The Indispensable Jesus, by Doug Martin

Jesus is indispensable.

Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about most of this book.

It appears that an extremely intelligent, enthusiastic, and young Christian college professor has compiled a thousand pages of personal, devotional material and compiled it into this book by WestBow Press, a self-publishing subsidiary of Thomas Nelson.

The author means well and is passionate about his material.

Unfortunately, the sheer volume of material prevents a thorough reading.

I do recommend the author’s concluding thoughts on each topic. They are quite meaningful and thought-provoking.

If the author deleted most of his exposition and put out a brief devotional guide in the style of his many chapter conclusions, I would be very interested.

He has a great deal of potential.

This review was made possible because I received a free copy of the book from the publisher.
