Overview

What if we let Jesus ask the questions?



More books have been written about Jesus than any other historical figure. Many of these books ask and answer questions about Jesus. Would we get a different picture of Jesus if we allowed him to ask the questions?



Covering nearly three hundred questions recorded in the New Testament under twenty-six separate themes, All That Jesus Asks uncovers who Jesus is by examining what was important to him and what he wants us to believe. This unique and comprehensive look at the greatest figure in history will encourage and challenge you--and it just might change your life.



"Stan Guthrie is one of the most incisive writers I read. I'm always informed and challenged by his thinking."--Jerry B. Jenkins, novelist; owner, Christian Writers Guild



"All That Jesus Asks slices through the fog of culture and history to place us in an uncomfortable but privileged seat at the feet of Jesus as he teaches and confronts those who would follow him--or challenge him. You will find Jesus's questions to be both spiritually inspiring and unsettling."--Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview



"Atheists attempt to put Christians on the defensive by questioning the authority and goodness of God. This book turns the tables by allowing Jesus to ask the questions. All That Jesus Asks will touch your head and your heart. I highly recommend it."--Dinesh D'Souza, author, What's So Great about Christianity



"Stan Guthrie leads us into a deeper look at Christ's humanity, authority, and mission. In All That Jesus Asks, you will discover the rugged truth about Christ and what that truth asks of you."--Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center



"Guthrie's book is a landmark. I urge you to buy it and read it again and again."--J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

    A revolutionary and fresh look at who Jesus Christ is

    Just who is Jesus, and why should I follow Him? I thought I had the answers to those questions down pat until reading Stan Guthrie's 'All That Jesus Asks'. This book is the best apologetic on the Person of Jesus Christ that I have read in years, maybe ever. Combining tight journalistic prose with thoughtful contemplation, Guthrie employs Jesus Christ's own techniques of story-telling and asking leading questions to teach truth. Specifically, Guthrie uses the questions Jesus himself asked of disciples, followers, political leaders, even enemies to lay out the fundamentals of just who is this Man from Galilee, why it matters, and what our relationship should be to him. Personal anecdotes from Guthrie's own life and input from many of today's top Christian voices bring alive Gospel accounts written two thousand years ago to a twenty-first century readership. None of which captures just how reading this book impacted my own heart and life. In short, as one more Christian weary of the institutional church and superficial religion, I encountered afresh in these pages the Jesus Christ who revolutionized my own life, and for that alone I find myself recommending this book again and again. A must-read for anyone wanting to know better the biblical Jesus.

    A Book of Exploring the Essence of Jesus' Words

    I was totally engaged while reading this book by Stan Guthrie. What an amazing premise he brings - a challenge to his readers to potentially deepen our relationship with Jesus by looking at the questions He spoke as recorded in Scripture. I met that challenge as I read, "All That Jesus Asks".

    Jesus questions are familiar to me but many became "new". And ever "new" they should remain to any of us seeking to grow in our ongoing journey with Christ.

    Stan brought excellent resources to this masterfully crafted work. First. he brought his passion and personal walk as a Christian. He shared openly the realities from his own life and how Jesus' questions have challenged and deepened his faith.

    Stan's exceptional career as a journalist makes him a credible writer to tackle this type of book. Themes are structured in a way that prompts the reader to investigate and reflect as the flow of Jesus' questions builds in the context of each section.

    Stan's knowledge of Scripture and his insights garnered from reading other writers who were/are devoted to understanding their Christian journey add dimension to this book's goal. At times, I found my own relationship with Christ eloquently expressed and affirmed. Conversely, Stan does not shy away from bringing in quotes from writers in controversy with Christianity or those within the Christian arena who beg the reader to look carefully at the rhetoric of interpretation.

    It is a book about God's love in sending His Son to complete a redemptive work on the Cross. It is a book that causes the reader to dig deeply into the Son's words, renewing the essence of what that love means to the reader as an individual. It is a book about living as a Christian of influence in the world. Ultimately, it is an encounter with the One who will always woo us into wholehearted relationship with Him.

    Study questions end each chapter. I can see this book as a dynamic resource for church groups. Stan's bibliography is extensive prompting further exploration and/or study for readers who want "more".
