/ -- A new book claims that what Jesus requests is not only difficult, it's incredibly unreasonable.
The Unreasonable Jesus: Becoming the Person He Made You to Be, a new release from Lifetree and Group Publishing, examines what Jesus asks of his disciples during the Sermon on the Mount, emphasizing how challenging yet rewarding the tasks actually are.
In the book, author Thomas Christianson explains that while many people are fans of Jesus, few understand and embrace his perplexing prompts including "Eat my flesh and drink my blood," "Never seek revenge," and "Love your enemies."
"Just about everybody likes Jesus," Christianson writes. "But I have a question: Would he be as popular if we actually read what he says. All the stuff he says?" Perhaps not as popular, he argues, but certainly more powerful and life-transforming.
Along with a unique examination of the Sermon on the Mount, The Unreasonable Jesus contains practical, doable suggestions for walking a narrow path toward a more purposeful, joy-filled life.
It is the newest member of the Jesus-Centered line of resources, joining the best-selling Jesus-Centered Bible, the Jesus-Centered Planner, and the popular devotion, Destination: Life.
The Unreasonable Jesus releases on March 6, 2018, and can be found on MyLifetree.com, Group.com, Amazon.com, and at other popular Christian retailers.
