As best-selling author Max Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!” Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book, you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, meeting him living in a green-eyed brunette.
I'll be honest, I was a little wary of this book because of the title, but once you read it, you get it. This isn't a "whimsy" book. Max Davis has no qualms about talking about some pretty serious issues. Legalism and a common outlook on Christianity fill the pages. It will definitely shed light on how non-believers can view us Christians (Ahem, we need to work on that.) This book also highlights false beliefs that we have tacked on to the Word over the years (Yeah, we REALLY gotta stop doing that.). He himself is an example of the damage that false theologies can do to a person. It's VERY eye opening.
The best thing this book has to offer? Beautiful, real stories that people from all different walks of life have experienced. These stories of miraculous hope are AMAZING! They WILL give you goosebumps! I was completely in awe over many stories, including Donna's (you HAVE to read this book, especially for her story!).
If you're a little tired of the watered down gospel that's being spread around these days, take a look at this book. No doubt, this books has proof that the Lord is still doing amazing things. We CAN be a part of this too! We just have to make that decision and allow Christ to use us to affect the lives of others in a positive way!
Oh, and you'll definitely find out who that "green-eyed brunette" is!
