Product Description

Many of us have memorized the Great Commandment. However, tragically, quite few of us have learned how to live by it. In "The Jesus Creed" Scot McKnight explores how Jesus connected the ancient Jewish commandments to "love the Lord your God with all our heart, soul and strength" and to "love your neighbor as yourself" in order to create a creed that transforms his disciples' lives. If you are passionate about discipleship and love the writings of John Ortberg, Dallas Willard and Richard Foster, you will treasure "The Jesus Creed" by Scot McKnight.

Publisher's Description

Winner of the 2005 Christianity Today Book Award



When an expert in the law asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life: to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also to love others as themselves. Discover how the Jesus Creed of love for God and others can transform your life.

Editorial Reviews

This fascinating book explains that the gospel is about the restoration of "cracked Eikons" (fallen humans) so that humans can be in union with God and in communion with the saints. In the candid and lucid style that has made McKnight's THE JESUS CREED so appealing to thousands of pastors, lay leaders, and everyday people who are searching for a more authentic faith, he encourages all Christians to recognize the simple, yet potentially transforming truth of the gospel message: God seeks to restore us to wholeness not only to make us better individuals, but to form a community of Jesus, a society in which humans strive to be in union with God and in communion with others. Prisim ePistle July 26, 2006

With a degree of theological insight that is refreshingly "meaty," The Jesus Creed is an excellent resource for anyone desiring life-changing, Christ-centered, spiritual growth. CBA Marketplace September 24, 2004

Amid a sea of books on Christian spiritual formation, McKnight brings us a simple, highly readable one focused on the weightiest teaching of Jesus: love God and love others as yourself. . . . McKnight shows great respect for the Jewish heritage of Jesus and offers readers scholarly, yet highly accessible, illustrations of the sociocultural landscape of first century Palestine. Publishers Weekly August 24, 2004&<hr&>

There are few people in the world who both speak well and know what they are talking about. Scot McKnight is one of those people. He blends a great scholarly mind, with a wonderful communicative spirit. In The Jesus Creed this all comes together. Read it, and read it again. Samuel Lamerson, Ph.D., Asst. Professor of New Testament, Knox Theological Semin July 24, 2004

This book is a rare treat. A biblical scholar of the first rank offers the fruit of his own personal study, life experience, and prayerful reflections. It is clearly written, eminently practical, and based on a wide range of sage traditions (Protestant, Catholic and Jewish). One does not have to agree with Scot McKnight in all the particulars to see that he has produced a work of real value. No doubt this book will draw many readers closer to Christ, and more deeply into the wisdom of God's Word. Scott Hahn, Ph.D., Professor of Scripture and Theology, Franciscan University of July 24, 2004&<hr&>

Author/Artist Review

Author: Scot McKnight

Submitted: August 25, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I've been a Professor at North Park University for 10 years; prior to that I was a Professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After working with college students for a short while, I became convinced that they are hungry for spiritual formation materials, and I wanted to ask the question: "What would Jesus say spiritual formation is?" The diversity of my students has led me to explore with them a variety of writers and writings on spiritual formation: from the desert fathers to Augustine to Medieval mystics and classic reformers, as well to more modern writers like Evelyn Underhill, Richard Foster, and John Ortberg.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  An appreciation for the Jewish context of Jesus' understanding of spiritual formation, a grasp of the life and teachings of Jesus, all through the lens of how Jesus modified the Shema (Hear O Israel...).
