On 1/15 Emily Geyer wrote: Frankly, I struggled through this book. The authors of Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ seek to convey that the Church (universal) is at a crossroads in its views and beliefs about the importance of Jesus in our lives. Though I found there to be many poignant lessons ... Good idea, but underwelming book
