Publisher's Description

"How Do I know What God Wants from Me?"
 
Jesus came to earth to accomplish twenty-seven impossible missions, and He completed every one. He calls us to follow Him by pursuing four lifetime missions that enable us to bear spiritual fruit and "lay up treasures in Heaven." He also gives us more than one hundred promises—promises that provide the foundation and building blocks for a supernatural, miracle-working faith.
 
The Jesus Mission reveals the core discovery of the author’s life, which propelled his greatest spiritual breakthrough. This same discovery can radically transform your walk with God. Find out, by reading Jesus’ words, how He made it possible for you to live out the four lifetime missions He has given you, starting today.
 
"…whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." —John 14:12, niv

    Excellent foundational book on what Jesus expects out of His followers moving forward. I especially enjoyed the chapter and topic of "Born Again" out of the 3rd Chapter of John. We don't seem to hear enough of this important doctrine and oftentimes it is misunderstood, even among believers.

    Steven K. Scott, in The Jesus Mission (Waterbrook Press, 2011) talks a lot about the missions that Jesus accomplished, and the ones that have been left for us . He walks us through what he calls the four missions that Jesus assigned us: intimacy with God; accelerated personal growth; empowering other believers; and impacting the lives of non-believers.

    To be honest, if I had gotten this book from the library, I probably would have returned it mostly unread, but I had agreed to read the book for the purpose of writing a review, so I stuck it out, and I'm actually glad I did since there are some interesting nuggets buried within the pages.

    Although the book is full of scripture references to back up the author's points, it's not written by a theologian, and at times it seemed disjointed to me. At times I felt like I was at a men's conference since many sections end with ‘action points'. Other parts of the book seem like a ‘how to'. Part theology, part theory, part self-help, and a little bit of the author's personal opinion.

    Opinion is good, but even as he writes "He [Jesus] does not give people the option of recasting Him to suit their agenda," and states that Jesus is a favorite subject of people who want to rewrite history and refashion it to suit their own purposes, Scott spends part of a chapter showing how liberal thinkers such as then Senator Obama were totally off target when they wanted to "spread the wealth around." That probably wouldn't have caught my attention except for the fact that Scott's bio on the dust jacket lists him as an "entrepreneur whose start-up companies have achieved billions of dollars in sales". No wonder he thinks Jesus wouldn't be in favor of redistribution of wealth.

    There is some good stuff in this book, but it could have all been said in a much shorter book.

    I'll give this book a 3/5.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    The Jesus Mission: Christ Completed Twenty-Seven Missions While On Earth. Take Up The Four He Has Assigned To You, written by Steven Scott, is a book designed to carry its readers into a deeper relationship with Christ as they find and fulfill their purpose upon this earth.

    While this book is very well written and its use of scripture is commendable, my expectations were left wanting more of what its title had promised. Steven shares what he considers to be the twenty-seven missions of Jesus, and he does this utilizing only two of the nineteen chapters of the book. While his explanations into the twenty-seven missions of Jesus were clear and concise, they were too brief.

    Setting the afore mentioned aside, this book is well written and very informative. It opens up the Christian's mind and heart to the power and existence of Jesus. For the Christian reader, it is a reminder of God; for the non-Christian, it opens up a path towards God.

    For its practical and possible purposes, this book is a recommended read.

    The author's background as a business leader clearly shows in his style. He writes from what I would consider ‘a strategic planning perspective' - what is the goal or objective, and what are the tactics it takes to achieve each goal or objective. This is not necessarily a bad thing; it is just a different writing style than many other authors. Some will find this style very practical as the author focuses on the ‘meat and potatoes' or ‘nuts and bolts.' Others may not find the style as engaging as there are not many anecdotal stories that are used, especially to assist with how one may apply the Biblical knowledge in their own lives. However, the information is very well organized and it shows that the author went through the Scriptures and wanted to pass on what he learned to help others grow in their personal walk. Each point that the author uses begins with Scripture and he examines the context and the meaning of the passages he uses. If everyone took their Bible study as seriously as the author, we would be growing in our discipleship.

    If the author would take the time to go more in depth on some of the information he covers he could have a series of books or Bible studies. But, as noted earlier, one way for the author to improve would be to include more thoughts on how the readers can apply the knowledge they have gained from his book (as a supplement to their own personal Bible study).

    I received a copy of this book through the Blogging for Books Program of Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing. I did not have to write a positive review of this material.

    Steven K. Scott really out did himself in expounding on the Mission of Jesus and the Mission given to believers. He gave great insight on what it really means to fulfill the mission or commission of Jesus Christ. Scott broke down four critical mission statements for all believers. My favorite sections of the book was Chapter 6 & 7 where Scott paints a vivid picture of the salvation process and birthing process. These two chapters serves as a great tool in aid new converts in understanding salvation as a whole. The statement Scott made,"When we are born again, we are born as "spiritual babies," and our natural tendencies are to continue to express the immature behavior of our previous way of life." explains the need for salvation in a nutshell and the importance of maturing in one's spirituality. I give this book a 10. "I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review".
