Book Review: The Bad Habits of Jesus by Leonard Sweet


“The Bad Habits of Jesus” by Leonard Sweet. The title of this book may offend some people but that is just one of the habits of Jesus that this book covers. There are so many things that Jesus did that went against society  of 2000 years ago and still would go against society today. This book intrigued me and I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the feeling of the soft cover.

The 15 main habits that Leonard Sweet covers are: Jesus Spit, Jesus Proctastinated, Jesus Appeared Wasteful, Jesus Was Constantly Disappearing, Jesus Offended People, Especially in High Places, Jesus Told Stories That Didn’t Make Sense, Jesus Loved To Party, Jesus Could Be Dangerous, Jesus Hung Out With Bad People, Jesus Spent Too Much Time With Children, Jesus Either Talked Too Much Or Was Silent When He Should Have Talked, Jesus Broke The Rules, Jesus Enjoyed The Company Of Women (Not Just Men), Jesus Focused On The Little Things In Life, and Jesus Thought He Was God. Leonard Sweet goes into great detail explaining each of these habits. Leonard Sweet backs his points up with Scripture while relating the topics to both the culture of 200 years ago and today.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to learn more about the character of Jesus and how Christianity should look today.
