Thriving stand-up comedian and actress Yvonne Orji—finest referred to as Issa Rae’s BFF on the HBO collection, Insecure—shares the secrets and techniques to dwelling the lifetime of your goals.

Yvonne Orji has by no means shied away from being unapologetically herself, and that features being outspoken about her religion. Identified for decoding Biblical tales and metaphors to suit present occasions, her humorous and accessible strategy to religion leaves even non-believers impressed and wanting extra.

The way in which Yvonne sees it, God is a Sovereign Prankster, punking people lengthy earlier than Ashton Kutcher made it cool. When she meditates on her personal life—full with unexpected blessings and unanticipated roadblocks—she realizes it’s one huge testimony to how God tricked her into dwelling out her wildest goals. And she or he desires us to hitch in on getting bamboozled. This isn’t a Self-Assist e-book—it’s a Get Yours e-book!

In Bamboozled by Jesus, a frank and contemporary recommendation e-book, Orji takes readers on a journey by way of twenty-five life classes, gleaned from her personal experiences and her favourite supply of inspiration: the Bible. However this ain’t your mama’s Bible research. Yvonne infuses wit and coronary heart in sharing pointers like why the best way up is typically down, and the way worry is synonymous to meals poisoning. Her joyful, assured strategy to God will encourage everybody to catapult themselves out of the mundane and into the magnificent.

With daring authenticity and sensible relatability, Orji is strictly the type of cultural chief we’d like in these chaotic occasions. And her journey by way of being Bamboozled by Jesus paints a robust image of what it means to say “sure” to a life you by no means may’ve imagined—if it wasn’t your personal.

    Honestly…5 stars is not enough! Thank you Yvonne Orji! God used you to allow me to be “Bamboozled by Jesus”! For real! The title is what got my attention..however by the end of the introduction I knew is was “ordained” for me to read this book. So real…honest….transparent…and always giving the glory to God as you remind us his desire is to give us a life even greater than our dreams. Excellent book!

    I am a few chapters away from finishing this book, and I’m getting sad because I don’t want it to end—it’s just that great! I feel like Yvonne Orji is a good girl friend offering tips from her real life experiences to help me get my life together! This girl is annointed! And, while she doesn’t consider this a self-help book, it’s been exactly THAT for me and SO much more! It is humor, honesty and biblical teachings all wrapped up in a beautiful package. While reading the book, I felt like Yvonne was speaking directly to me and what I’m going through in my life right now. I have dog-eared and highlighted through so many of the pages, because I know I will return to the book for Yvonne Orji’s advice and guidance!

I absolutely LOVE the way I can relate to Yvonne in this book. She is funny, engaging, a straightforward, and most of all REAL. I have chuckled at her use of dialect because I am just like that.

    I started this book a few months ago got busy and forgot about it. This month I started a social media cleanse so I’ve been without social media for about a week. I’m trying to heal mentally and this book was everything I needed to motivate me, inspire me, and confirm everything I’ve been seconding guessing myself on. I love how she include the Bible verses and make it relatable.

    This book is just what I needed. I loved the way that Yvonne told her story while weaving in stories from The Bible, Da Good Book, as she called it. It was not “too religious” where its not practical and that is what I also enjoyed. There are so many highlights and notes on my copy because I revisit this book often. There are mantras or confessions that are also apart of my daily routine. I already loved Yvonne Orji and her Black Girl Magic but now I admire her so much more. Although she is a certified star and I am not, our stories were so similar and I gleaned so much! Do yourself a favor and read this book for yourself or choose it for your book club! Either way, read it now!

    This is one of my favorite books. I hate I waited so long to read it but once I did I could not put it down. It was very inspiring and the way she was able to compare troubles people may go through with bible verses were good. She had an unorthodox way of describing the Bible verses but I was able to understand. This book is a keeper and absolutely loved it!

    A New Language has been Invented! Yvonn-nics! Oh. My. God. She is a genius. She wrote this book like we were sitting in front of a fire place with a glass of wine having the best intimate girls night ever! Her book definitely inspired me to be more introspective to become a better me. Some of the things she said kinda stung like a bee but truth often stings a little. I thought she was just a great and talented actress but man, if you read just the first chapter of this book you will see just how multifaceted her talents really are. If I had to sum up this book in one word it would be: yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssss!

    In this social media-curated world, it’s refreshing to hear the perspective of someone who fought to keep Jesus in their lives and rise to the levels of success that Yvonne has. This book gives us a real & raw view of not only her struggles with her career, but her struggles with Jesus that brought her closer to Him. It’s easy to share when things go great, but it’s her perspective on doubt and hopelessness that gives the reader the faith to keep going. I love her, I love this book and I can’t wait to read her next one!

    I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the best books I have read in a while. As someone who has not read a book for leisure in a few years I could not put this one down. Yvonne not only brought her humor to life through the pages but she made me analyze my relationship with God and why he is so special. Through this book she makes you realize that you got the sauce and when you let God work he will show up and show out for you in the most unexpected ways. So, let yourself be bamboozled by Jesus as she says and pick up this book. There are some amazing gems in here.

    I loved the whole context of the book. Yvonne just kept it real, she never pretend to be someone else in her journey. The language was her being open and honest about all the things she had to endure to make it big, while remembering who was her guide. The book has made me look at my own life so I can catch the opportunity to be bamboozled by Jesus.

    This is a really good read whether you are just beginning your faith walk, in the middle, or more seasoned. The clear message for me was Yvonne’s obedience- it’s the thing that stood out the most. The writing seems to be geared more toward millennials but I would recommend it to anyone. Because of the way she chooses to compare Bible stories to modern-day quotes and “sayings” you may need to go back and read certain things once or twice- and it was just a tad overdone. Nonetheless, I was incredibly inspired and would easily recommend this to anyone. She stayed the course and did not let anyone or anything deter her from her walk with Jesus. Very, very inspiring.

