There are too many Jesuses running rampant in the world today.
Culture has introduced us to Hippie Jesus, Postcard Jesus, and Get-out-of-hell-free Jesus. There's also Grammy Award Jesus, Therapist Jesus, Role Model Jesus, and Buddy Jesus.
The question is: which one do you worship?
He may be the most popular, the most cited, the most admired, and the most controversial figure in all of history, but Jesus is more than a generic brand, a logo, or a pick-me-up. He has been fictionalized, humanized, satirized, and romanticized. And yet he still isn't recognized.
Author Jared C. Wilson cuts through the glossy, modern perceptions of Jesus to rediscover the original and raw person who confronted the religious status quo and changed the world. Sometimes controversial, sometimes humorous, but always truthful, Your Jesus Is Too Safe challenges readers to leave behind their feel-good Savior and embrace the true and living Christ.
Open this book and take a closer look at who Jesus really is.
Jared C. Wilson is the pastor and cofounder of Element, a missional Christian community in Nashville, Tennessee. He has been a minister and a freelance writer for more than a decade. Wilson has received the Award for Excellence from the National Council of Teachers of English, and an honorable mention from the Conference of Christianity and Literature. He lives outside of Nashville with his wife and two daughters.
I really enjoyed this book, enlightening, and comforting. Jesus is our Lord and Saviour.
