The title exactly describes this book. It is about Jesus and how we as Christians can be more like Him. The author teaches you through scripture who Jesus is and how His life can change your life. It is a simple book and written so anyone can read and understand it. It was not condescending in any way and is a great recourse for anyone who wants to learn more about Jesus. I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the book and only had a few spots where I felt it was repeating itself or the idea got lost in the words. Overall it was a good book and a joy to read!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

When I received â€œJesus Pure & Simpleâ€ I was really excited to read it! The back of the book asks, â€œDo you ever feel like youâ€™re being pulled in a million directions?â€ Why yes, many times I do! Iâ€™m sure many people feel that same way these days! There are so many good things to be a part of now that it is hard to know when to say no. I am learning that there are many projects and ministries that are good, but just arenâ€™t for me right now. And that is ok!
Back to the bookâ€¦I started reading it, and was frustrated within a few pages. The author has many good stories and illustrations, but he jumps back and forth constantly. I kept reading hoping maybe it was just the first chapter, but it wasnâ€™t. It just didnâ€™t flow easily from subject to subject. The stories were great and encouraging, but I like books to flow. I was a bit disappointed that I didnâ€™t love this book since I had such high hopes. If you like to read short encouraging stories, you might enjoy this book; otherwise, you might want to keep looking for a different â€˜simpleâ€™ book.

Everyone goes through difficult times in life. You may be experiencing a situation that has left you feeling lost and hopeless. Whatâ€™s the answer? Return to Jesus â€“ pure and simple. On the other hand, you may be involved in ministry, being pulled into several different directions at once as you try to balance family, friends, job, studies and faith. These are all good things, but they can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Whatâ€™s the answer? Return to Jesus - pure and simple.
Wayne Cordeiro reminds us of the simplicity of faith and following Jesus. He points out how we often lose sight of our true priorities as we try to accomplish our own goals. We become overwhelmed, or stray for the path, and the only thing that can truly be at peace (no matter what our circumstances may be) is to return to Jesus. Jesus is our example, and spending time with Him will make us more like Him.
In the final chapter, Cordeiro discusses three choices we must all make.
1) Choose this day whom you will serve.
2) Choose the posture you will take.
3) How will you respond when tested?
All of these are extremely important, but in todayâ€™s world I think we really need to focus on the second. The posture you take is the â€œattitude or disposition that you have as a believer.â€ Cordeiro shares these points:
â€¢Be steadfast without being belligerent.
â€¢Be teachable without being gullible.
â€¢Be courageous without being arrogant.
â€¢Be righteous without being self-righteous.
Overall, this book is a reminder to every believer. We may stray. We may fail. We may move so far away from the Father that we feel like we can never return. But we can. If we only look for Jesus, weâ€™ll find Him. Heâ€™ll be waiting there with open armsâ€¦ pure and simple.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Bethany House.

The title of the book is self explanatory. The first few chapters, Pastor Cordeiro takes a while to explain his thoughts about the subject and I think to the average person, this might seem like it is a slow going book. With that said- Please do not stop reading this book! It is a well written book with many practical applications of how we need to step back from what we think we know is right, or even from our school of thought and get our focus back on Jesus.
The style of the writing is simple, almost like a conversation. As far as the versions of the Bible, he uses many. (personally I do not like this, but that is another discussion) Although there are few things in the book that I would not agree with (coming from a more conservative school of thought) this book was very helpful in some areas to focus on Jesus, which is what the Christian life is all about.
At the end of each chapter there are discussion questions that you can go back and reflect on or use in a small group session.
This book gives many examples, many of which were first hand experiences for the author. He is not just saying that we should do this, but is giving first hand accounts of where he has learned the lesson, and sometimes the hard way.
Overall I think that this book was helpful tome and would suggest it to others.
I am part of a review program with Bethany House and received a free copy of this book. The manner of receiving the book in no way affected my review of this book.
