I got the book because I enjoy the music of Casting Crowns and knew Mark Hall was a really good writer. After finishing the book, I have to say that he's a great writer. He takes complex ideas and makes them real. I have used things I've learned and read about in this book to witness to non-believer friends and even challenge some of my church friends. I would recommend everyone read this book at least once.
I really like the group Casting Crowns, so I purchased this book. It really got me and I have passed it on to a friend and we are each purchasing add'l copies. Each of us should have "Your Own Jesus." Check it out; it's really a great book.
Your Own Jesus, is exactly that. A direct conviction to decide who Jesus is and what he means to you. This book is clear in reviewing what impact Jesus has in a believer's life. Jesus came to be personal. Jesus has to be personal to everyone who reads this book.
I've been a Christian most of my life and serve in the church. I bought this book for my kids who are teenagers but decided to read it myself first. Not only is the doctrine sound, but it is very challenging for mature Christians as well as young. I decided to order 4 more and am giving them as gifts! Easy to read and inspiring. 5 stars.
