Jesus Manifesto

I was very eager to read this book, Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Christ. However, I was disappointed once I began to read it. I was all ready to read some life changing words about making Jesus supreme in our lives. This book did not deliver. It was tedious and repetitive. There were quite a few good sentences that really hit home, but other than that I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over. The author’s goal was to awaken hearts to focus solely on Jesus, not on His teachings, or His ethics, but on Him alone.

There isn’t really much for me to review other than to say, that the authors could’ve said what it wanted to say in about half the pages. While the concept and point of the book is great, the actual book, isn’t. It was a difficult read. It felt like sitting through a long lecture in college. I wish I could’ve given a better review.
