Product Description

Drawing from the gospels and the stories shared in his real-life experiences counseling many searching adults, Donoghue brings Jesus into the grit of modern human life. He leaves the meek, mild, and forgiving Jesus for a time in order to provoke the reader to put aside old lenses and recast Jesus as the challenging and attractive model of spiritual and emotional maturity that he really is.

Publisher's Description

In The Jesus Advantage, Paul Donoghue suggests that, in the midst of the "self-help" publishing explosion, people with Christian roots take a new look at Jesus Christ as a model of wholeness. He points out how Jesus too often is seen as only meek, mild, and forgiving or has been appropriated by political groups to bash those who are different or who hold different views And he carefully helps the reader to recast Jesus as who he really is: an attractive model of spiritual and emotional maturity. Jesus was a strong person who was not timid about pointing out the faults of others nor unwilling to speak his mind. Jesus was never afraid to go against the tide, especially if it meant embracing those considered to be on the fringe of society: the poor, the sick, and the sinner.
