Thriving stand-up comic and actress Yvonne Orji—best known as Issa Rae's BFF on the HBO series, Insecure—shares the secrets to living the life of your dreams.
Yvonne Orji has never shied away from being unapologetically herself, and that includes being outspoken about her faith. Known for interpreting Biblical stories and metaphors to fit current times, her humorous and accessible approach to faith leaves even non-believers inspired and wanting more.

The way Yvonne sees it, God is a Sovereign Prankster, punking folks long before Ashton Kutcher made it cool. When she meditates on her own life—complete with unforeseen blessings and unanticipated roadblocks—she realizes it’s one big testimony to how God tricked her into living out her wildest dreams. And she wants us to join in on getting bamboozled. This is not a Self-Help book—it’s a Get Yours book!

In Bamboozled by Jesus, a frank and fresh advice book, Orji takes readers on a journey through twenty-five life lessons, gleaned from her own experiences and her favorite source of inspiration: the Bible. But this ain’t your mama’s Bible study. Yvonne infuses wit and heart in sharing pointers like why the way up is sometimes down, and how fear is synonymous to food poisoning. Her joyful, confident approach to God will inspire everyone to catapult themselves out of the mundane and into the magnificent.

With bold authenticity and practical relatability, Orji is exactly the kind of cultural leader we need in these chaotic times. And her journey through being Bamboozled by Jesus paints a powerful picture of what it means to say “yes” to a life you never could’ve imagined—if it wasn’t your own.

  • Never knew who Yvonne was, but loved this book so much!

    By TJM1111
    I feel like the Lord randomly (divinely) led me to this book as I was searching for something to read. It was exactly what I needed. I have never seen Yvonne’s shows and knew nothing about her, but that’s what’s really cool. I found every bit of her story MAGNIFICENT in the way that God has journeyed with her. The Holy Spirit definitely infused these words leaping from the pages. I’m also holding onto a promise in my own life, and I loved reading how the Lord did it all in her life. If you’re in a wilderness season and waiting for your promise, I highly recommend this book. It was so funny, but also full of incredible Bible stories that were shared in such a unique way. It’s very inspiring and I couldn’t put it down at all!!! 10/10 recommend this book!
