Three years ago, Judah Smith, pastor of the City Church in Seattle, Washington, wanted to get people thinking about Jesus. He didn't want to promote his church or a certain denomination, he just wanted to see what people thought of Him, to let them fill in the answer to "Jesus Is ____". That campaign resulted in billboards, bus signs, facebook ads, and a website where people shared their reactions and thoughts. The reactions ranged all over. Many were positive affirmations and declarations of faith, others were painful and serious expressions of doubt, and others were downright blasphemous.
After the experiment, Smith had a new mission--to share what the Bible says about who Jesus is. In this book, Smith hopes to fill in the blank for believers, seekers, and atheists alike, who wonder who Jesus is and what He's about. Using humorous anecdotes, mixed with real-life stories, Biblical insight, and filtered through his curious and somewhat ADD brain, Smith presents a robust portrait of the character of Jesus. He is Someone who loves you more than you can imagine, who wants to show you what real life is, and most of all wants to make you a better human, by becoming who you were made to be.
