Book Review: The Jesus Manifesto by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola
- Sheldon Clowdus
In this case, excitement was justified and hesitation was erased. Sweet and Viola do a good job writing a very easily grasped book that is firmly rooted in scripture. They show the bible's teaching of Christ being the center of everything and the purpose for everything. I came away from reading this book very encouraged to see this idea being taught. Jesus has always been supreme and sovereign, but sometimes we need to be reminded of that. We tend to get off track easily, chasing after the things of God instead of God Himself and The Jesus Manifesto gently but firmly reminds us where our affections need to lie.
