Read full description of the books Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary:I have to confess, I didn't like this book at first. The style of writing felt simplistic and the anecdotes felt forced, like the author was just trying too hard to make everything "relevant."
Despite my initial negative feelings about the book, I kept reading. The reason I kept reading is because the author makes much of Jesus. On page after page, J.D. Greear exalts the name and work of Christ and invites his readers to do the same.
I was also drawn to the way Greear offers practical application, all the while avoiding legalism like the plague that it is. That takes serious talent. Either that, or huge portions of grace. From what I read, I am pretty sure the author would say it was the latter.
When I was about halfway through the book, I told a friend of mine not to waste his time reading it. I regret that hasty assessment and will tell my friend so because by the end of the book, I loved Jesus more. Any book that does that, is worth the time to read.
