Product Review – “Not My Jesus” by Bob Fabey
This is my opinion. I am reviewing this as person who is a follower of Jesus Christ. I do not have a Ph.D in Bible Scholar Stuff. I am a wife and mother of two boys who enjoys movies and entertainment that I deem appropriate for me and my family. Again, this is my opinion of a Christian book. I’d love to talk to you about Jesus Christ in person.
Wowza. The old saying “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover” is certainly appropriate in this case! When I posted this image on my Facebook page, many people commented…it is definitely an attention-getter and caused some folks to raise an eyebrow or two.
As I delved in, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the book gives a scripturally sound, accurate picture (see what I did there?) of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the Godhead, and the Savior for our sins. Believers and non-believers alike have many misconceptions of who Jesus is…like a genie in a bottle, a Santa Claus, a critical judge, or like our “Homeboy,” when He is much much more.
“Not My Jesus” is a call to action for Christians to examine our own, often-times limited view of who Jesus is; and with the power of the Holy Spirit, reflect a more accurate picture of Jesus to the world. Fabey challenges us to embrace ALL of who Jesus Christ is and allow Him to love us, so we can in turn love others.
Bob Fabey’s comic approach and real-life correlations make the book easy and enjoyable to read. It is usually difficult for me to entertain things that seem irreverent in relation to Jesus Christ and this was my stance in the beginning. I was guarded and judgemental, much like the people the author describes in this book.
I was sure that this was going to be a book mocking Christians but it was just the opposite. The book pointed me back to what the Bible says to do…LOVE THOSE THAT MAY MOCK CHRISTIANS instead of getting all salty about it like I was to begin with!!
Well played, Bob Fabey. Well played.
On page 117, Fabey charges the reader…”We must love with reckless abandon. Wouldn’t the world look different if Christians practiced what they said they believed?…The church would be a place of safety and refuge for those harassed souls looking for hope.”
Yes, it would indeed.
