Jesus Mission: Mediocre book

I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. To be brutally honest, I felt the book lacked depth and direction. Steven Scott, the author focused in on the four primary missions he said that Jesus left us to accomplish. Honestly, I think the “missions” he chose are generally accurate, but I think the most simple way to put it is to bring it down to three: preach, teach and heal. That was the ministry of Jesus, and it is the ministry of the Church today.

Unfortunately, Steven Scott barely brushes the surface of our mission. I don’t think the book does our mission justice.

I will give the book three stars. It is well written, his points are easy to understand, and if you’re a new Christian you might gather a light from his writings. As a born again believer for nearly twenty years, I wouldn’t call myself an expert, but I would say that I would have liked more meat and depth from this pastor.
