The Bad Habits of Jesus: Showing Us the Way to Live Right in a World Gone Wrong
by Leonard Sweet
Did Jesus have bad habits?
In our culture, we have a tendency to describe Jesus in ways that soften his revolutionary edge. Len Sweet uncovers and presents to us the offensive and scandalous Jesus described in the Bible.
Did he disappear when people needed him most? Yes. Did he refuse to answer questions directly? Yes. Did Jesus offend the people of his day? Absolutely, yes.
Popular author and speaker Len Sweet examines the words and actions of Jesus and places them in context. We need to understand who Jesus really is if we are to follow him wholeheartedly. That is why it is so crucial to see the "rebellious rabbi" for who he is and not for who we may imagine him to be.
The Bad Habits of Jesus will help you see the untamed Jesus, who isn't sanitized for our culture. That Jesus just might transform how you live out your life.

Cassandra's Review Q@A-
- What did you like about the book and why? I like that the author created a book that he felt from his heart and really took time to add a bunch of great thoughts.
- What did you not like about the book and why? It is a little too crowded with presumptions and findings. I would have liked a straighter read through
- What did you learn? It was actually kind of hard to pick up a lot from this book, but I do feel the author really believes his writings.
- To whom would you recommend this book and why? Maybe to someone with a lot of time to pick through and decipher more meanings. I do not think youth would really be excited.
