Tasty Jesus deals with key cultural, philosophical, and theological representations of Christ that find expression in the North American church. Each of these respective cameos of Christ has colored the Christological understanding of many believers in the local assembly. We live in a society deeply embedded in a mindless individualism that is more concerned with a malleable Christ that suits their present taste than the Jesus of both the Bible and historic Christian orthodoxy. This book is at once a critique, a call, and a consideration. It is a critique of particular visions of Jesus that are embraced by specific subcultures, philosophical camps, and theological perspectives. It is a call to the local church, both its attendees and leadership, intended to awaken them to the problems with these various portraits in hope of stirring them to respond appropriately. It is a consideration of the primary ideological counterpoints to each view of Jesus, and a postulation of the best manner in which to equip believers in the local assembly to respond to each distortion of Jesus and live under the lordship of the real Christ. It is time to get Jesus out from under the tyranny of our personal tastes!

About the Author:

Bryan Hurlbutt (DMin, Talbot School of Theology; ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary) is the Lead Pastor of Lifeline Community, a multicampus church in suburban Salt Lake City, Utah. He is an author and speaker. He and is wife, Jennifer, have three daughters.

Review:

Bryan Hulrbutt speaks prophetically to a generation at risk of losing the real Jesus in the process of re-imagining him according to the current zeitgeist. Wide-ranging in its scope and convincing in its arguments, Tasty Jesus is a smart, helpful, theoretical but also deeply practical book that today's Christians would do well to read. --Brett McCracken, Author of Hipster Christianity

You will come away filled after reading this carefully documented work. --Louis Barbieri, Professor Emeritus of Theology, Former Chair and Professor of Theology, Moody Bible Institute, Chicago
