Product Description

From a former winner of the Award for Excellence from the National Council of Teachers of English comes this refreshing, humorous indictment of "Jesus as My Buddy" spirituality. If Jesus too easily resembles ourselves, we are less likely to feel challenged, provoked, or threatened. Rather, we should let God be God. 256 pages, softcover. Kregel.

Publisher's Description

Cutting through the glossy, modern perceptions of Jesus, Jared C. Wilson returns to the Gospels for twelve raw, realistic portraits of Christ in this revolutionary book. "Your Jesus Is Too Safe" offers a clear image of the historical figure of Christ in his biblical and cultural context.

Ideal for readers dissatisfied with the "Buddy Jesus" that has pervaded the evangelical landscape, "Your Jesus Is Too Safe" provides a devotional, inspirational survey of Christ and his kingdom with a conversational style, humor, and a solid theological foundation.

Library Journal

Nashville pastor Wilson sees too strenuous an effort to reduce the Christian message to simple evangelism and too great an identification of church with materialist and consumerist culture. Here, he seeks to retrieve Jesus as the historical and single messenger of the gospel news for the world; each chapter emphasizes an aspect of this single figure (Promise, Forgiver, Shepherd, Sacrifice, and so on). While this amounts to a series of familiar sermons, less jazzy and sexy than the title promises, many readers will derive benefits from Wilson's ideas. VERDICT An invigorating new vision of Christian purpose for conservative Christians. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
