Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
Jesus Speaks: Holding Fast in a World of Compromise
By Mike Baker, J.K. Jones and Jim Probst (InterVarsity Press)
The three authors are Pastor Mike Baker and two of his pastoral staff—J.K. Jones and Jim Probst—at Eastview Christian Church in Normal, Ill.
The book references the seven churches in Revelation 2-3 plus another one—yours. That eighth church shows up in Appendix 2. The book’s basic emphasis is holiness, and the authors accentuate it by using the churches’ personalities—both positive and negative.
The authors also discuss personal holiness, examining what it means to be ready to become and be holy.
The book is interspersed with devotionals. A helpful set of discussion starters for group study parallels the chapters.
Jesus Speaks is a wonderful book for Christians interested in learning more about holiness or anyone involved in a study of Revelation.
