Overview

Is the Jesus of the modern western civilization the same Jesus found in the Bible? Is what we understand him to be in the United States and Europe the same as what’s perceived in Africa or the underground church of China? How can one person pray for a great parking space while another is praying for just enough food or safety to survive that day?

A Western Jesus speaks to the western world’s tendency to read God’s Word through the rose-colored glasses of a society that knows little persecution, risk, or sacrifice. Indeed, modern life lends itself to self-involvement, making it easier to over-domesticate the true Christ found in the Bible and forget what he’s really all about.

Here is a book that will answer the cry for authenticity being heard from today’s postmodern culture. Veteran pastor Mike Minter writes with a humble heart to those who have been insulted by religious hypocrisy, and who have claimed the modern church lacks relevance, or perhaps have even abandoned the Christian faith altogether.
