JESUS SWAGGER by Jarrid Wilson
JESUS SWAGGER by Jarrid Wilson allows the Believer to evaluate his or her commitment to faith. Forget about the attention getting title, if you don’t know what swagger is the introduction will teach you.
Despite its’ non-traditional title and catchy chapter headings the areas addressed in this book are serious topics. Each chapter in JESUS SWAGGER -Break Free from Poser Christianity (the full title) examines things many non-believers wonder about and Believers may or may not understand. I like the evaluation concepts found within a few chapters: “Eight Differences Between A Believer and A Follower”: “Six Things Jesus Didn’t Die For”; and “Five Ways To Get Closer To God”; they make great group discussion points.
Many followers of Christ do not have that noticeable swag that should be present. They may have bumper stickers, t-shirts, and jewelry that identify them as a Christian; they may even be tithers with regular church attendance but their co-workers do not see any difference between them and the atheist on the job. If people cannot see the God in you through your words and deeds then you lack swag; as the author Jarrid Wilson points out having a Jesus swagger is not optional.
I recommend this book. It is particularly great for young adults.
