Item description for Jesus for Adults: The Search for Meaning and Purpose by Linda Rios Brook...
Overview Surveys have shown that most Christians do not know the Bible and do not believe what little they do know. One reason is because so much of the adult Bible education material available continues to teach grown up people using the same images, cliches and westernized interpretation used to teach children. Jesus for Adults examines the motives and personalities of the people who interacted with Jesus. It is written not so much for people who have already formed their belief system and need no further discussion, but for people who desperately want to believe, but who cannot be satisfied with the easy "Sunday School" answers that contradict their experience and understanding of the world and humanity.
It also addresses a more fundamental question?why believe anything?

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus For Adults?
Be Patient! Jan 30, 2007
Jesus for Adults is scripturally sound, interesting, and does not insult the intelligence. However, Brook is prone to ramble and skip around to topics that have little to do with the theme of a particular chapter. The forward, preface, and introduction are eye-opening, but also seem to be a "soap box" the author uses before starting the book. Once past these pre-chapters, the book is definitely worth reading. Those seeking the purpose of life, new Christians, and mature Christians will all walk away with something new, notably a deeper relationship with Christ.
