The Romance of Religion by Longenecker is a must-read for every believer. It takes faith and bravery to fight the good fight, but Longenecker encourages readers to harness that courage to face their fears and stand up against injustice. He draws on stories from the Bible and shows how we can create a romantic hero within ourselves when Christ’s story is applied to our lives.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that religion is just a fairy tale: it’s much more than that. The Romance of Religion shows how we can find our inner strength to battle for what is right with panache, humor, and courage. By tapping into the romance of religion and donning armor in confident belief, readers will be armed with the knowledge they need to serve justice. The sword is no longer an image; it’s a living reality for those with courageous hearts willing to follow Christ through whatever adventures lie ahead!

And does he succeed in his quest? I encourage you to read it to find out." -- Michael Ward, senior research fellow, Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and professor of apologetics, Houston Baptist University
