Many Christians share a secret. Few of us dare to speak it out loud, because doing so would feel like taking a slap at Godand it wouldnt make us look good either. Yet this secret is affecting us painfully on the inside every single day.
Here it is: Believing in Jesus has left us disappointed.
At one point we were thrilled and hopeful about living a life of trusting in Christ. But over time our experience has failed to live up to our expectations or make the difference we thought it would. So weve begun to think: This cant be all there is to being a Christian.
If thats what youve been thinking . . . youre right.
No Easy Jesus holds the key to moving forward when youre bored, disillusioned, and beaten down by faith-as-usual. Its a clarion challenge to wake up each day and choose Jesus all over again; to make the tough, gritty choices that align your way with His and lead to true fullness of life. Because when you decided to follow Jesus, you didnt sign up for what was easiestyou signed up for what was best.

Amanda5 Stars Out Of 5highly recommendedJanuary 20, 2018AmandaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The cover was the first thing I noticed about this book because it looked different and I was curious. I really liked reading this book because it was well written, relatable, and inspiring for a person like me because I want more from my walk with Christ but don't always feel like I'm doing everything I could be. Filled with several relatable antidotes, this book is a good one.
MikeAlexandria, INAge: 45-54Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Getting out of your comfort zoneFebruary 22, 2017MikeAlexandria, INAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Jason Mitchell's book, No Easy Jesus: How the Toughest Choices Lead to the Greatest Life, was a very easy to read and very good book. He begins by asking some very simple rhetorical questions. The same questions apply to you and I. Do we believe in eating right and exercising? Most of us would say yes. The same holds true for the question - - about our belief in Jesus. We know faith is more than simply believing with head knowledge. We are called to follow Jesus.
Mitchell has broken the book down into 10 chapters - which are calls in our lives to let go of the good life and follow Jesus, so we can experience the great life. At times this book hit home because we have all bought into the idea of living the comfortable life. But Mitchell wants us to move beyond the comfortable . . . and those become the very difficult life choices which create life change. Living the easy life, the so-called satisfied life is not necessarily the best life. In fact, it usually is not the best life.
Jesus has promised us we can live the abundant life, but we choose the life of less than, and we become depressed and disappointed life has not turned out better for us. He uses personal examples and stories to help the reader better identify with him. He uses additional illustrations and stories to help make his points.
Overall, this is an easy to read book which may help someone move off their comfortable chair, and become invested in life.
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
Gini4 Stars Out Of 5No Easy Jesus: How the Toughest Choices Lead to the Greatest LifeFebruary 15, 2017GiniQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Mitchell approaches one of the saddest parts of church life---boredom, disappointment, disillusionment and although he doesnt use the word, dechurching. He traces this situation that describes many more than will admit it aloud to accepting a belief in Jesus that had no relationship with life. The here and now stuff we experience every day. He says of his own life that he realized he had settled for an easy Jesus. a Jesus who didnt ask to much of methe promise of eternal life in heaven but conveniently left me alone in this life. (23-24). After struggling with that revelation, he concluded that, Yes, we need to believe in order to have faith. But at some point our faith in Jesus must blossom into faithfulness to Jesus if we are interested in growing as followers of Jesus. (25) Theres the premise of this book. The rest is the how-to stuff that leads to a life anything but boring, disappointing or disillusioned.
I found the book engaging and easy to follow. His illustrations are not fluff situations. They are the hard stuff that will challenge and require more than a few platitudes. So, if youre ready to move from the bored, etc. group into something that is real this book might be one to read through. Mitchell leads gently but firmly through his writing. No guilt trip stuff here. Simple, straightforward narrative that allows the reader to decide what if anything he desires to include in his own life.
There have been many books lately that approach this subject, but this one is just different enough to deserve some consideration. Check it out and see what you think.
I received this book from the publishers in return for a review.