    Y’all I’m not a review type of person. I mean yes I will tell my friends and fam about my purchases but I don’t normally write a lot of reviews. The way my life is set up I’m happy if I can leave a star or two. Lol!Anyway, this book is amazing! The way she tells the Bible stories are hilarious. If you’re a super saved saint you may clutch a pearl or two, but you will be alright. However, more than that it’s an amazing story about how God is still in the blessing business. We all have our journey to go through and sometimes the it’s not easy. Well… most of the time it’s not. But getting to the other side of blessing is so worth it.I hope we all hang in there and out last our darkest day by one day!

    I bought this book for myself and my daughter and have since then gifted it to another friend and recommended it to many. Very non-traditional inspiring and encouraging book with scriptures intertwined in a life story that shows the many ways God is always involved even when we don’t see or feel him connecting and we feel like we are free falling. Faith is hard to maintain without knowing who you are to God and Yvonne Orji knew who she was and pressed through learning lessons that she easily shares in her own funny, faithful way. It shows us that if we believe, the end-game comes out greater than we ever could have expected. Exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ask, think, or dream. Have faith.

Moving in faith can be intimidating…but Yvonne always comes back with a hi-ya 👋🏾 to turn your focus to God and have Him direct your path.

    Just scrolling through Instagram one day and Sarah Jakes-Roberts mentioned this book. I was like lemme go see and to my surprise, it’s was the “girl from Insecure”. I knew her character’s name but now I know and pay attention to her REAL name.It was this scroll through Instagram that was part of my destiny as I wrestled with purchasing a newly realeased book (which I never did before). The packaging is what got me, I’m a sucker, I know, but boy oh boy, if that’s what it took for me to get this book, Jesus knew.I’m from the Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago to be exact, so $1USD is approximately $7TT, plus I can’t return it as easily if I needed to. The “risk” was soooo worth it!I am writing this review after reading chapter 14…..Da Book Is Good!Dare I say it changed…my…life.A friend asked me to borrow because I raved about it on Instagram, which ain’t a problem BUT I believe this book is multidimensional and the places I have highlighted in the book may skew her experience. So please, if you are look for a Word, Encouragement, laughs and a whole lotta self growth and introspection….get the book!Thanks Yvonne if you ever see this.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when i first stumbled upon this book, I initially thought it was just a comedian writing in an entertaining way about her life story…But it was much more than that and well worth the read. She does an incredible job of sharing her story in her unique voice that I really connected with and enjoyed. Along the way she shared amazing stories about her triumphs and struggles while being honest about her faith and her relationship with God.I found her lessons learned really powerful and relevant in my life even though I’m not super religious and I’ve had many ups and downs in my faith. This book has been a great foundation in reconnecting to my faith and spirituality in general.Highly recommend this book if you need some inspiration of trusting the path of embracing you and reconnecting with your spiritual side.

    Love the Bible references, the down to earth, friend to friend writing style. I sent my daughter the book. Never did that before. A great reference book to re-read as a reminder that in life, God is in control, we need to take the time to listen to Him.

    This ranks up there with Pastor Mike Todd’s Crazy Faith. Yvonne takes you behind the curtain of success and fame to show you the reality of hardwork, grueling patience and the diligence of faith. She shows you how to sow generously with your time and talent to reap a life of generous purpose. I wish and pray for her continued success, and that it grows blessings for millions for decades to come.

    This book was filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit! I cried a few times as God confirmed and revealed things to me through Yvonne! Also the humor was funny and I truly believe Gods children are in every industry!

    I read this book really fast .. it was entertaining it was relatable it made me feel good about my relationship with God. I’ve never seen Yvonne on Insecure or her comedy stand up. I just felt compelled to pre order this book and I’m so thankful that I did.

    I tried to read all 24 chapters as slowwww as I possibly could but eventually all good things come to an end 😔I highly recommend this book for the person that is trying to hold on to a promise from God, walk with integrity, and seeking his face in all that you do as you reach what your idea of what success is ❤️I laughed, I cried, and I couldn’t put it down.I really enjoyed this one.Check it out when you get a chance.

    After the first few chapters, I had to stop underlining because I was underlining the whole book! I absolutely LOVED the way scripture pours out of Yvonne, and her ability to mix it with contemporary lyrics is unmatched, refreshing, and a rare skill. The Word cannot pour out that naturally from someone who doesn’t soak in it consistently, and Yvonne’s faithfulness is evident in this book.I understood every single reference she made, and there were times when I burst out laughing, times when her words cut right to my heart, and times when I felt so unbelievably seen and encouraged.If you are a first generation Nigerian (or African) American, who didn’t choose the DLE route (doctor, lawyer, engineer), this book will help you feel heard, advocated for, and not alone. It’s a reassuring confidence that God truly is at work in our Spirit led rebellion, and doing something new in our lives and family.It is clear that Yvonne not only knows who her audience is, but she too has embraced who she is and was created to be to the fullest, and her presence in this world in turn liberates others to fully embrace who they were created to be.In case you can’t tell, I HIGHLY recommend & I’m grateful for this book!

    This is an exceptional book! Yvonne Orji writes from the heart and weaves in the Bible within every chapter. You will laugh, examine your own heart, and come to Jesus about how he bamboozled you and how you are going to glow up to become the person he has called you to be.

    I literally laughed out loud while reading this book. It has given me the courage to stop trying to navigate this life on my own and just let God.

    Hitting the nail on the head on every angle. Biggest take away is having Faith and being patient. Staying at peace so you can hear the voice of God. Never walk this road alone.
