Publisher's Description

Why It's Hard To Love Jesus takes a close look at the story in Luke 7 describing Simon the Pharisee and a sinful woman who anoints Jesus with expensive oil. When we're confronted with the reality of Jesus, do we remain indifferent and religious like Simon the Pharisee or do we fall at His feet in adoring worship like the woman who had been forgiven much? Joseph Stowell challenges Christians to honestly probe the answer to this penetrating question.

    I first read this book several years ago under the title of Loving Christ. This book should be read by every believer at least once a year. Very relevant and practical for believers at every stage of the Christian walk. Get this book!

    This is an excellent book. It will make you ponder about what it really means to love Jesus, and whether or not you are really doing you best to honor Him with your life.

    The subtitle should be "Why it's hard to read this book". Dr. Stowell does another outstanding job laying the hard questions at the feet of his reader. Stowell unpacks the Luke 7 story and gives the reader an unpleasant reality check. He then calls us to abandon religion and embrace the relationship.
