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.

Yvonne Orji is perhaps best known for her knockout performance as Issa Rae's best friend, Molly, in the hit HBO comedy series, Insecure, currently in its fourth season. The show follows the friendship of two modern-day black women and all of their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations.

Lately, Orji has been proudly sharing the Nigerian-American perspective on all things millennial through her podcast, Jesus and Jollof. Outside of her creative work, she is dedicated to charitable efforts and currently lends her time and voice as a R(ED) Ambassador, a Literacy Champion for Jumpstart and working with JetBlue for Good. Orji currently resides in Los Angeles.

Reviews

“Yvonne is an original voice that really needs to be heard now more than ever. Once you let her in your mind, you’ll never want her to leave.”

Chris Rock, actor and comedian "A delightful debut... Orji's boundless enthusiasm will appeal to her fans and newcomers alike."—Publishers Weekly “Inspiration practically leaps off the pages and into the hearts of readers.… Orji is a cheerleader and best friend for every dreamer.”—LaParis Hawkins, Booklist "Yvonne somehow found a way to brilliantly weave her humor, insight, courage, and faith into pages that feel like a weekend retreat hanging with your best, boldest, brightest and most blessed girlfriend. Bamboozled by Jesus is real talk about deep faith put in practice from a woman committed to living a life of vision, purpose, service and success."
