the Jesus of suburbia

I'm reading this book by Mike Erre, titled 'Jesus of Suburbia' I'm going to review it later, but I read this quote yesterday and had to post it.

In reference to the story of Job,

"It's in this desperate place, where our understandings of God have been overturned and when our world has been knocked upside down, that we realize the truth: many of us are religious precisely to keep us from trusting God. We go to church, we give money, and we do all the right things - in the hope that God will never put us in a position where we actually have to trust him." - Mike Erre, the Jesus of Suburbia
