I Waited So Long For This Book

Jesus : A Theography, Leonard Sweet

I love the concept of putting all together how Jesus shows up throughout the Bible. He doesn’t just show up somewhere in the middle; He is there from before the foundations of the earth because He is God.  When I first saw this book I knew that I wanted to read it.  I haven’t read anything by either of these authors before but have heard good things about their other books.

I cannot explain what it is that surprisingly disappointed me about this book I had so longed to read.  I’m not sure if it is because the concept is not new to me having grown up in a really good church that taught Jesus as the Alpha and Omega.  Maybe it was the flowery prose that turned me off.  I just know that within a few pages I could hardly stand to read more.  There are some good parts but I’m not sure it’s worth the effort of getting through the rest.  I really wish that I had liked this book.

I received this book free of charge from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review.
