Thomas Nelson The Jesus of Suburbia: Have We Tamed the Son of God to Fit Our Lifestyle? - eBook

What if everything you've grown up knowing about Jesus is wrong? Mike Erre believes that we have lost the real Jesus right in the middle of Christian prayer meetings, Bible studies, and worship services. "We have never really embraced the message and movement of Jesus Christ as a call to revolution," he writes. "Instead, we have gotten comfortable with a watered-down, white-washed, religiously safe version of him."

The Jesus of Suburbia paints a disturbing picture of an imitation Jesus many have been taught to worship and one that little resembles the revolutionary, life-transforming Jesus of Nazareth. It asks whether we want to be swept up by the real Jesus into a culture-impacting movement of God, or are we satisfied with merely living for comfort and financial success in the status quo. But take notice---Jesus' real revolution isn't for the faint of heart or the middle of the road. It's not safe and certainly not comfortable.

this is a book every christian who feels frustrated with the authenticity of their relationship with Christ NEEDS TO READ. J. Erre has undeniably described the way back to biblical woship and reintroduces us to Jesus in a way that made me commit to the zeal and awe I had when I first became a believer.

The answer to the question in the subtitle is a resounding YES! and Erre explains how. There is no more important question for the follower of Christ than, "Am I following the real Jesus or some counterfeit?" This book identifies the phony in our midst. Read it before the poser leads you too far astray.

Very good, serious look at the modern "church" of today. It will open your eyes to some things that perhaps you may have been sensing, but couldn't put a name to like me. Things like feeling unfulfilled or just plain bored with the so called modern "Christian life."

I loved this book...highly recommended!It is honest talk about Christians and churchs today. If you believe that you are truly a new creation in Christ and that our walk is not based on performance I think you will find this book to be a great encouragement.
