The Jesus Life, by Stephen W. Smith

ImageNo matter how long we have been a disciple of Jesus it is important to periodically revisit the basics.  It is easy for even the most committed believer to drift into a variety of unhealthy spiritual habits. We all need to take the time to reflect on where we are and why we are doing the things we do. This book serves that purpose well – a refresher course of sorts. In fact, this book would be a very useful orientation guide for new believers as well.

You won’t find anything off-the-wall, nor – on the other hand – will you find the author pulling his punches on what it really means to walk the way of Jesus. You will encounter some old, but seldom taught ‘ways’ of Jesus. Many notions will be familiar, yet expressed and illustrated in fresh and simple terms.

Probably most rewarding are the ‘between the lines’ insights into the life of Jesus. Smith explores the many ways of Jesus that can’t be read as commands in scripture, but have been gleaned from meditating on the whole of His life. We often prefer a list of things to believe rather than a life to live, but that’s not what this book is all about.

Enjoy. Be blessed.
