Jesus Christ is popular with many North Americans, but do they honor the Jesus of Scripture? Each author in this collection teams with one or more young adults to consider the various ways we encounter and experience Jesus. Topics include Jesus and creation, Jesus and the cross, Jesus and salvation, Jesus and mission, and Jesus and the future. Authors include Stanley Green, Michele Hershberger, Mark Thiessen Nation, Willard Swartley, Jack Suderman and April Yamasaki. Foreword by Shane Claiborne.
"The authors in Jesus Matters invite readers into their conversations about issues elemental to knowing and following Jesus. Those who are new to Christian faith or anyone who wants a fresh perspective on Jesus will learn a great deal from stopping to listen."
--Mennonite Weekly Review
"More books have been written about Jesus than about any other figure in human history. This engaging collection of reflections helps us understand afresh why Jesus matters so much, the difference he made in his own day, and his continuing relevance to the great issues of our day."
--Chris Marshall, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
