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



"Jami Amerine takes the reader on a tender, riveting, multifaceted journey in Stolen Jesus. The Jesus she discovers in the New Covenant is like a cool glass of water after spending years in a relentless fiery furnace. There nothing mundane about this author and absolutely nothing boring in the poignant words of Stolen Jesus."
Tracy Levinson, author of Unashamed



"Jami Amerine announces, 'I broke up with Jesus!' She does a good job of saying the things we all feel. Of searching for what we all want to find. And of refusing to settle for easy answers. I started reading her journey and ended up journeying right along with her. Thank you, Jami, for your humorously serious quest to find the Real Jesus."
Kay Marshall Strom, 21st century abolitionist



"Jami's search for Jesus is authentic, vulnerable, and heart touching. She rips off clean and tidy façades, fights legalism, and hits back against backbreaking shame. Expect to go through these pages laughing, arriving at the last page loved and liberated."
Kelly Balarie, author of Fear Fighting



"It's beautiful. It's authentic. It's delightful. It's honest. I chuckled and gasped and reflected and got covered in goose bumps. Every few pages, I found myself taking a break and pacing the floor to give my head a moment to catch up with what was happening in my heart. This book is a captivating story of a grace encounter with the Real Jesus. It left me praising Him. Pondering Him. Conscious of His presence. Aware of His love. Knowing Him more. Loving Him more...without even trying."
Tricia Gunn, author of Unveiling Jesus



"I love a writer who tells the raw truth, shows her flaws and foibles, and keeps you smiling and hanging on every word! Stolen Jesus will have you laughing and nodding your head in agreement one minute and wiping away tears the next. Searching is good, questioning is good, but know that there are answers and Jami's book will help you find them. You'll come away wanting to know the Real Jesus."
Kate Battistelli, author of Growing Great Kids

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.

What a trip! First, let me say, Jami is FUNNY! This book is FUNNY! Yet, it is also raw. In one moment I’m laughing, but in the very next I’m crying. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher about three weeks ago. I zipped through the first half, which is loaded with colorful antics from Jami’s present & past life. Towards the middle of the book, I slowed down, because there is so much to process. Here we find less anecdotes and more of Jami sharing the Truths she has learned about the Real Jesus. Jami opens her heart and lets us explore her journey to finding Real Jesus. She is very personable, gracious, and transparent. This book gently challenges the reader to examine his/her life and beliefs, with the ultimate goal that each of us finds the Real Jesus. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to laugh or anyone who is even the tiniest bit curious as to who this Jesus guy is. Trust me; the ride is worth the price of admission.

Stolen Jesus is a book I will read over and over again. Jami Amerine is a masterful story-teller who had me laughing, crying, and pondering, all within the same chapter. Stolen Jesus will cause you to examine your own heart and assumptions a little more closely as you discover the beauty and grace of the Real Savior. *I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher.
