When Jesus Was A Green-Eyed Brunette (WHAT ???) A Review


I just received an interesting book for review that I'm submitting for your perusal. I had not read anything by Max Davis, so I was curious to check it out. His book, When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette's  title might seem a little sacrilegious to some, but it is an encouraging and inspirational read, particularly for those who are struggling with the hypocrisy of religion, or perhaps even wondering if there is anything to the story of Jesus.

Max shares honest, sometimes raw stories from his life, and in each one, God shows up... not typically as a body-less supernatural presence, but as a supernatural presence inhabiting the heart and life of those who follow and love Him. The outworking and real-life examples of Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Max tells about his own path to the reality of Jesus, whose presence shone through the eyes of a green-eyed brunette. His call throughout the book is to return to the roots of real Christianity, not Religiosity~ to have a real relationship with Christ, and to exemplify His love, grace, and peace in our lives.

When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette was written by a man, and is not Gospel. However, there are many nuggets of truth that are intended to turn the reader back to the Gospel, the person of Christ, encourage them to walk with Him, and see where God shows up ~ sometimes in and through the most unlikely people and circumstances. 

About the Book:
When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette. As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”
