Jesus Mission: Mediocre book

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.
