Who is the Jesus we're showing? What is the Story we're telling? These honest questions sit at the heart of this punchy, provocative book. Throughout his debut title, Jeremy Bouma seeks to drive a conversation within the American Church about how she is showing Jesus and telling his hopeful Story because Americas culture is progressively skipping toward post-Christendom. Many Americans are increasingly disinterested in Jesus, skeptical of his followers, and ambivalent toward his good, hopeful message. Why is this the case? If Jesus and his message are what people have been waiting for their whole life, why are so many people leaving and avoiding him, his community, and Story? Who is the Jesus people are seeing? What is the Story people are hearing? Jeremy seeks to cast a new vision for showing and telling. "The (un)offensive gospel of Jesus" sketches a fresh portrait of the good Jesus and hopeful gospel found in the Holy Scriptures. Based on his experiences in the American Church, conversations and friendships, studies in theology and the Gospels, and the joy of following Jesus, Jeremy explores how Jesus and his gospel are inherently inspiring, good, and reassuring. More importantly, he reminds the Church that we are responsible for the Jesus we show and the Jesus people see, the Story we tell and the Story people hear. In the end, Jeremy helps us all understand why Jesus and His Story are much more hopeful than many of us think.
