How and Why Do Christians Try to “Domesticate” Jesus? MY ANSWER David Bryant One of my recent blog posts—“Why the Mission of ChristNow Is So Critical for This Hour”—got some interesting responses.

Am I truly person-driven when it comes to my relationship to the person of God’s Son? As a way of life, am I compelled daily not only to know more about him, but also to know him more?
Why Are Many “Evangelicals” Today Not Really Committed to Jesus as Lord?

David and Kim Butts, leaders of America’s National Prayer Committee and the national training organization, Harvest Prayer Ministries, have just written a book that answers both questions—and more!

Sitting in prison, broken and defeated, the Emperor Napoleon made an amazing assessment of Christ.
Why the Mission of ChristNow Is So Critical for This Hour There is a growing crisis inside the Church.

Editor’s Note: In Part 1, David Bryant concluded: “Christians believe in Jesus Christ not only because we see him ascended and active as Lord of all, but because we see everything else in the universe as it really is through the lens of his spectacular supremacy.” Now in Part 2, he explores the extraordinary spiritual riches this perspective on Jesus brings to everyone who belongs to Jesus.
