In Awesome!: Exploring the Nature and Names of Jesus Dick Eastman quotes extensively from a multitude of theologians, Christian leaders, and scripture, to describe who Jesus is. There are seven pages of reference citations. Because of the multiple points of view used throughout, I found it difficult to engage with this book.
Written in a 31-day format, set with a specific nature of Jesus for each day, the chapters conclude with four steps to go deeper in your study. Explore, Experience, Express, and Exalt.
One thing I found useful in Awesome! was the author’s inclusion of 868 names, or expressions, describing Jesus in alphabetical order beginning with A to Z and ending with Zion-Dwelling God.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
You can find my August Inspire a Fire post here. Please stop by and read it.
I wish you well.
I agree with your assessment. Will continue for the 31 days cuz I think it’s mainly focus on who Jesus is or an encouraged me to reread some very familiar books like John
Carla, thanks for letting us know what your thoughts on the book are.
