"Jesus Manifesto" by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola

Lately, it seems as though the gospel has become more about things - doctrines, strategies, rules, formulas - and less about Christ. In Jesus Manifesto, Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola argue that we need to bring the gospel back to what it truly is - Jesus Christ. When we do this, we will have a much more profound experience and as a result, our lives will be transformed.

This book is well-written, concise and thoroughly thought out. The authors make great use of the Bible, history and modern ideas to prove their point. It is obvious that they are fully aware of their audience and the way we are influenced by society and culture.

The footnotes are numerous and the book definitely inspires further reading. The layout itself gives the book a feeling of a devotional. It is written in a way that doesn't just speak at the reader, but makes them an active participant. Most importantly, it is fully focused on Jesus Christ.

Jesus Manifesto is eye-opening and inspiring. It has convinced me to get back to the basics in my daily walk and will do the same for you.

I received this book courtesy of Thomas Nelson Publishers through BookSneeze.com. The above opinions are fully my own.
