Review: All That Jesus Asks

My friend Dr. Louis Markos, whom I serve as a literary agent, has just posted the following very gracious review of All That Jesus Asks on Amazon.com. Thank you, Lou.

I am a professor of English at Houston Baptist University, and I am always happy when I read a writer who can (in the tradition of Philip Yancey) smoothly combine a reportage-type style with a more literary-type style. Effecting such a fusion is not easy, but Guthrie pulls it off beautifully. He gives us the facts and the statistics and the “current events,” but then he moves past such things to make comments of more universal merit. His thesis, that we can learn a great deal about Jesus by carefully considering the questions that HE asked, is a simple but highly effective one, and it enables Guthrie to open up new territories in the gospels, while still saying true to Christian orthodoxy. Guthrie has a strong and unique voice and vision to offer: one that our modern and postmodern world needs to hear.
