Publisher Comments:

So that in everything He might have the supremacy.

-Colossians 1:18

Christians have made the gospel about so many things-things other than Christ. Religious concepts, ideas, doctrines, strategies, methods, techniques, formulas, its and things have all eclipsed the beauty, the glory, and the reality of the Lord Jesus Himself. On the whole, Christians today are starved for a real experience of the living Christ. We know a lot about our Lord, but we don't know Him very well. We know a lot about trying to be like Jesus, but very little about living by His indwelling life.

JESUS MANIFESTO presents a fresh unveiling of Jesus as not only Savior and Lord, but as so much more. It is a prophetic call to restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ in a world-and a church-that has lost sight of Him.

Every revival and restoration in the church has been a rediscovery of some aspect of Christ in the process of answering the ultimate question that Jesus put to His disciples: Who do you say that I am?

Read this book and see your Lord like you've never seen Him before.

Synopsis:

This work emphasizes 10 crucial areas of restoring the supremacy of Jesus Christ, offering razor-sharp, cut-glass clarity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Synopsis:

Christians have made the gospel about so many things x2026;things other than Christ.

What is Christianity? It is Christ. Nothing more, nothing less. Christianity is not an ideology and not a philosophy. Christianity is the Good News that beauty, truth, and goodness are found in a Person. And conversion? It's more than a change in direction; it's a change in connection.

It is with these issues that the authors feel a massive disconnect in today's church. Their response? This manifesto emphasizing ten crucial areas of restoring the supremacy of Jesus Christ, noting

  • Christians don't follow Christianity; they follow Christ
  • Christians don't proclaim themselves; they proclaim Christ
  • Christians don't point people to core values; they point people to the Cross
  • Christians don't preach about Christ; they preach Christ

What is presented is razor-sharp, cut-glass clarity of the Lord Jesus Christ. It has never been more valuable or more needed.

Gregorio Roth, May 31, 2010 (view all comments by Gregorio Roth)
his book motivated me to think hard about what I consider my Christian Faith; especially the role of Christ in the body of the Church.

One part of the book was a yes, amen, y'all are telling truth. But the weeds of the book kept me from accepting their gospel.

At other times I felt like the book had something like a scratch on a record being played at 35 rotations a second; irritating at best."The Jesus he presented makes one's brain cells smoke in the efforts to grasp him." (Page 31). I was frustrated that Sweet and Viola did not tell the reader to search the scriptures and find the truth about our relationship with God there. Sweet and Viola seem to want to lead seekers into a large field far from the mind of God, replacing the truth in the bible to the truth of the Volk. The truth of the Volk is now named Jesus and must be accepted. This is dangerous and denies the laws of logic. I wanted to put the needle back past the errors presented. I wanted to yell, "What about the bible? What about the Catechism? What about the historical church?

A book like this motivates you to sharpen your truth stance in your Christian Walk. It also motivates you to track heretics and martyrs historical battle. Slightly chuck this into your garden and hope that it will grow amongst the weeds.
