Book Review

The Gospel According To Jesus--A Faith That Restores All Things by Chris Seay is not at all what I expected this book to be.
I was excited to be able to review this book thinking that this was going to be more of a Bible written from the perspective of Jesus. In a way, it is.
The author has written nine chapters of what he considers to be the downfall of the Christian church today. In all of the instances he has cited, I do agree with him. He states that the Christian church today is falling back into the legalistic theories of the Pharisees rather than the service and true gospel of Jesus.
I am usually a fast reader, and this book was a slow read--not because it is not interesting or informative--there is just a lot of meat to grasp onto and take into account.
The fact that Jesus was drawn to the broken and that we, as Christians in the world today, tend to avoid the broken made a great impact upon me. I can see where the majority of the Christian church of today has drifted from the original church after Jesus' resurrection. I can also see where many improvements in our society today need to be made in order to return to the true gospel of Jesus.
Overall, I would recommend this book if you are needing to change your perspective of exactly what Jesus came to do in this world.

Seems strange to me to see this book named the same as another WONDERFUL book ~ The Gospel According to Jesus by John MacArthur :o/
