Book Review: Jesus is_________

Book Review: Jesus is_________

I first listened to Judah Smith’s message when he preached in Hillsong Church London and I clearly remember thinking “Wow! This dude is an amazing teacher…and hilarious too.” So when I had the opportunity to read and review his book. I jumped at it…and was not disappointed.

Jesus is_________ introduces the reader to Jesus, serves as an encouragement to forge a personal relationship with Jesus and define Him in our own words and not by conventional definition. He highlights the need to understand the love of God and who Jesus is behind the law.

I am a bit biased though; the book cover alone scored 2 points out of 5…just because I love colours and creativity. The content is mind blowing, bringing the pure, undiluted message of Jesus to all.

I love the humorous introduction; it puts the reader at ease and casts light on the ridiculousness of stereotyping. He takes the reader through the history of the concept of the book and boy, what an interesting story it is. Although he is somewhat effervescent, he points out his respect for the viewpoints of others and expects the same respect be accorded him.

Judah gently guides the reader to the realisation that we need a focal point in our lives and as Christians Jesus ought be just that, the focal point of our lives. He summarises Jesus life mission as finding and helping nemo the lost and that made me characterise Jesus as the finder (I actually wrote in my note that Jesus is the finder). 

After reading the book, I realised that it was necessary for me to fill the blank space in the book and after much mulling and re-reading my notes, I concluded that Jesus is the revelation of the Father…and much more. Simples.
