Book Review - Jesus Manifesto
I had the pleasure of reading another free book from Thomas Nelson Publishers titled " Jesus Manifesto - Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ " written by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola. The books emphasis is on our relationship with Jesus. He is the alpha and the omega and the true source of everything in the Bible. Perhaps one of the most important and powerful phrases Jesus ever proclaims is " Who do you say I am?" This simple question is one that each Christian might ponder and discern becauses how we answer indicates our relationship with Jesus. Is Jesus the light, the Word, the breath, the everything that makes up our Universe? The authors' questions and proclamations are heavy with the idea that Jesus is in you and me and all of creation. They feel that many Christians have lost their way and don't follow the core values of Christ's message. This book offers another path to understanding Christ. I found the book to be quite enlightening and would suggest this book to all people interested in Christianity.
