Book Review

The Bad Habits of Jesus : Showing us the way to live right in a world gone wrong
by Leonard Sweet
Tyndale 2016

Reviewed by Diane Busch

This title intrigued me and I wasn't sure what to expect. Jesus didn't really have bad habits did he?  But then what about his offensive speech at times, his disappearing when he was needed, his spitting, his breaking the rules, etc.?  Leonard Sweet dives right in and names the things that Jesus did that caused people to be angry or offended. But then he explains why Jesus did these things and presents biblical truth in a way we canunderstand. Sweet tells us that we should make Jesus' habits our own habits, even his "bad" habits. There are so many good lessons for Christians and the church within these pages.  Especially of interest to me is when Sweet delves into polictial correctness on pages 63-64.  

This book offered much more than I expected. I underlined many passages. I recommend it to all Christ followers and to those who have questions about Jesus.

A copy of this book was received from Tyndale House Publishers for the purpose of review.
