Review: When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette
`When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette` is a spiritual growth book written by author Max Davis. Max Davis is the author of over 20 published books and has been featured on the 700 Club and the TODAY show.
His point of view seems to be the belief that Jesus exists and He is a healer. Whether we are healed on this earth or in heaven Jesus is our great Physician. The subtitle for this book seems to fit well, `Loving People Like God Does`. If each Christian would take this to heart we may actually see more love and less hate. However, as long as we live on earth there will be evil people, we all have sin nature. But if us people who call ourselves Christian would be more like Jesus we may see less sin. What do you think?
The author grew up in an ultra-conservative, hyper-legalistic family and church atmosphere gave him a lop-sided view of God (see page 12). There was no room for grace, which led to his rebellion.
I believe the author's common thread is that Christianity is not who you are on the outside, but on the inside. However, if you have Jesus on the inside He will emanate to the outside.
Max talks about how God has guided him into writing books, even when he made poor grades in school. I made poor grades and didn't like school. However, I feel a calling to make my blog my Christian witness. I know I don't always measure up, but I continue. Just like Max's mission is that of an author.
