Through a 40 day devotional setting, Trent Sheppard sets about presenting Jesus in the frame of full humanity. From day-to-day discovering new things and reproaching old truths of the human side of the Son of God.Read more… The back book cover states the full intention of this book for the readers: "come encounter the human who radically transforms our view of God. Come encounter the God who forever changes what it means to be human." Trent does a good job sharing biblical truth and mixing in anecdotal statements and personal stories to bring each day into a setting where the reader could see Jesus walking along side them each step of the day. The goal Trent set out was for the reader to understand that, though Jesus was God, he was also human and was subject to everything we face in life. I read through the book quickly but have decided I will be sitting down and doing it over 40 days as it is intended. The reason for this happens to be what I found most enjoyable in the book - the moments at the end of each chapter. A question to ponder, a prayer to offer and a practice to participate in. Though I enjoyed reading the book, these end of chapter moments brought the book to life for me and had me turning to the next chapter and so on. I would recommend, if you are looking for a new way to see how Jesus relates to your everyday life, to grab this book and spend time contemplating the human side of Jesus, it may just change the way you see God. *I received this book free through "book look bloggers" in exchange for a review. These are my personal thoughts.*
