What If Jesus Was Serious?: A Visual Guide to the Teachings of Jesus We Love to Ignore

tags: faith

This is a lovely book of short essay chapters which explain teachings of the New Testament that we clearly often forget. Each one starts “If Jesus was serious…”


Jethani has a left-ward bent, so if you’re a fundamentalist or social conservative, you might have problems with the book. There’s a lot in here that seems progressive, so it’s clearly not for everyone.

Each chapter has a cartoon that was drawn specifically for the chapter. I went looking and was surprised to find that apparently Jethani himself drew these.
