Scot McKnight on the Jesus Creed

Jesus' life, from front cover to back cover, including the dust jacket, is a life shaped by the Jesus Creed. He learned the Shema from his father and mother; he amended it for his followers in the shape of the Jesus Creed. Most importantly, he lived it. We are called to participate in that very life, for it is that resurrected life that can form our lives.

Scot McKnight, The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others, 292.

So have you read this book--sounds good.

It is one of my favorite books, period. You'd like it. One to have and keep rereading, I think.

It is a wonderful book and one of my favorites as well brother. I am sorry I haven't visited in a long time. I have been extremely busy but am back and looking forward to it!!

Good to hear from you again, Kinney. That's more than quite alright. Though we certainly miss you in the blog world, yet there are different seasons for different things. Glad you're evidently feeling better and have those opportunities.
