Books by Greg Albrecht

Beautiful Sayings: Beatitudes of Grace —Hope and healing – the Jesus Way that transforms lives.

Letters to My Friends: Our Journey of Grace Through Faith —Selections from hundreds of inspirational and uplifting letters Greg has written to Friends and Partners for more than two decades.

Wonders of His Love —Featuring the landscape photography of Ron Kelly, a biblical summary of the supreme love of God.

Wonders of His Grace —The first in the coffee table “Wonders” series featuring breathtaking beautiful photography by Ron Kelly with biblical passages and commentary by Greg Albrecht.

A Taste of Grace A Taste of Grace is an easy-to-read page-turning exploration of God’s amazing grace, demonstrated and illustrated by the teachings of Jesus. A Taste of Grace reveals God’s grace as irreconcilably opposed to the core values and beliefs of institutionalized religion. A Taste of Grace reveals God’s grace to be an absurd and foolish sentiment that doesn’t add up to the human mind.

Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace —Join Greg Albrecht as he examines what Jesus has to say about the kingdom of religion, through an eye-opening study of Jesus’ sermon in Matthew 23. Jesus uses words like woe, hypocrites, blind, greedy, self-indulgent, unclean, desolate, hell and snakes to describe the religious industry, its professionals and the consequences it brings into the lives of those it “serves.” But the kingdom of heaven, in stark contrast to the oppressive kingdom of religion, is a spiritual dimension of freedom and peace. Rejecting Religion—Embracing Grace affirms the ultimate victory of God’s grace.

Spiritual Soup for the Hungry Soul —Greg’s fifth book is a collection of 48 carefully selected messages Greg has previously given at Christianity Without the Religion. With nearly 400 compelling and inspiring pages, this is the most substantial of Greg’s books to date, so while you may be tempted to read it all at once—we recommend reading a little at a time. Spiritual Soup for the Hungry Soul makes a great devotional or a companion to other studies and resources you may use as you journey through the year.

Spiritual Soup for the Hungry Soul –Volume 2 —A second collection of 48 sermons previously given at the teaching ministry of Christianity Without the Religion. Another superb resource enabling the reader to consider timely messages for every week of the year.

Unplugging From Religion…Connecting With God —Get ready to know God who loves you more than you have ever imagined!
Get ready to discover how you can break free from religious shackles and embrace God’s unconditional no-matter-what love for you.

Between Religious Rocks and Life’s Hard Places—101 Answers to Tough Questions About What You Believe. Greg answers 101 questions about Christianity and the Bible. From prayer to prophecy, from sin to salvation, from tithing to the Trinity—you’ll come away from this book equipped with the tools and methodology to face life’s spiritual issues grounded in God’s grace.

Revelation Revolution—the Overlooked Message of the Apocalypse —is a revolution in the way that many have been trained and taught to think about biblical prophecy. Revelation Revolution is a grace-based, Christ-centered exploration of the biblical book of Revelation. Join many others in beginning to understand what the Bible’s most misunderstood book really means.

Bad News Religion—the Virus That Attacks God’s Grace. A guide to the most dangerous spiritual virus of the 21st century—the deadly virus of religious legalism—the idea that you can do something that will make God more pleased with you. Bad News Religion shows you how to spot legalism and tells how to identify healthy, Christ-centered, grace-based Christianity.
