The Jesus Creed

Full Product Description

When an expert in the law asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life, the Jesus Creed: loving God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also loving others as themselves.

In The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others, biblical scholar and popular teacher Scot McKnight presents a 30-chapter guide to spiritual formation, rich in theological insight and alive with practical applications.

The Jesus Creed by Scot McKnight was published by Paraclete Press in January 2004 and is our 43462nd best seller. The ISBN for The Jesus Creed is 9781557254009.

"Make sure this new guide for living is on your shelf." – Max Lucado

"Scot McKnight brings us into conversation with Jesus in the places and conditions in which we live our ordinary lives." – Eugene Peterson

"[Scot McKnight] has been a kind of secret weapon for my own education and growth. Now he can be yours as well. This book will bring Jesus' world and yours much closer together." – John Ortberg

"This fascinating book explains that the gospel is about the restoration of "cracked Eikons" (fallen humans) so that humans can be in union with God and in communion with the saints. In the candid and lucid style that has made McKnight's THE JESUS CREED so appealing to thousands of pastors, lay leaders, and everyday people who are searching for a more authentic faith, he encourages all Christians to recognize the simple, yet potentially transforming truth of the gospel message: God seeks to restore us to wholeness not only to make us better individuals, but to form a community of Jesus, a society in which humans strive to be in union with God and in communion with others." - Prisim ePistle, July 26, 2006.

"With a degree of theological insight that is refreshingly "meaty," The Jesus Creed is an excellent resource for anyone desiring life-changing, Christ-centered, spiritual growth." - CBA Marketplace, September 24, 2004.

"Amid a sea of books on Christian spiritual formation, McKnight brings us a simple, highly readable one focused on the weightiest teaching of Jesus: love God and love others as yourself. . . . McKnight shows great respect for the Jewish heritage of Jesus and offers readers scholarly, yet highly accessible, illustrations of the sociocultural landscape of first century Palestine." - Publishers Weekly, August 24, 2004.

"There are few people in the world who both speak well and know what they are talking about. Scot McKnight is one of those people. He blends a great scholarly mind, with a wonderful communicative spirit. In The Jesus Creed this all comes together. Read it, and read it again." Samuel Lamerson, Ph.D., Asst. Professor of New Testament, Knox Theological Semin, July 24, 2004.

"This book is a rare treat. A biblical scholar of the first rank offers the fruit of his own personal study, life experience, and prayerful reflections. It is clearly written, eminently practical, and based on a wide range of sage traditions (Protestant, Catholic and Jewish). One does not have to agree with Scot McKnight in all the particulars to see that he has produced a work of real value. No doubt this book will draw many readers closer to Christ, and more deeply into the wisdom of God's Word." - Scott Hahn, Ph.D., Professor of Scripture and Theology, Franciscan University of July 24, 2004.
