Review: The Bad Habits of Jesus by:Leonard Sweet
About the Book:
Did Jesus have bad habits?
In our culture, we have a tendency to describe Jesus in ways that soften his revolutionary edge. Len Sweet uncovers and presents to us the offensive and scandalous Jesus described in the Bible.
Did he disappear when people needed him most? Yes. Did he refuse to answer questions directly? Yes. Did Jesus offend the people of his day? Absolutely, yes.
Popular author and speaker Len Sweet examines the words and actions of Jesus and places them in context. We need to understand who Jesus really is if we are to follow him wholeheartedly. That is why it is so crucial to see the "rebellious rabbi" for who he is and not for who we may imagine him to be.
The Bad Habits of Jesus will help you see the untamed Jesus, who isn't sanitized for our culture. That Jesus just might transform how you live out your life.
Jesus was a revolutionary icon of His time. But to me He still is and always has been. He took a culture that was sure to go to hell and transformed it. Did He have doubters? Yes! Haters, even. But He did not let them stop Him for what He was destined to do. In this day and time it is very difficult to complete the thing that God has called many of us to do. He was the best! And still is!
Leonard Sweet takes a look into all that He accomplished while walking the earth and everything He still accomplishes. We need to take a real, good, hard look at Him without rose colored glasses. Jesus was raw and real in a time when everything around us is fake and confused we are a country in desperate need of the real, rawness that Jesus is.
The Bad Habits of Jesus is a great look into the life of a man that most admire from afar. The realness He was and still is, is in a word perfection and what we should strive to be especially in today's world.
