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.

    My sister went to the City Church in Seattle Washington where Judah Smith took over as Senior Pastor after his father passed away a few years ago. Fortunately, for her sake, she no longer attends. And from the theologically reckless handling of the person and work of Jesus Christ within the pages of this book, I can see why her and her family chose to leave.

    Judah was the youth pastor at the City Church for many years and his immature handling of the biblical text shows that he was ill prepared to take on the enormous responsibilities of his new position. In my opinion, Judah could have benefited from taking, at least, a couple of theology courses before stepping in as the Senior Pastor of such a large and influential congregation. His utter lack of understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ is both embarrassing and dangerous. It is embarrassing because it throws open the door for intelligent non-Christians to mock this influential pastor's understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ (c.f., 2Sam 12:14). It is dangerous because Judah has such a persuasive platform from which to speak to the thousands of souls at the City Church who respect this young man and hang on his every word as if what they were hearing (or reading) was biblical truth. However, nothing could be further from the truth. This book is an absolute theological disaster.

    I am aware that theology is out of vogue in our day and that those who are repulsed by anything theological will probably find my comments abrasive. However, as I see it, only a correct understanding of theology can cause someone who reads 'Jesus Is' to see it for what it is--just another easy way to make money off of biblically and theologically illiterate people. This book brings reproach upon the incalculable sacrifice of our heavenly Father in sending Jesus into this world to save his people from their sins. I agree with most of what the other one star reviewer wrote, except that I do not think he took his criticism of Judah's abysmal Christology far enough.

    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.
