When on stage with SLEEPING GIANT , Green often speaks about his family and his own personal history involving abuse, divorce and brokenness among other things. He knows firsthand how easily it is to feel disconnected, and uses his personal experiences to offer counsel. In addition to providing guidance through his book and Sleeping Giant shows, Green is also the founder and pastor of Revolution Reality Ministries, a small Salt Lake City based group he shepherds when SLEEPING GIANT is not on tour.
The physical version of Religio-cide was self-published by Green and is currently available. On September 27th, the audio book will be available exclusively through Ain’t No Grave Records on iTunes for $7.99.
Green states, “I wrote Religio-cide for people like me. It’s very easy to get trapped inside religious stereotypes and I hope that this can encourage people to freely pursue a real, spiritual relationship with God and not get so caught up in ‘religion’.”
