The Jesus Creed

January 28, 2010

The Jesus Creed is a great book! Not only is the content refreshing and reflective and based on deep solid scholarship and spiritual maturity it is a study in how to organize information for the 21st century reader. Dr. Scot McKnight Professor at North Park University takes some basic exposition of the “shema” and then explores the concept seeing its day to day expression through the Lords Prayer, sacrements and other key New Testament concepts as well as people and event in the life of Christ. The stories are at once personal and profound, the quotes rich and always approperate. With each chapter running less than 10 pages it is a book meant to be read slowly with reflection. If you teach or preach there is a year of “seed thoughts” to study and apply in those contexts as well as everyday life. My next step is to purchase and read the study guide for I would love to take others through the book again. “Take and read”
