sundays Sermon: God Divorced His Bride Sundays Sermon: Judas Repented Sundays Sermon: Jesus DrankSteve Brown will go out on a limb and say that most pastors would be in jeopardy of job termination if they wrote a sermon of this nature, and then posted the title, on Monday morning, on the reader board out in front of the church.
Why is this book different? Using solid Biblical references, this book seeks to stir up heightened interest in what the Bible says by questioning even the most primary, and most popular biblical teachings.
The message in many religious books is often "sugar coated" and non-controversial. But, the Bible isn't. Neither is "Jesus Drank, Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride."
Comments on "Jesus Drank, Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride" by the author, Steve Brown
Why did you write this book?Since I was a child I've been taught many things from the Bible that weren't true. For example, most people think Noah took two of all the animals on the ark, however it was fourteen of most (Genesis 7:2.) Granted, the number of animals on the ark isn't that important, but the teaching on divorce is important. As I searched through the Bible, I realized that flawed teaching on many important life subjects is widespread throughout the Christian world. With 5,000 hours of personal research involved I am confident arguing the accuracy of "Jesus Drank, Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride."
What will the reader walk away with after reading the book?Readers leave with a heightened interest in the scriptures. In the end, readers are reminded about the importance or forgiving others. The chapter on Judas may be the greatest example of forgiveness in all of scripture and this book lays a solid argument in Judass corner and in the corner of every other sinner alive. This is a book filled with evidence that "must be reckoned with."

Since protected area management and governance have traditionally been based on scientific research, a combination of science and spirituality can engage and empower a variety of stakeholders from different cultural and religious backgrounds. As evidenced in this volume stakeholders range from indigenous peoples and local communities, to those following mainstream religion and those representing the wider public. The authors argue that the scope of protected area management and governance needs to be extended to acknowledge the rights, responsibilities, obligations and aspirations of stakeholder groups, and recognise the cultural and spiritual significance that ‘nature’ holds.
The book also has direct practical applications. These follow the IUCN Best Practice Guidelines for protected and conserved area managers and present a wide range of case studies from around the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.
