Have you suffered through a bad experience with church?

Have you encountered one—or several—insensitive Christians?

Please, says Don Everts, don't let that stop you from finding out more about the most compelling, audacious, wild-eyed, radical, revolutionary person that ever lived—Jesus!

In this discussion guide, Everts and Douglas Scott offer ten sessions of candid inquiries into who Jesus was, what he was like and whether or not it matters. Drawing on excerpts from his book Jesus with Dirty Feet as a jumping-off point, they also use each session to explore the big differences between institutional Christianity as you know it and the reality of following Jesus.
