I have been thinking alot about people lately. With the start of another American Idol season, I am counted among those who tuned in this week to watch the auditions of the very good and the very bad. Perhaps it is because I sing very badly, but my heart just went out to these individuals who were making themselves so vulnerable on national television. Underneath the tone-deafness, oddness, fatness, thinness, geekiness, diva-ness, shyness, obnoxiousness...I wondered at each face...Who are you really? Who is the person we don't get to see? What are the things that motivate you? weigh on your heart? consume you?
Jesus was a people person. Jesus loved people. People knew that Jesus loved them. In his distinctively simple yet forthright style, Miller takes a look at people in this book. He is causing me to look at some very important questions: Who do I value? Who would I vote off the lifeboat? What was Jesus like while He lived as a human? How do I treat people?
I haven't quite finished this book but I have had a hard time putting it down...it is THAT good. I want my daughter to read this after I am done. Let me know if you want to borrow it after her.
