Book Review: Jesus Loves You (this i know)

Jesus Loves You...This I Know Jesus Loves You...This I Know by Craig Gross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
the compelling stories in this book are what makes it special. harper and gross alternate writing about how Jesus loves: outcasts, broken people, the forgotten, skeptics, gluttons, crooks, porn stars and even religious folk. their stories and experiences are so genuinely molded that i couldn't help but feel like i was a part of their story, too.

it was easy to be drawn in.

both authors make great points that should compel one to strive to be like Jesus and love like Jesus.

chapter four, written by Craig, was by far great story telling. this chapter was titled 'the forgotten' and spoke of how sometimes the community of believers inadvertently leaves some behind... alone... forgotten.

the most interesting segments came at the end when both authors write about their experiences befriending and dialoging with porn star Ron Jeremy.

i would recommend this book to any and all. it's not a difficult read at all. great stories. practical. honest. real. what more could you ask for?
