About Simply Jesus

Simply Jesus. What would it mean to fix our attention fully on the Person of Christ? To approach Him apart from systems, formulas, religion, and well-meaning Christian culture? To see Jesus Himself? And how would that change us? Moody Bible College President Joseph Stowell ponders these probing questions -- showing through dramatic stories and surprising insights how believers can experience significant life-change as they encounter Christ -- our model of understanding, love, and courage, today. Simply Jesus identifies experiences that can awaken the realization of our basic need to focus on Him ... like temptation, trouble, and surrender. A book intended for both spiritual seekers and Christians who are ready for a fresh, personal encounter with the Savior their heart searches for. Clear, stylish typeset, with user-friendly links to referenced Scripture.

The author does a great job with the book from the standpoint of the experience believers can have with Jesus if we just focus our attention solely on him.

Simply Jesus by Joe Stowell "Simply Jesus" is a book on really experiencing Jesus in your life. That is not hard to do, as I believe this book shows.

I like that this book said what was needed to be said on this subject and did it in 62 pages. He enhances the book...

I was looking for a book that would help me to know more about Jesus, to improve my relationship with Him, you know, going deeper into intimacy with Him, and this book seemed the right one. But after reading some pages I realized two things: The first one was that I felt this book was intended to give only an introduction about the second person of the Trinity. That doesn't mean it's not good at all, actually it's really good the way...
