You Can't Keep Jesus In A Box

Untamed by Lisa Harper

This is the first book I have read by Lisa Harper.  This is a refreshingly unorthodox Bible study.  Lisa takes Jesus out of the tight, comfy little box that so many of us have put him in by looking at several passages of Scripture in a new way.
The book is super simple to read and understand.  This study would be very good to do with young believers or those whose only understanding of Jesus is very limited; a meek and mild God kind of view.  The author’s take on Biblical events can be pretty funny but is also accompanied by the actual verses of Scripture she is paraphrasing.  I learned several new things from the historical facts are sprinkled throughout each chapter.

 This is a very good book to read whether you are doing a formal Bible study group, with a few friends, or by yourself.   I definitely recommend picking this one up.
This book was provided by Waterbrook Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
