Jesus Is____: Student Edition - Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

n Jesus Is _______. Student Edition, popular speaker, author, and former youth pastor Judah Smith reveals the character of Jesus and the importance of Christ’s message. Adapted for a student’s age and life experience, this compelling book will get younger readers thinking about what Jesus means to them.

Judah Smith, pastor of the City Church in Seattle, Washington, is a former youth minister. He understands kids and writes to as if to a friend. With enthusiasm and humor, Smith shows that Jesus is life, Jesus is grace, and Jesus is your friend. The student edition includes new content for younger readers ages 10–14—humorous lists, callouts of key text, sidebars with additional information, and discussion questions. This is a book for kids who have grown up in the church, are new to faith in Jesus, or are seeking to know more. This book will allow students to grow with Jesus from a young age and to know that the point of life is having a real, honest relationship with Jesus.

My Review:

If there's any Christian-based book you read this year, make it Jesus Is_______.  Although this book is geared towards tweens and teens, I read the book myself and it spoke strongly to my spirit.  Author Judah Smith has written a book that isn't dogged down with dry speakings.  Rather, he clearly explains how we should view Jesus and how He views us.  Jesus Is ____ doesn't tell us how bad we are as sinners, but how good we are because of Jesus' grace and mercy. 

I can count on one hand the number of times my husband has picked up a book and read it through.  Before he was even past the second chapter, Jason couldn't wait to tell me how good this book is.  He's even written down a few of the passages to share with his men's group.  Jesus Is _______ gives readers a renewed hope and spirit by pointing out the ways that Jesus cares for is and is always with us.


Win It!
