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.

  • Sissss did that

    By Brided
    Let me tell you,Im usually not a huge fan of autobiographies from celebrities because at times it seems as though its not written in their voice. Yvonne made sure her voice shined through and remained consistent throughout. Sis did that. I found myself laughing and said I know that’s right aloud on several occasions. It felt like a conversation I would have with my homegirl while learning of few things about myself in the process. It is a must read. I loved her use of the bible and her play on words was brilliant. Well done.

    Loved every chapter. Yvonne continually shows us that loving Jesus and being a part of God’s covenant is a beautiful thing, and can be cool. I love they way she told Bible stories and made them sound like a story one of your friends is telling you. But that’s what God is - a friend. And Ms. Orji reminded me of that. I didn’t know who Yvonne was before reading this book, I was only captivated by the title. Now she has me watching Insecure for the first time and checking out her HBO special! I love it here 🥰😍
