Editorial Reviews

Review

Where's Your Jesus Now? is heartbreaking and witty, full of compassion and righteous outrage. It's a fascinating book. -- AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

Karen Zacharias has testified! This book is funny, fierce, and fearless. My stomach hurts from laughing, and my heart aches from finding the truth. -- Doug Crandell, author of Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed and The Flawless Skin of Ugly People

Poignant, funny, and cutting edge, Where's Your Jesus Now? breaks new ground and knocks fundamentalist thought on its rear. -- Michael Morris, author of Slow Way Home

If Karen Spears Zacharias should turn evangelist, the stadium will be full every night. -- Sonny Brewer, author of The Poet of Tolstoy Park

Karen Spears Zacharias craves the Jesus of Hank Williams, Thomas Jefferson, Blind Willie Johnson, and William Blake. In essays bristling with doubt and fear, buoyed by flashes of the brightest hope and splashes of the darkest humor, she grants us the privilege of joining her search party. She almost---almost!---has me convinced He's out there somewhere. -- Jack Pendarvis, author of Awesome and Your Body Is Changing

Candid as all get out, Karen Spears Zacharias knows where Jesus is. In this essential work she prods us from our comfort zone and--mercifully--transports us straight into His arms. -- Sally John, author of A Time to Mend and other novels

The wit and wisdom of Karen Spears Zacharias spoken in a clear, no-holds-barred voice creates a book to be pondered and enjoyed. -- Jackie K Cooper, author of The Bookbinder

With wit and common sense, Where's Your Jesus Now? calls us to live our Christian faith without fear. Karen Spears Zacharias reminds us that if we truly have faith, what should we fear? -- W. Ralph Eubanks, author of Ever Is a Long Time: A Journey Into Mississippi's Dark Past

Witty, brave, and bold, Zacharias dares to ask the tough question for the right reason: to affirm that Jesus is far more than many of his fear-driven followers believe He is. In a world that has cheapened God, this is the right book at the right time. It cuts to the cultural chase like the words of Brennan Manning and Oswald Chambers, challenging us while encouarging us. And Zacharias does so with a humble heart, a discerning pair of eyes, and an engaging style. Where's Your Jesus Now? has the power to change the way we all look at God. This is not only a good book, it's the most important book I've read in years. -- Bob Welch, award-winning author, columnist and speaker. --Endorsements

"Witty, intelligent and a poignant analysis of organized religion today---pungent manna for thought." -- Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump

The other reviews about the book being witty, smart and more are totally accurate. But I really want to share a couple other things about Spears Zacharias's writing. For one, she doesn't pretend to have all the answers. The book poses many questions for my own mind to mull over, but her wisdom led me to several answers and tips I could use in my own life to overcome my irrational fears. Secondly, and the only reason I didn't give this book a five-star rating, is that it poses some questions about Christianity and theory that may not be theologically accurate. However, she doesn't state that her views are fact; she clearly states them as her opinions.

Format: Hardcover
Karen Spears Zacharias confronts fear in her book Where's Your Jesus Now?, but does so with a fist in the air. Spears Zacharias writes in a familiar Southern drawl that disarms readers, but make no mistake--she means business.

The book focuses on how fear can eat away at the foundation of faith, making life a nightmare. She examines many real-life stories of people who have overcome--and some that have succumbed to--fear.

But the theme hovering over all of these stories is that Christians shouldn't be ruled by fear. Faith in Jesus is what offers relief from the fear that living in a dangerous, violent world often brings. Spears Zacharias does a great job of illustrating that in this book that is fun to read, but is deep in its own special way.

Format: Hardcover
After reading an interesting front half of the book, the back half seemed to change tone and turn into something different--like slamming Christians. No doubt the author made some valid points, but something seemed to sour in her tone. I ended up not really understanding the purpose of her book.

I would have given 2.5 stars, an averaging of the front and back half of the book. However, Amazon would not allow me to give a half star.

Karen Spears Zacharias's WHERE'S YOUR JESUS NOW? is like a hot summer porch of faith, love, and friendship. Told with candor and courage, Zacharias shares stories of faith and joy - both her own and the people she meets. She does it with tremendous grace and humor and makes us all feel a little more connected along the way.

I've been a faithful reader of Karen Spears Zacharias's work for years and she never disappoints. I chose "Where's Your Jesus Now?" for my book club and we enjoyed a delightful telephone conversation with Karen during our discussion. Zacharias's honesty about her fears and questions is refreshing in the realm of Christian books. What a relief for someone not to have all the answers and admit it! Whether you agree or disagree with what she writes, her style is so warm and endearing you can't help but wish you could meet her for lunch to shoot the breeze. "Where's Your Jesus Now?" is a must-read for anyone who grapples with fear and needs someone who's been there to lend a hand.

Karen has a quick wit and a fast draw. She is very straight forward with her beliefs and her short comings. This is a book that every pastor,sunday school teacher, actually anyone who claims to be a christian should read.It shows our fears (prejudices) and how much we not only let them run and ruin our lives, but we don't want to stop there, we want to teach those same fears to our children and anyone else that will listen.Karen points out the real strenght of faith in her stories on a been there done that level. Very refreshing in this day and age. I highly recommend this work to all who want to advance in their faith and their walk with God
