Item Description...
The author shares ten reasons why Jesus makes her nervous by examining such terms as "resurrection," "blessedness," "wisdom," and "forgiveness" and the dangers of actually "living out" these words.

Publishers Description
Jesus offers grace and mercy but he's also ratcheted up all the rulesNice as it would be to frame Jesus as fun-loving, or a mercy-dispensing friend, the stories we have about him are a lot more disturbing than that.We hear about celebrations that began as a wake, and about people who didn't use their talents well being bounced clear out of the club. Jesus clearly thought that following the way of truth involved a lot more than simply avoiding things like murder, stealing, committing adultery or telling lies.When Jesus truly makes you nervous, he is worth living and dying for, and becomes the greatest source of meaning and purpose in life imaginable.Holiness. Abundance. Forgiveness. Hope. In these musings about 'ten stained-glass words of faith, ' Joy Jordan-Lake strips away the cliches and church-bulletin nostrums and exposes the honest, challenging, comforting, and yes, sometimes alarming claims that are at the center of Jesus' life and teaching. This book is downright restorative."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Real Faith for Real People  Apr 25, 2008
Joy Jordon-Lake offers a funny, poignant, down-to-earth look at what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st Century. In doing so, she avoids the superficial platitudes and cliches found in so many contemporary Christian books. She writes in a fresh, original style, often illustrating with stories from her own life. I have shared this book with friends who were going through divorce, ovarian cancer and other struggles and it spoke to them. If you think Jesus will solve all your problems and give you a safe, comfortable and successful life, this is probably not a book you will enjoy. On the other hand, if you're looking for a reliable guidebook for the difficult way of faith, I recommend this book. - Peter Larson, Senior Pastor, Lebanon Presbyterian Church
