Burke, John. Unshockable Love: How Jesus changes the world through imperfect people. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books. 2014.
Only imperfect people can change the world…which means everyone has that chance to make an impact. Having studied Jesus and his interactions with people in the Bible- not just the words and messages of Jesus but the social interactions and attitudes towards those people by Jesus-John Burke shares short stories and real-life examples of people reaching out and witnessing to “shocking” people. The end result? All involved were impacted and brought closer to God…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Turning to those people who needed him most, Jesus surrounded himself with “shockable” people. Very relevant and relative to society today, “shockable” people still need love. John Burke does a wonderful job in this book of sharing love and acceptance of messy folks, resulting in a change in all. The message conveyed within was well-received due to the interesting and very plausible accounts written as well as the engaging style. A bit unsure of what to expect when I started reading, I am glad I pursued it. Definitely worth the time; definitely a book to be shared.
