This book will leave you asking that question. It's simple, and yet sometimes its the first thing that we forget. Who Jesus really is. I love how quickly I can pick up this book and delve into it and get so much out of it. It's packed with biblical truths that will leave you wanting more of Jesus. I picked it up the other day and couldn't put it down. I promise you if you are questioning your faith, or who Jesus is...pick this book up. You'll love it! It's my prayer that as you read it you will grow in your walk with the Lord, and truly be an example to the world of who Jesus Is...
This book is absolutely amazing! This book challenged me to take a deep and close look at who I really think that Jesus is? What kind of people did he pursue? How did he pursue them and why? And what does that mean to me? Pastor Judah Smith combines biblical accounts of Zacchias, Matthew, the parables of Jesus and many others to get his readers to connect his thoughts with what the Scripures say. Great book!!! I HIGHLY recommend this!
Jesus is _________. is an interesting book, written by Judah Smith. I haven't read anything by him, so this was a first. I think that his target audience is the more younger crowd... college and twenty-somethings but the book's subject matter is for everyone. Its just that how he says it, with the humor and all the references to movies and other current media makes me think he's talking mostly to a younger group.
The book started with him saying that his was a more 'outreach' program, to get people talking and thinking about what Jesus is like. Jesus is __________. And it does get a conversation going and that can really help folks truly reflect on what their experience or ideas of Christ, perhaps trading in a negative idea for a more positive one.... because after all, Jesus is beautiful.
It's actually a pretty good book that I could really see my children enjoying and engaging in.
I received a free copy of this book via booksneeze.
There are few books that will truly cause a revolution in the hearts and minds of believers and unbelievers alike. This book is one of them.
Life is all about Jesus. And when we know who we are in Jesus our lives are transformed by His infinite grace and we find ourselves living the expansive life that God intended for us. (I think that I just used the word life a lot!)
Jesus Is______. will hold you spellbound as Pastor Judah unfolds the goodness, the greatness, the relentless love of our God and Savior. Pastor Judah writes without pretension and is so very transparent throughout the book, recognizing his own struggles and gratefully acknowledging the work of grace in his own life.
My husband and I read this book together on a road trip (don't worry, he drove and I read aloud to him). By the time we arrived home we were so absolutely overwhelmed by the depth of love that was revealed to us through the book.
For ministry leaders the team has put together a great resource for you- the dvd and curriculum will help you take the message of Jesus Is_____. and teach it to your small group.
