Our contemporary culture has seduced the church into packaging Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as appetizingly marketable forgeries. We've met the Hippie Jesus, the Therapist Jesus, the Get-Out-of-Hell-Free Jesus, the Key-to-Wealth Jesus, the Role Model Jesus, the Buddy Jesus...and a host of others.
Skillfully and honestly, Jared Wilson wants to introduce you to the Real Jesus. Cutting through the glossy, modern misconceptions of Jesus, you will discover the original, raw, honest Jesus who confronted the very religious heresies that have spawned today's pseudo-Jesuses.Sometimes controversial, sometimes humorous, but always frank and forthright, Your Jesus Is Too Safe challenges you to embrace the true and living Christ whose mission is to revolutionize--not fit into--the world that we inhabit.

Christy Lockstein5 Stars Out Of 5November 28, 2009Christy LocksteinYour Jesus is Too Safe by Jared C. Wilson is a intriguing look at the different aspects of Jesus. Jesus has lost much of His majesty and wonder in recent years as pop culture views him as a huggy/make-you-rich/non-judgmental guru without any of the message of the gospel. Wilson focuses on just twelve sides of Jesus to emphasize the real Jesus, straight from the Bible. The message of the gospel hasn't changed in its two thousand year: we are broken, sinful people and Jesus died to reconcile us to God. Only by acknowledging those two vital points can we truly come to know Jesus. He didn't come to make us rich or healthy or to bless our lives with great jobs or marriages or to feel good about ourselves. He came to save us from the sin to which we were lost. Wilson has a sardonic, occasionally snarky, tone in writing that keeps him from becoming self-righteous. He is earnest in his desire for the reader to understand the real Jesus, not the one churches are misrepresenting through the flash and bang of services catering to every need and interest. Wilson reminds readers of the true message of the Bible: Jesus saves, and everything else is a distraction.
