Overview

Can you imagine thumbing through your daily mail and finding a letter from Jesus Christ? Not a prank, not a hoax, but the genuine article - a letter from heaven, from the risen Lord, written personally to you and your church. If hearing from God sounds intriguing, then this little book is for you. Several decades after His death, burial, resurrection and ascension, Jesus revealed Himself, in a vision from heaven, to the apostle John. Jesus directed John to write as He dictated seven letters to seven communities of faith scattered around Asia Minor. These personal notes are found in Revelation chapters two and three. In Sincerely, Jesus we will look at the amazing relevance each letter holds for life in the twenty-first century. All Jesus asks of us is to read with a listening heart and a willingness to make the adjustments, both in our personal lives, and in our churches, that the Holy Spirit prescribes.

“Reading ‘Sincerely, Jesus,’ I am reminded of my experience with my first exposure to the non-fiction of C. S. Lewis. Ed keeps leading me to perspectives that I had never considered about things I thought I understood – and he does it in a way that keeps me wanting to read "just one more chapter".
 After exposure to Ed's "rubber hits the road" emphasis on scripture, I most definitely view the entire Bible from a different – and wonderful – perspective. It is more personal. Ed hits you where you live. Most importantly, he reminds me that the Bible was written to and for me, to better understand Jesus and the actual implications of what that means to me personally. That is something I take with me into my daily life long after I have finished reading.”
- Robert Wells, Seattle, WA

“As I read ‘Sincerely, Jesus’ I almost feel as if I'm back in the first century, sitting among a gathering of believers, listening to the old apostle John as he carefully and clearly reads a letter Jesus had written to the church. I can almost hear those around me discussing each word with reverence and attention. A powerful scene. Yes, I wish I could have been there, but I thank God that His Words are just as meaningful today.”
- George Gates, Spring Hill, TN

“Although good for everyone, I believe ‘Sincerely Jesus’, will empower church leadership and pastors to remember their calling and remind them why they do what they do.”
- Belinda Kee, Corning, CA

    A reviewer

    I think that it is amazing how the Author Edward Goble can take a passage out of one of the most unstudied books of the Bible (Revelation) and bring it alive. It is an easy to understand and easy to relate to book because it truly embodies God's heart and love for His people and His church.

    An outstanding look at Revelation

    A remarkable look into the book of Revelation. This books helps us to see how much love Jesus has for us today. The author helps us to grasp Revelation,a book that may be hard for some to understand, or even attempt to understand. A must read for all who are in church leadership.

    Great Perspective on Revelation

    I took a chance on "Sincerely Jesus" and found this book to be very readable and understandable on scriptures that can be daunting for even the more "Bible educated" readers. I used it as a daily devotion and found myself not wanting to stop reading. I would suggest anyone wanting to have an explanation on Revelation read this book.

    To know Jesus as your first love!

    This book uses scripture and self examination to help us rediscover our first and one true love. Follow Jesus as if he were our spouse. It is a lovely book which is uplifting and Jesus tells us in every word of his love for us and that we are his friends if we follow his ways. He also corrects our faults and puts us on the right path if we truly listen to him with our hearts. I recommend this book to everyone but most especially to anyone looking for a love letter from our one and only true love JESUS!

    Great book...a must read!!!!!

    This is a great look at the letters in the book of Revelations!! Especially since I am interested in exploring my faith further, this book is helping me understand God's message in a clearer light. I love this book and was the perfect thing for me to choose after listening to the sermon "Love Story" by Ivor Myers. I would recommend this book in a heartbeat and I hope you will find it as inspiring as I have. :)

    Best book I have read this year!

    I have never particularly enjoyed the book of Revelation and quite frankly might not have read this book if I had known that the book was based on the 7 letters to the churches spoken of in Revelation. HOWEVER, I am so glad the first.letter is about first love. I was hooked from page 1 on. I found this book to be so full of revelation (no pun intended) and rich in truth, that it is one of the few books I will reread a second time. I highly recommend this book to those longing for the awkening of their first love and the refining fire of God's love.

    Wonderful message!

    This book helped me to better understand the kind or life Jesus wants me to live and also the kind of relationship he wants to have with me. The author used many bible versus to make his point which helped me to believe the message. Excellent free book which is worth your time reading :)

    Seriously! This book is depressing

    According to the letters from"Jesus" he chooses to HATE certain people ,condemn and kill children , and angrily smite those who dont agree with his narrow views. Anger is 1 of the deadly sins and Jesus is w/o sin! That is NOT the Jesus Ive known and loved all my life. We're suppossed to accept one anothers differences, help eachother and try to be decent in spite of all the ugly in this world undrrstanding in spite of all the ugly in this world.

    Truly a blessing

    This book takes Revelation and breaks down truths in scripture that are to be applied in daily life, often times the book of Revelation is not associated with God's love, but his wrath. This book proves otherwise. God's love radiates from "In the beginning" all the way to "Amen". Great and beneficial read!

    To the athiest. -amy

    Honey sorry to burst your little bubble there but there is definately a god. You cant possibly explain life itself without god. He is such a huge part of my life that no words can explain it. Your life isnt just one huge coincidence. There is reason behind everything. Like the day i met my husbsnd. I was taking my dad a lunch to his work when i was 16 years old. Im now 27. If i had been even one minute late, me and this guy would had never of gotten into a wreck, we would had never started talkin and we would had never fell in love. Also with my son. If the doctors hadnt gotten him out of me when they did, he would not be here. God brought me my son for a reason. I was 25 and i was at a bad part of my life and when the doctors told me that my son wasnt breathing and that the chances of him living were very slim, it changed my life. God is definately real. I dont care if you dont believe but i know that he is real. And someday i will be with him. If my story doesnt change your life i hope it at least changes someone elses and helps them realize ttat God is here for you no matter what. And, even when your really down and you feel like nobody loves you, dont forget that He loves you.

    The missing piece LOVE

    LOVE........Never the less I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
    GOD was not talking about your Love life, but your Life's love, not your first relationship, but the relationship that was first. Your relationship with Jesus Christ . John3:16
