Item description for The Smell of Sin: Making Friends in a Multicultural World by Don Everts...

Overview
Why did Jesus paint such vivid pictures when he talked about sin? And why did he make them so sobering - and almost gory at times?

In The Smell of Sin, Don Everts seriously tackles these stark images, coming face to face with Jesus' clear, graphic theology of sin. It's a view of sin that might make you uncomfortable. But a collision with this hard truth may be just what you need.

Everts says, "This little book on sin is...a hopeful shout to all of us who are tired of being bullied by the sins in our life. It's a celebration of what Jesus' unfashionable truth can mean for us."

Publishers Description
An old man saws through his right ankle. A smooth-skinned boy lies to his father's face. Fetid tombs, harsh slavery, fatal choking . . . these images come right from the words of Jesus They are word pictures Jesus asks listeners to imagine. But why? Why did Jesus paint such vivid pictures when he talked about sin? And why did he make them so sobering--and downright gory at times? InThe Smell of Sin, Don Everts seriously tackles these stark images, coming face to face with Jesus' clear, graphic theology of sin. It's a view of sin that might make you uncomforable. But a collision with this hard truth may be just what you need.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Smell of Sin: And the Fresh Air of Grace?

Coming to your senses....  Aug 22, 2005
A good read, with a different sensory take on understanding sin. Reads a bit deeper than Jesus With Dirty Feet, worth the time to look at the diamond from a new prism.
 
Superb  Aug 21, 2005
A serious campus ministry leader who takes his beliefs seriously and applies a refreshingly candid wake-up call
for all Christians.
 
Real. Fresh  Nov 13, 2003
A down to earth, refreshing look into Jesus' view on sin, and his response to it. Everts starts by wiping clean our skewed perception of God and sin. He then shows us the smell of sin through great in-depth study of Jesus' graphic descriptions of it. Finally, he ends with the unmatched, reviving message of hope that only Jesus offers. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a fresh new look at the Word either because of a long time away from it, or because of a heart that has lost its first love.
 
Sin Smells Like Roses  May 9, 2003
The Smell of Sin is a refreshing book about a subject most christians ignore today and that is sin. Don addresses what Jesus thought and taught about the subject and how radically He wanted us to deal with it. As a Reformed believer I didn't appreciate the Arminianism in the book but I still think it a timely book on a timeless subject. His graphic poetry and stories of what sin really smells like are shockingly true. This is down to earth christianity! I wish he spent a little more time on the struggle that the believer continues to have with the old man of sin till death. It's a nice book to read over a couple of times, nice and short but to the point. I will recommend it to my reading friends.
