Full Product Description
This an essential read for anyone serious about understanding how we've diluted and diffused the hard hitting message of Jesus. In this book, Phil Moore rediscovers the sharp edge of Jesus' words; what he said, what he meant and what he expects us to do about it.
Right from the beginning - almost as soon as his followers began to retell Jesus' story in words and writing, his followers started to tone down the radical message of Jesus life, works and teachings. When Jesus first spoke about his death and resurrection even one of his closest disciples wanted to gag him. The reason behind Jesus death and resurrection has caused offence ever since. In 'Gagging Jesus' Phil unpacks this message and shows why it's both shocking and such good news - for you.
In this book you'll find short pithy chapters explaining what Jesus had to say on a whole range of vital topics - stress, possessions, family, hell, pornography, popularity, world religions, sex and more.
"Jesus of Nazareth wasn't afraid to tell it like it is," says Phil Moore. "Those who claim to follow him, on the other hand, often are. If we're not careful, we can settle for a tamed and domesticated Jesus, a Jesus of our own making."
"That's why this book was written. If you always suspected that Jesus wasn't crucified for acting politely, then you will love it. It consists of thirteen short, punchy chapters which present Jesus in all his outrageous glory."
Gagging Jesus by Phil Moore was published by Lion Hudson in June 2013 and is our 6842nd best seller. The ISBN for Gagging Jesus is 9780857214539.

01 - JESUS ON STRESS: At the start of our new series, Phil Moore takes a look at the effect of stress in our lives and how we really just need to be still and know that God is God.
02 - JESUS ON POSSESSIONS: Phil looks at the lives of St. Francis of Assisi and Charles T. Studd, both were very rich, but after reading Mark 10, gave everything they had away. Phil asks why they did this and how should this affect our lives today.
03 - JESUS ON PORN: David looks at Matthew 5, where Jesus tell us that anyone who looks at another person with lust is an adulterer
04 - JESUS ON OTHER RELIGIONS: In this sermon, Phil takes a look at the importance of the fact that Jesus really is the only way and contrasts this to the view of other religions.
05 - JESUS ON DIVORCE: David looks at what Jesus said in Matthew 19 and how it applies to marriage and divorce today, rejecting some common myths around the subject. Sidney gives his own testimony around the subject.
06 - JESUS ON POVERTY: Phil looks at possibly the most offensive passage in the Bible, in Matthew 25 Jesus talks about our attitude to those in need, how it can be a test of our true beliefs, and the eternal consequences it can have.
07 - JESUS ON HELL: Hell is a subject that people, Christians and Non-Christians alike, would sometimes like to sweep under the carpet. In this sermon, Phil takes a look at some inaccurate beliefs about hell and talks about what Jesus' teaching on it reveals to us about the Gospel.
08 - JESUS ON FAMILY: Jesus on Family may seem like the softer interlude in our hard-hitting Gagging Jesus series, but looking at Luke 14, we see that Jesus tells us that we should hate our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, our own lives in order to be his disciples. David takes us through this passage, and asks what is the true cost of following Jesus Christ?
09 - JESUS ON ANGER: Phil looks at the differences between righteous and unrighteous anger and uses Jesus driving out the money lenders from the temple courts to show us the importance of righteous anger.
10 - JESUS ON DOING LIFE TOGETHER: In this sermon, Phil takes a look at how important it is that we rub shoulders with other Christians from all walks of life and how God can use this to teach us and change us.
11 - JESUS ON LIFESTYLE: Phil looks at Jesus' sermon on the mount and what it actually means to live the Christian lifestyle.
12 - JESUS ON SEX: Michael and Akhtar both look at what Jesus teaches on sex, from a single person and married couple's perspective. They look at the purpose of sex, how our attitude to it affects our relationships with both other people and God, and also look at the consequences of sexual sin, and how to respond to it.
13 - JESUS ON POPULARITY: Jesus warns us about wanting to be famous, but He also encourages us not to live our lives like nobody is watching, but to live them for the audience of God. Pete & Sean look at both of these aspects of fame/popularity that Jesus speaks about.
14 - JESUS ON DEATH AND RESURRECTION: When Jesus first spoke about his death and resurrection even one of his closest disciples wanted to gag him. And the reason why Jesus died and rose again has been causing offence ever since. Phil unpacks this Easter message, and shows why it is such good news for us.
15 - JESUS ON KIDS: In the final "Gagging Jesus" sermon, Matt and Michael look at what Jesus had to say about children and how we should approach God with a child-like attitude in so many areas of our lives.
