Stolen Jesus: An Unconventional Search for the Real Savior by Jami Amerine

Jami Stole Jesus...
And Jesus Stole Jami

Let's be honest. The journey to discovering Jesus—Real Jesus—can be complicated, messy, and a little crazy. Just ask Jami Amerine. Banned from the Mormon church as a child, she's spent the rest of her life trying to reconcile Fifth-Grade Jesus, Catholic Jesus, and Americanized Jesus (just to name a few).

But when she met Real Jesus, everything changed.

You can meet Him too—right here, just as you are. With designer coffee in hand or your jar of pickles for lunch. (Jami will tell you that story in chapter 1.)

If you've ever felt confused by the conflicting representations of Jesus you've encountered in the world, you're invited to join Jami's quest to release all the wrong ideas and get to know Jesus as He really is—bewildering grace and all.

(Oh, and Stolen Jesus? He sits on Jami's mantel. You'll get to meet Him too!)

Editorial Reviews

"When the grace of God collides with our candid admission of failure, the result is often laughter and joy. Stolen Jesus does not shy away from the hurts inflicted by messed-up religion, yet this is the funniest Christian book I have read. Thank God for honest authors like Jami Amerine who are brave enough to write about life as it is."
Paul Ellis, author of Stuff Jesus Never Said

"Stolen Jesus will steal your heart and compel you to keep turning the pages. If you feel as though you are on shaky ground in your walk with Jesus, this book will leave you standing on solid ground."
Anna LeBaron, author of The Polygamist's Daughter

"As mere mortals, we tend to create different versions of Jesus our own experiences. Jami's fearless and funny categorization of her collection of different Jesuses is something to experience. Not only will you want to pay real money just to be in the backseat of her car during her next Starbucks run (because you will...), but this book will make you want to go deeper; truly examining your own Jesus collection and paring it down to one, true, Savior."
Kathi Lipp, author of The Husband Project, Clutter Free, and Overwhelmed

This book. It is thought provoking without making your head hurt. As Jami tackles the different 'Jesus' figures she's created over her life, I was left pondering if I've done something similar in my own life. Her storytelling will draw you into her comical life. I honestly feel as if I've gained a best friend after reading this book. This bestie doesn't preach at you. Instead she encourages you to dig deeper into the love of the Real Jesus. I laughed until I cried. And then I just cried because the love of Real Jesus is just that great. I will definitely have this book on my shelf and purchase as a gift for others. I was given an ARC to read in anticipation of a review.

The truths in Stolen Jesus are beautiful, interspersed with candid stories that will leave your sides aching from laughter and tears streaming down your face. Jami writes like you're sitting across the kitchen table from an old friend - real, honest, vulnerable, and raw. This book is truly captivating, and once you start turning the pages you'll find it hard to put down. Jami shares her experiences with humility, humor, and a refreshing take on grace. Somehow, in the midst of it all, you find yourself nodding in agreement - like you've lived those stories right alongside her. While she doesn't use this platform to give the answers to life's most challenging questions, she does use it to introduce us to the One who can. A powerful read for anyone in any stage of life, but particularly meaningful for those who have struggled with feeling the need to earn, work for, or win the approval of Jesus. *I received an Advanced Reader Copy from the Publisher.

Stolen Jesus… a delightful memoir of how Jami came to find and run to and embrace the real Jesus, after so many years of trying to follow and being afraid of the made-up Jesus’s of her childhood and early adult years. The Jesus Jami introduces us to wants you. Loves you. Covers you. Invites you. Is amused, not repulsed by your antics. Finds no fault in you. You want to go to Him. You want to run into His arms. I was given an advance copy of this book, and by the time I was finished (and more than once while reading), all I wanted to do was to go to my room, close the door, curl up in His lap and bawl from the sheer relief of finally being understood, loved, cared for, protected, safe, covered, accepted as I am. Never have I read something that freed my soul to just rest in Jesus like this book has. Great read for believer and unbeliever alike. Believer - your heart will soar as you realize the truth: you are free. Unbeliever - you just might decide you want to meet this Jesus after all. He’s the real deal.
