Jesus + Nothing = Everything is the equation that Tullian Tchividjian took away from a year of great trial and turmoil. He describes the bitter divisions that soured the beginning of his pastorate at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and the personal anchor that he found in the overwhelming power of the gospel. The book of Colossians forms the basis of Tchividjian?s call for Christians to rediscover the gospel and continually reorient their lives around Jesus.

I don't agree with all of the little details, such as how pride is the motivation toward good works (for some of us, it was a heavy sense of legalism that caused me to feel that life was hopeless), but I chose not to let those get in my way.
Whereas I had trouble with Andrew Farley's God without Religion: Can It Really Be This Simple? , Pastor Tchividjian ("pronounced cha-vi-jin") provides comfort beyond measure. Thank you, sir!
Jesus+Nothing=Everything is an critique of man's proclivity to trust in his own ability to save himself. Tullian unpacks well that the "everything" that we often search for in life is "nothing", but that "everything" can only be found in Jesus. Through this he gives us a beautiful picture of the gospel that stirs our hearts and helps us recognize the foolishness of self-reliance. We gain a big picture of God and a small picture of us, and I finished this book loving the gospel in a new way.
Now, this book is nothing new in a long string of gospel books that are currently coming out. Even though this book is well written and holds so many amazing truths, it is merely another book in a list of many. But still I would recommend to pick this up to remind the self-focused heart of the freeing truths of the gospel. Also at times the chapters can become monotonous; Tchividjian hits on the same points several times throughout the book, many chapters could have been shorter.
But overall I recommend this book to any person struggling with self-reliance and understanding the truths of the gospel (which is all of us). No harm can be done to anyone to pick this book up and be stirred in the heart to love God deeper and to serve him more devotedly.
