#OctTBR2022 Day 28: “The Genius of Jesus” by Erwin McManus

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: A book by the religious philosopher and futurist about the person of Jesus Christ.

Why I’m Reading It: McManus is someone who always raises some red flags in my mind when I read or hear his quotes. His vibe is very post-modern. I can’t cite for you exactly why I’m cautious with his work; he just never passed the smell test for me. However, I have multiple friends who think he’s the bee’s knees. I was sent an email with an offer to read and review his latest book, and I signed up and then promptly forgot about it. Several months later, a hardbound copy of this book landed on my doorstep. (Two, actually.) I’m interested in diving in and seeing what McManus is all about so that I have a clearer basis for assessing his positions. If nothing else, it will give me something helpful to talk about with my afore-mentioned friends.

Have you read this book or anything else by McManus? What do you think of his writing/speaking? Let me know in the comments!
