It is a free chapter from the book, Jesus Manifesto, written by Frank Viola and Leonard Sweet. It reveals Christ in a very unique way and is directly related to what we have been discussing on this blog the last while.
Here is the description of the book from the website for a bit of context:
Christians have made the gospel about so many things—things other than Christ. Religious concepts, ideas, doctrines, strategies, methods, techniques, programs, and formulas have all eclipsed the beauty, the glory, and the reality of the Lord Jesus Himself. On the whole, the Christian family today is starved for a real experience of the living Christ. We know a lot about our Lord, but we don’t know Him very well. We know a lot about trying to be like Jesus, but very little about living by His indwelling life. “Jesus Manifesto” presents a fresh unveiling of Jesus as not only Savior and Lord, but as so much more. It is a prophetic call to restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ in a world—and a church—that has lost sight of Him. Read this book and see your Lord like you’ve never seen Him before.
I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It reveals Christ on every page and really brings one back to the cornerstone of Christianity again. If you like this free chapter, you will LOVE the book. So give it a read and let the Lord speak to your heart. And if you like it enough and would like to get your hands on the book, let me know and I will point you in the right direction.
I’m still very much enjoying the fellowship on this blog. Thanks for all the comments and collaborations. You all make this blog what it is! Enjoy going deeper into the revelation of Christ as your source of life.
