The Gospel According To Jesus by Chris Seay

Book Description

True Christianity is about restoring what is broken. The majority of Christians don't truly understand the true meaning of the word righteousness. Many believe it to be more about our behavior or attempts to abstain from sin.  Pastor Chris Seay (Ecclesia Bible Society) says that Jesus came to bring light into darkness.
True Christianity does not focus as much on the 'What Not To Do' as it does on how Jesus would treat others. God offers restoration to those who are broken and hurting and personal spiritual transformation for those who follow Christ.

Jesus met people where they are rather than demanding they clean up their act first. Actually, he was much harsher on those considered to be the religious or successful. He certainly did not shy away from the ones who were considered to lower rung of society.

Chris Seay, in this thought-provoking book calls upon each of us to consider our actions and reactions. Do we make an effort to treat others as Jesus sees them. He reached out to those who were most in need of a Savior. He brought a redeeming gospel of restoration that our world desperately needs.

Sprinkled with prayers, statistics, insights from some of his distinguished contemporaries, and some compelling drawings, this is a book that that I recommend to all who are trying to follow the rules rather than reach out to others. This definitely preaches the message that we are to act and serve rather than react with revulsion toward those we perceive to be different. If you want to know about transforming lives...including your own...and restoration, then The Gospel According To Jesus is a must-read.
