What If Jesus Was Serious? A visual guide to the teachings of Jesus we love to ignore - Skye Jethani
If Jesus was serious... then why don't we take Him more seriously?
Compare Jesus' teachings to a quick survey of how Christian's live, and one thing becomes apparent: we often ignore much of what He says. Skye Jethani exposes this problem through a deep examination of Christ's longest lesson of ethical teaching: the Sermon on the Mount.
Skye illustrates how we explain away elements of this crucial sermon to stay comfortable and justify disobedience. Each brief reflection will challenge you to rethink assumptions and apply Jesus' teachings to today's cultural realities. If Christians begin taking Jesus seriously, we may find that the rest of the world will too.
