Or maybe I should tell you the rest of the story…
This 36 page ebook will hit you like a wallop upside the head. It is a page turner. It is written by Demian Farnworth. It is a compilation of arguably his finest series on his blog, Fallen and Flawed. It presents the identity of Christ so clearly, you will be breathless.
I guess the bottom line is: You ought to download and read The Messiah: Eleven Mediations from the Book of Mark.
Here’s a short excerpt from the introduction to whet your appetite:
“Something happens when you systematically read through a gospel narrative like the book of Mark: You are confronted with the real Jesus.
“Gone are the pretty pictures of a gentle man lugging a lamb around on his shoulders.
“Instead, you meet a man who is vast in wisdom, terrifying in strength and exceptional in humility. So vast, terrifying and exceptional you begin to wonder if he is God.”
Here are five ideas for way to use the book from Demian & Co.:
Read it and move on. Pretty straightforward. You could take it a bit further and brag [or rag] on it–whether here, Scribd or your social media site of choice.
Print the book out and hunker down each morning with a chapter. Meditate on the messages like you might a page from Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest.
The book is 30 pages of very short chapters, so it’s easy to read. And the content [the identity of Jesus] is perfect for introducing non-believers to the gospel.
