Reviews - What do customers think about Knowing Jesus in Your Life?
approachable entree to Christian life Jun 10, 2003
While the style is a bit too oral and loose for 5 stars, this easy-to-read, short book gives a very down to earth introduction to what it really means to be a Christian. Personal stories bring theology out of the clouds and into real daily life; I especially admire the author's willingness to reveal her own weaknesses as well as how knowing Jesus has affected them. She never, before or after her conversion, comes off as a stained-glass, holier than thou person. Some of the images and illustrations she uses are uniquely helpful in bringing home what a Christian doctrine actually means to us. You will get right to the heart of Christianity by reading and reflecting on this book, and you'll feel able to make an intelligent choice about your faith.
A radical book for radical times Jun 24, 2000
Rev. Anderson has an excellent grasp of relational Christology and writes in a straight forward manner with great clarity and humor. Her personal story of coming to faith is captivating and offers encouragement to those who struggle with questions such as: Who is this Jesus? What does he mean to me? Does he make any difference in my life? She nailed it down when she wrote:"Following Jesus is a radical step. It is not to be religious: it is to have a relationship with a person, who, in fact, calls into question everything about our lives and moves us in directions that go against all that the world thinks is important." Well done. She answers the question as to who Jesus is to her, details her shocking experience of being used by God for the physical healing of another and invites us into relationship with God that will indeed change everything. An excellent book, easy to read, hope filled and life changing. I will read anything that this author writes.
