Is the God who created us better than the God we've created?

After following Jesus for nearly two decades, Jonathan Merritt decides to confront the emptiness of a faith that's dry, predictable, and rote. In a moment of desperation, he cries out for God to show up and surprise him, and over the next year, God doesn't disappoint.

In JESUS IS BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED, Jonathan shares vulnerable stories of how he learned to encounter Jesus in unexpected ways. From a 60-hour vow of silence in a desert monastery to confronting his own sexuality to almost kidnapped in Haiti by armed bandits, he experiences Jesus in places he never dreamed of

But he doesn't lose his way. Instead, these experiences force him back to the Bible, where he repeatedly offers fresh, sometimes provocative, interpretations of familiar passages. Along the way, he throws back the covers on the sleepy faith of many Christians, urging them to search for the Holy in their midst. His fearlessly honest story invites us all to discover the messy mercy and crazy grace of a sometimes startling Savior.
