Overview

The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others by Scot McKnight

When an expert in the law asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life: to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also to love others as themselves. Discover how the Jesus Creed of love for God and others can transform your life.

The book has a good premise - love God, love your neighbor - but just lacks depth. His ideas about 'the Jesus table' have merit, but again, the author isn't saying anything profound or revelatory. His historical background has little that is new or challenging. The book lacks 'how-tos'. (ie. that's good stuff, now how do I put that into practice?) Seems like a series of sermons done for a congregation that is 'seeker friendly' and not all that mature a Christian audience.
