Everything Jesus says in the Bible (more than 1,900 statements) is compiled into this book. A proper nickname for the book could easily be the Red Letter Book. If you ever wonder what Jesus says about a certain topic, this is the book for you. The book consists of 9 chapters which cover 9 main categories: What Christ Tells Us About Himself, What Christ Tells Us About His Father in Heaven, What Christ Tells Us About the Third Person of the Trinity, Life After Death, Heaven & Hell, Forgiveness, and Other Crucial Eternal Matters, What Jesus Said to Those Who Believe in Him, What Jesus Said About Our Nature, Our Struggles, and Our Future, What Jesus Said About God's Tireless Efforts to Save Humanity, What Jesus Told Us About Starting and Deepening a Relationship with God, and What Jesus Said About Succeeding with Others. Under these categories, you will find different subjects such as angels, rewards, evangelism, purity, spiritual priorities, accountability before God, false doctrine, anger, stumbling blocks, and lots more. Each chapter starts with a short introduction that aims to grab non-believers' attention. At the end of the book, you will find Scripture Index (arranged by the books of the New Testament from Matthew to Revelation) and Subject Index (more than 200 topics arranged in alphabetical order).
The greatest words ever spoken came from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you desire to know God more and have a deeper relationship with Him, spend time pondering on these words of Jesus. I'm thankful that the author organizes/categorizes them by topic for us. This book is an excellent resource as a reference book, a devotion book, or a group study book. Our family has been using it in our family's devotion time and I have been using it for my personal Bible study. The book is easy to use and so helpful & impactful. I love it; it's like having a spiritual feast on hand. Christ's words provide the foundation for all my values, beliefs, and doctrines. What started out as the author's personal project becomes a blessing to us all. God's Word has transforming power. Yes, you can find these words of Jesus in the Bible but in this book, they are put together for each topic. You'll be amazed when you read them this way; it will give you a comprehensive understanding of God's heart about each issue. Check this book out and discover answers, promises, comfort, encouragement, and God's thoughts! "Because the wisdom offered on each topic comes solely from the undiluted statements of Christ, their breadth, depth, and power are enlightening, faith building, and life changing." (p. 8) I totally agree!
"The Words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life."
