As lighthearted as it is convicting and as concise as it is theologically profound, Skye Jethani’s book What If Jesus Was Serious: A Visual Guide to the Teachings of Jesus We Love to Ignore challenges our long-held (yet not exactly biblical) assumptions about following the way and teachings of Jesus. Written in a concise, devotional-style structure, each chapter hones in on a teaching of Jesus that Christians tend to forget, misunderstand, or ignore altogether. This is an excellent resource for those who are looking for a topical book study that covers Jesus’ teachings on a wide range of areas including culture, God’s nature, and Christian love, or those who need a daily dose of devotional truth that is honest, convicting, challenging, and inspiring. This book will challenge you to reevaluate your own understanding of the life and purpose of a follower of Jesus in light of what Jesus actually said and taught about the nature of the world and our calling as His disciples.
