Product Description

Three years ago, Judah Smith, pastor of the City Church in Seattle, Washington, wanted to get people thinking about Jesus. He didn't want to promote his church or a certain denomination, he just wanted to see what people thought of Him, to let them fill in the answer to "Jesus Is ____". That campaign resulted in billboards, bus signs, facebook ads, and a website where people shared their reactions and thoughts. The reactions ranged all over. Many were positive affirmations and declarations of faith, others were painful and serious expressions of doubt, and others were downright blasphemous.
After the experiment, Smith had a new mission--to share what the Bible says about who Jesus is. In this book, Smith hopes to fill in the blank for believers, seekers, and atheists alike, who wonder who Jesus is and what He's about. Using humorous anecdotes, mixed with real-life stories, Biblical insight, and filtered through his curious and somewhat ADD brain, Smith presents a robust portrait of the character of Jesus. He is Someone who loves you more than you can imagine, who wants to show you what real life is, and most of all wants to make you a better human, by becoming who you were made to be.

Publisher's Description

A New York Times Best-Seller!

Jesus is ____. How would you finish that sentence?

The subject is there, and so is the verb, but what comes next? Your answer could shed light on the path to becoming who you were made to be.

In these pages, Judah Smith fills out that sentence again and again, each time further revealing the character of Jesus. He writes as if to a friend, illustrating the importance of Christ’s message to modern men and women. This is a book for new believers, for lifelong followers, and for the merely curious.

Judah Smith shows us the Jesus that somber paintings and hymns fail to capture. With passion, humor, and conviction, he shows that Jesus is life. Jesus is grace. Jesus is your friend. Jesus is a new and better way to be human.

    This book has opened my eyes to who Jesus is. I knew that he was my friend and all that but I never really understood what it all means or should mean to me. It has definitely helped me in my walk with God. Definitely recommend it to everyone.

    This book really opens your eyes up to the grace of God. "Jesus Is" is a great book for teenagers struggling in high school and I would recommend it to everyone.

    Great book!

    This book will change the way you see God. It will help you understand how much God really loves us, all of us, because he loves us all. This book totally eradicates all of the negative religious dogma attached to Christianity... Once you pick it up you won't want to stop reading it. If you are looking for a book about the Person of Jesus Christ that is easy to read, definitely pick this. If you really want to know who Jesus is, read this book. You won't regret it!

    I did receive this book for free from BookSneeze.com in exchange for a fair review. I have received no compensation or pressure to give this book a positive review; I have done that on my own free will. I would give it three and a half stars out of five.

    I loved this book,
    I think everyone should read it, Christian or non Christian it's an easy read, I love his writing style because it reflects today's conversations. Maybe I enjoyed it so much because I am also ADD like he seems to be haha! But I enjoyed it so much, I have already passed it on and already have a line up waiting to read it after:)
