"Jesus Loves You..." is a simple book, and I mean that in the best way possible. The authors take you on a journey of how and why Jesus makes such a difference in their life and why they believe He would make a difference to you.
These guys are more than just words though, they actually live it. As Craig puts it "So, as you read this book, don't assume that because two pastors wrote it, we are your typical Sunday morning TV preachers. We aren't. We spend most of our time outside the church with unchurched people. We don't care if they are people who can't pay their cable bill or people who perform for videos that show up on late-night cable." These guys are actually out in community, out with real people of all thoughts and lifestyles - with the kind of people Jesus got criticized for hanging out with. Especially in Craig's case, where the church often does either nothing with sex or pornography in hopes that by not talking about it that it will just go away - or they go they other way and constantly preach sermons berating people about it, ostracize and kick people out who struggle or reveal a hint of struggle, but never engage and help the men (and women) who are fighting through it.
This book is about how deeply Jesus loves everyone and the examples in Craig and Jason's lives of how God is working that out through them and their ministries. The book though is certainly not one of "everything is all good and do whatever you feel like doing", but it is about loving people where they are at and hoping that someday people will see the love and grace that Jesus offers - and let it into their lives.
"Doesn't matter what you do or who you are: Jesus. Loves. You." (page 16)
That's the book - simple, but so important and so true.
"Jesus Loves You this I Know" is a refreshingly simple book but with a hugely powerful message. The message of Jesus' love is one that breathes, no matter who you are or what you've done, you are loved. With the greatest of all commandments in the Bible on their side, Gross and Harper bring this "love" to a world thirsty for acceptance... through their own stories and experiences with the least of these.
I recommend this book to the porn addict, the porn star, the accountant cheating on his wife, the woman with an eating disorder, the teenage girl cutting herself, the teenage guy struggling with homosexuality and to the megachurch pastor who is losing faith. Jesus loves you and the message of this book will bring some light to the dark place you're in right now.
God so loved the world that He gave His only Son; our message to the world must be: God loves. But we are so used to the fact that God loves us that we ignore it in our witness of Him. They try to get the Church back to the truth of how Jesus lived and loved. Their (valid) argument is that Jesus wouldn't be the protester outside of the porn convention, the bar, or the gay parade; He'd be living among people showing them His love and drawing them unto Himself. Gross and Harper understand that the Gospel offends while stressing that we don't have to be more offensive than the Gospel already is.
I would offer some caution though. Harper's chapters are slightly off at some points. He talks about how Jesus was found guilty for loving. Jesus did love the unlovable but that wasn't the cause of His crucifixion. Harper later corrects this by speaking of Christ's claims to deity being the reason why He was crucified. I was also left wondering about the people in the stories they told. They would talk about how they have reached out in community and loved the unlovable. But then they would occasionally drop off with seldom mention of a call to repentance. I don't mean that I was looking for one of them to lead a homosexual in the "sinners prayer", but, at some point while in community we must fulfill the Great Commission and make disciples.Read more ›
