When I read the book description and the first chapter, I thought this book would look deeper into how Jesus interacted with those that the religious looked on as especially sinful and explore how different people are following Jesus example I was expecting the focus to mainly be on examples of people doing things right, but instead it was primarily on criticizing people who are doing things wrong While I d agree that the people in her examples weren t approaching people in a very loving way, I [...]
