The format of the book is very accessible- it's easy to pick up and read a section or two every day (although I read it all in one sitting!) The quotes throughout are highly enjoyable and add to the overall reading experience- I love how varied they are. One second Ms. Scarborough is using Jesus' very words to instruct how to incorporate parables into your everyday and the next she's using David Letterman's "Top 10" list as an example of how to use fresh images and new vocabulary to make your words a reflection of YOU.
On the whole- great, helpful, thoroughly enjoyable book.
Her creative breakdown of the aspects of the success of Jesus, as a public speaker, are a unique look at details Bible readers have taken for granted or overlooked altogether. This book would be beneficial for pastors and church leaders to read. It's full of advice and wisdom regarding relationships and dealing with large groups of people who need information. Scarborough's discipleship is obvious in the historic details and doctrinal stance she takes. This is a fairly meaty look at Christ and His followers.
On the flip side. Non-religious folks, especially those in the public eye, should be able to find much wisdom in the simplistic way that Jesus handled many diverse situations. I can't imagine that this is same old, same old teaching. And at worst it would be a good refresher or a different angle on the basics.
Scarborough is amusing and shares much of her own personal experiences to underscore the teaching. Occasionally the humor gets a little cheesy, but cheesy sometimes makes the best point.
