This isn't your grandma's Jesus. This book is for those who need a Jesus who was:
• a fighter
• a ferocious personality
• a man of fire and courage
• a man who had hell in his blood and mad love in his heart.

This book is for a rare class of athletes: the fiercest and most intense. It is for the lions, the wild horses, and the badasses, who naturally possess the strongest potential for great leadership. Badass Jesus will powerfully challenge your spirituality. Focused on Jesus' core principle rather than all the differing beliefs of Christian churches, Badass Jesus offers a simple new vision of intense faith: Jesus' ethos of extreme self-sacrifice mixed with his 1st and Greatest Commandments of radical, noble love - all dedicated to serving God and changing the world
