ReJesus helped put words to the feeling I get when I walk into many mainstream contemporary Christian churches: “I wonder what Jesus would think of this?” (I wrote a while back about feeling the same way about the 700 Club). Here is what I mean.

A few months ago, the BF and I went to see the Dead Sea Scrolls at a local church. I knew about this church (it’s enormous), but I’d never actually been. The BF has attended the church before, and said it felt like being at a church informercial. I quickl
I had no idea what to expect. This book took me a long time to go through because of the content and the time it took to digest. It is one of the best books I've read this year and probably most influential. I recommend it to anyone!
To me this is the best book Hirsch & Frost have written together apart from "Shaping". I believe every church "leader" should read this book and re-engage the Jesus of the Scriptures. Until then, he/she should not teach about Jesus.

An excellent book for those frustrated with modern "Christianity" and anyone who seeks to get back to the simplicity of Jesus.
Roger Sigmon
Great reminder not to water down the story of the Real Jesus and his missional and radical life.
Compelling look at following Jesus rather than getting caught up in lifeless religion.

I really liked this book. Stressed the life of Jesus as the model of faith.

Excellent. Don't read it too fast like i did.
i've just read the first forty pages, the authors are a bit dismissive of conservative Christians.

the people that recommend it are apparently doing so out of friendship, a usual thing for blurbs but i wish "Christian" authors would be different. one of the raves is from someone the book is dedicated to. haven't looked through the book enough to know if other blub writers are mentioned in the text.

i enjoyed much of this book, frustrated by some, my copy is now scrawled thruout w/my thoughts.

If you've read any books in the realm of "emergent" or "missional" genre then this won't blow you away; however, it is full of great insight and encouragement into what it means to be a church of little Jesus'.
Es ist immer wieder gut, an die Grundlagen erinnert zu werden.
