The acronym WWJD (What would Jesus do?) has become a popular device for making ethical and moral decisions, and evaluating how we should act in a wide range of situations. But this seemingly ubiquitous slogan has also been used to trivialize Jesus and use his name to endorse some activity or product. Now we also hear questions like: What would Jesus eat? What would Jesus wear? What would Jesus drive? Enough already! If you want to consider this question seriously, then the best way to find the answer to WWJD is to investigate what Jesus actually did while he was here on earth. Jesus Christ was a real man who lived in a real time and a real place--and his words and deeds are recorded in the four Gospels. Once we carefully study the Gospels and become familiar with what Jesus did, then we will be in a better position to discern what Jesus would do now. What Jesus Did is an in-depth look at the life of Jesus, including his birth, his parables, his miracles, his sayings, his death, and his resurrection. The unique format of this study guide makes it an excellent resource for a preaching series, Sunday school lessons, group Bible study, or personal devotional reading. Each chapter is built around a series of questions to help you gain deeper meaning and insight from the scriptures. And because Jesus expects us to turn learning into doing and live according to his example, each chapter also includes a WWJD action step for applying his teachings in our daily lives.

Gabe is a teenage Jehovah’s Witness convinced God will kill him at Armageddon for masturbating. But Gabe’s not alone: there’s Peter, who writes swear words in the margins of his papers; Jihyun, the Korean kid who subsists on Ho Hos and Doritos; and Camille, who follows Gabe around, trying to be his girlfriend. There’s also Gabe’s mom, who sleeps sixteen hours a day, and his dad, an elder who decides the fate of sinners (like the married couple who confesses to accidentally having anal sex). There’s Brother Miller, an elder with a Napoleon complex, who accompanies Gabe from door to door, encouraging him to knock with confidence, and Sister Feeney, who looks forward to the day she can move into a Spanish-style house after its owner dies at the end of the world. Luckily for Gabe, there is Uncle Jeff, who used to tour with Santana and now gives Gabe the only valuable girl advice he ever receives. It's hard when school days are spent dodging questions about your weird religion and weekends mean preaching house to house. Life looks dreary until Gabe falls for Camille’s beautiful older sister and begins to see her as the answer to his frustrations.

The apostle Paul was kind of a jerk. He was arrogant and stubborn. He called his opponents derogatory, racist names. He legitimized slavery and silenced women. He was a moralistic, homophobic killjoy who imposed his narrow religious views on others. Or was he? Randolph Richards and Brandon O'Brien explore the complicated persona and teachings of the apostle Paul. Unpacking his personal history and cultural context, they show how Paul both offended Roman perspectives and scandalized Jewish sensibilities. His vision of Christian faith was deeply disturbing to those in his day and remains so in ours. Paul behaved badly, but not just in the ways we might think. Take another look at Paul and see why this "worst of sinners" dares to say, "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ."

"You faithless generation..." "I came to send fire on the earth..." "Get behind me, Satan!" Do you wonder which smarmy evangelist spouted this incendiary phrases? How about the one who lived 2000 years ago and was nailed to a cross? Jesus Christ was a savior, prophet, healer...nice guy? We may want to have a friend in Jesus, but some of the things he says in the Bible make him sound like - there's no other way to say it - a jerk. "Jesus Was NOT a Nice Guy" explores those passages in depth, and provides practical ways we can relate to Jesus when he acts less than Messiah-like.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Abandon dead, dry, rule-keeping and embrace the promise of being truly known and deeply loved. Jefferson Bethke burst into the cultural conversation in 2012 with a passionate, provocative poem titled “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus.” The 4-minute video literally became an overnight sensation, with 7 million YouTube views in its first 48 hours (and 23+ million in a year). The message blew up on social-media, triggering an avalanche of responses running the gamut from encouraged to enraged. In Jesus > Religion, Bethke unpacks similar contrasts that he drew in the poem—highlighting the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. With refreshing candor he delves into the motivation behind his message, beginning with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behavior. Bethke is quick to acknowledge that he’s not a pastor or theologian, but simply a regular, twenty-something who cried out for a life greater than the one for which he had settled. Along his journey, Bethke discovered the real Jesus, who beckoned him beyond the props of false religion.

This unique phrase-by-phrase exposition reads the Lord's Prayer as Jesus' description of God. Our heavenly Father is the perfect parent beyond our dreams who loves, provides, forgives, and ultimately protects. Finding our parent, we discover who we really are and enter a kingdom without boundaries. The Prayer of Jesus is not a somber duty; it is the essence of the gospel's happy news. "If laughter is forbidden in heaven," said Martin Luther, "I don't want to go there."
