Jesus-ManifestoI’m pretty pumped about starting Jesus Manifesto by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola. After all, when you’re posting about the introduction…

If the church does not reorient and become Christological at its core, any steps taken will be backwards… the major disease of today’s church is JDD: Jesus Deficit Disorder. The person of Jesus has become increasingly politically incorrect and is being replaced by the language of “justice,” “morality,” “values,” and “leadership principles.” The world likes Jesus; they just don’t like the church. But increasingly, the church likes the church, yet it doesn’t like Jesus. (xiv-xvi)
