Jeanette WindleLancaster, PAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A revolutionary and fresh look at Jesus ChristJuly 7, 2011Jeanette WindleLancaster, PAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just who is Jesus, and why should I follow Him? I thought I had the answers to those questions down pat until reading Stan Guthrie's 'All That Jesus Asks'. This book is the best apologetic on the Person of Jesus Christ that I have read in years, maybe ever. Combining tight journalistic prose with thoughtful contemplation, Guthrie employs Jesus Christ's own techniques of story-telling and asking leading questions to teach truth. Specifically, Guthrie uses the questions Jesus himself asked of disciples, followers, political leaders, even enemies to lay out the fundamentals of just who is this Man from Galilee, why it matters, and what our relationship should be to him. Personal anecdotes from Guthrie's own life and input from many of today's top Christian voices bring alive Gospel accounts written two thousand years ago to a twenty-first century readership. None of which captures just how reading this book impacted my own heart and life. In short, as one more Christian weary of the institutional church and superficial religion, I encountered afresh in these pages the Jesus Christ who revolutionized my own life, and for that alone I find myself recommending this book again and again. A must-read for anyone wanting to know better the biblical Jesus.
Lynn SeveranceLynnwood, WAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Book Exploring the Essence of Jesus' WordsApril 1, 2011Lynn SeveranceLynnwood, WAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was totally engaged while reading this book by Stan Guthrie. What an amazing premise he brings - a challenge to his readers to potentially deepen our relationship with Jesus by looking at the questions He spoke as recorded in Scripture. I met that challenge as I read, "All That Jesus Asks".
Jesus questions are familiar to me but many became "new". And ever "new" they should remain to any of us seeking to grow in our ongoing journey with Christ.
Stan brought excellent resources to this masterfully crafted work. First. he brought his passion and personal walk as a Christian. He shared openly the realities from his own life and how Jesus' questions have challenged and deepened his faith.
Stan's exceptional career as a journalist makes him a credible writer to tackle this type of book. Themes are structured in a way that prompts the reader to investigate and reflect as the flow of Jesus' questions builds in the context of each section.
Stan's knowledge of Scripture and his insights garnered from reading other writers who were/are devoted to understanding their Christian journey add dimension to this book's goal. At times, I found my own relationship with Christ eloquently expressed and affirmed. Conversely, Stan does not shy away from bringing in quotes from writers in controversy with Christianity or those within the Christian arena who beg the reader to look carefully at the rhetoric of interpretation.
It is a book about God's love in sending His Son to complete a redemptive work on the Cross. It is a book that causes the reader to dig deeply into the Son's words, renewing the essence of what that love means to the reader as an individual. It is a book about living as a Christian of influence in the world. Ultimately, it is an encounter with the One who will always woo us into wholehearted relationship with Him.
Study questions end each chapter. I can see this book as a dynamic resource for church groups. Stan's bibliography is extensive prompting further exploration and/or study for readers who want "more".
Pastor RocElmsford, NY5 Stars Out Of 5Read it and grow!February 28, 2011Pastor RocElmsford, NYQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Stan Guthrie is one of the few brilliant and brave ones who could think and write a book of such scope. As I digested All That Jesus Asks, I felt as if I were reading an unusually meaningful doctoral thesis. Though I've been teaching the Word of God for years and have exposited the biblical words of Christ countless times, it never occurred to me how much of God's intellect was implicated in the textual questions of Jesus.
Stan's writing is intellectually provoking, theologically fair, culturally incisive, and heartwarmingly honest. Through Stan's transparent personal narratives depicting his life's struggle with cerebral palsy, I not only feel enriched by having gotten to know Stan better, but I finished All That Jesus Asks feeling transformed by having gotten to know Jesus better.
MickeySan Antonio TexasAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A VERY good bookJanuary 24, 2011MickeySan Antonio TexasAge: 55-65Gender: maleStan the man in Gods hand, knocked this one out of the park. A must read for everyone who takes their walk with Christ seriously. It is the kind of book that every disciple of Christ can sink their teeth into, learn from, and grow. Guthrie has a way of approaching well known passages of scripture from a different angle and revealing great truths.
Robert5 Stars Out Of 5A Probing Look at JesusJanuary 15, 2011RobertQuestions often expose the depths of both the person asking and the person asked. That's what makes this book so excellent. By investigating the questions that Jesus asked, Stan Guthrie allows readers to better understand Jesus Christ and how he transforms his followers. Jesus' questions tell us who he is and who he claimed to be. And he sought to explore the understanding of those who followed him in his day. Today, those questions continue to expose our own ideas of who Jesus is and how we ought to be his disciples.
