A Black Cat Book Review
Simply Jesus by Joseph Stowell
Joseph Stowell has written a little book that is Simply Jesus. It is not a long complicated highly intellectual treatise on what it means to know Jesus. The discussion is more like a conversation with a caring teacher.
There is a richness in not just knowing Jesus but in experiencing Him; and this is what Stowell writes about–experiencing Jesus. He tells us of some attitude shifts that must be made before we come to the place of experiencing Jesus. Then he writes of three meeting places; in the Power of His Resurrection, in the Fellowship of His Sufferings, and in Sweet Surrender.
This would be a wonderful book to give a new believer or one who is wandering and wondering. A Christian who is feeling alone and lonely but doesn’t know why would benefit as would anyone who just needs a reminder or nudge to rekindle their faith.
I highly recommend this little book. It is easy to read but has surprising depth and is encouraging in it’s simplicity.
This book was sent to me without charge
