Review: The Bad Habits of Jesus: Showing Us the Way to Live Right in a World Gone Wrong
Tyndale House Publishers
Leonard Sweet’s book, “The Bad Habits Of Jesus”, presents to us the offensive and scandalous side of Jesus that’s described in the Bible.
- Did he disappear when people needed him most? Yes.
- Did he refuse to answer questions directly? Yes.
- Did Jesus offend the people of his day? Absolutely, yes.
By all accounts Jesus did have bad habits, and Sweet presents them in a way that will have you yearning to have those same bad habits if you want to be a follower of Christ.
“Bad Habits” is an examination of how Jesus had habits that defied cultural expectations. It could be said that Jesus was a “rebel“! Jesus loved to party, he broke the rules, spit, procrastinated, hung out with bad people. The list goes on. Sweet reminds us that Jesus came for the least of us.
Too many times we view Jesus as quiet, timid, gentle, soft spoken. Sweet blows that picture apart and shows another side of Jesus that most of us overlooked. Throughout scripture we find that Jesus truly was a rebel.
At the back of the book is a discussion guide that is perfect if you wanted to use this book as part of a small group study. I highly recommend this book. You can get it HERE.
