Book Review - Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ by Leonard Sweet & Frank Viola
Are you tired of surface spirituality?
Suffering from Jesus Deficit Disorder?
The authors of Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ will challenge you to shift your focus from the superficial to the Ultimate Question:
“It is not, “Are you ready to accept leadership status in My church?”
It is not, “Do you know how to build a movement?”
It is not, “How many people did you lead to Me?”
It is not, “Is leadership your passion?”
It is not, “To whom will you be accountable?”
It is not, “Are you doing better than the best you can do so God will be happy with you?”
And it is not, “Will you surround yourself with people who have leadership potential and will make you look good?” The question is only this: “Do you love Me?”’
Filled with the words of Christ, quotes from theologians (old and new) and timeless hymns, this book is written in an ancient devotional style. With chapters such as “If God Wrote Your Biography” and “His Face or Your Face?”, you will be encouraged to draw closer to Christ.
I really enjoyed the easy to read, yet thought provoking chapters. It is a great way to refocus from all of the ‘happy’ talk to the deep, meaningful Gospel that we all crave.
