Publisher's Summary

In our culture of personalization, where everything is customizable, Jesus is often reworked into what each individual wants Him to be. Jesus is aligned to a person's agendas and dreams, making it easier for him or her to agree with Him. 

Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?: 12 False Christs aims to address the many incorrect versions of Jesus present in today's culture. Whether Jesus is seen as a patriot, a social justice warrior, a therapist, or a giver of bling, these many false christs diminish the real Christ - the Savior of the world who defies our culture's standards. This book looks to the Bible to reveal that the real Jesus is already standing, while the false christs are not able to stand on their own.

Great Read, Best Story, Challenging and Helpful

"It doesn't matter what WE say about Jesus, what matters is what Jesus says about Himself." (from the book's conclusion). This terrific book exposes our culture/self-made idols of Jesus and points us to the real Jesus as revealed to us in Holy Scripture. The single most influential person to walk the earth, who literally split time in two (BC/AD), asks both Peter and us all "You do YOU say that I am?" Author and Pastor Richard exposes many of the presuppositions we have about Jesus (i.e. false Christs) - how we create a Jesus that meets our own needs - comfort, bling, healing, etc - rather that the real Jesus who fulfills our greatest need - forgiveness and righteousness before God. Truly the Gospel is the best story of them all! I enjoyed how Pastor Richard used stories of encounters with different people to make his theological points - simply, clearly, and powerfully. Great read!

A Simple and Helpful Theological Book

This use stories and recorded conversations to express the themes of this book in simple and easy to understand ways. Very helpful for those interested in Jesus

I poorly reviewed the performance because almost all of the chapters were cut short at the end, I don't think much content was lost, but in not sure.
