Are there even questions inthere if so please tell me them thats what people want. Cathlic i think ud like this book any ways praise the lord!
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.
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".
