Joseph M. Stowell – Simply Jesus

Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Simply Jesus, no one else. Strip away church rules, self-centered prayers, fatalism, religious fanaticism, and rediscover Jesus Christ and the love for Him. Joseph M. Stowell shows how believers’ lives will be changes if they’d be in His presence, more than the presidential vist Stowell once paid. Experience the power and perspective when you’re put on a fencepost by God. Gain Christ, just as Paul prayed for his fellow Christians. Surrender yourself and know God will be there too when you suffer or are seduced or  wrestle with difficult questions. It takes some attitude shifts: rejoice in the Lord and value Jesus above everything.

Though packed with quotes from the Bible, the book reads easily. Stowell definitely knows how to package a simple, but powerful message in a booklet.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to experience a personal and close relationship with Jesus Christ.
