Western Culture Has Largely Reduced Jesus to Being an Other-Worldly Savior of the Soul Pointing the Way to Heaven. But the Messiah was Far More. Ancient Followers Knew Jesus as One Who Came to Redeem Humanity Physically, Mentally, Spiritually and Culturally.

This book encourages us to shed our stereotypical ways of presenting Jesus to the world and instead get to know Him as He really is. Wholly Jesus addresses much of the language and practices in the church that seem just "not right" in light of scripture. It's been helpful to me in learning to live with the tension of how things are and how they were meant to be, and a challenging call to fulfill His mission to bring wholeness to our broken world. I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about following Jesus, but still haven't found what they're looking for in the church (credit to Bono).
