Jesus Freaks Review

  • Adrielle
    January 1, 1970
    This second instalment in the Jesus Freaks books is just as startling and awe inspiring as the first. It is a collection of stories, throughout time and place, of what people have done, in the name of Christ. These stories show that strength can be found in love and faith. What better message is there? None, that's what!

    Great stories from Christian history by Toby Mac and Michael Tait of DC Talk.

    It was a good inspirational collection of stories from Christian revolutionaries throughout history. I just felt it was a bit choppy with no clear transition from story to story.

    Read this when I was a teenager and then read over and over again-Never gets old. Full of powerful stories of people who loved God with everything they had-literally. Think of this as a modern rendition of Foxes Book of Martyrs.

    The Good: In the style of the first volume of this series, dc Talk and the Voice of the Martyrs tell the stories of people who revolutionized the world in the name of Jesus. Traveling throughout time, even as far back as before the founding of Jamestown, the stories are both enlightening and challenging. At the end of the book, the message is driven home: Are you willing to do the same for your Savior?The Bad: As good as the stories are, I felt that the book had a lot of wasted space.

While I can understand the necessity for a few Bible verses here and there, the number of quotations in this book is a bit over the top. Some readers may quibble with that.Conclusion: I've been a fan of dc Talk since the late 1990s; they were the first band I ever liked, and I still listen their music--including both as a group and their solo works--pretty much every day. While this book is good, it could have used a bit more content. I appreciate the message, but the content is a little lacking.Score: 3/5

    This book is very similar in tone and subject matter to volume one. (Jesus Freaks: DC Talk and The Voice of the Martyrs - Stories of Those Who Stood for Jesus, the Ultimate Jesus Freaks)Pretty much everything I said in my review of that one also applies to this book. They're both great books, and I'd really recommend them to anyone who is searching to find out more about the persecuted church and to deepen their conviction in Christ.

    The individual stories of people who suffered or died for their Christian faith are compelling. Between each story you can find inspirational quotations and relevant Bible passages from various translations and paraphrases. Some of these accounts were familiar to me (for example, Martin Luther, Telemachus and Corrie tenBoom), but others were about lesser known or even unnamed people who experienced God special grace to remain true to Him.

    I loved this book! I found it to be a quick read and very inspirational for my walk with Christ. How convicting to read of these men and women of faith in comparison to my own efforts for the Cross. This book made me cringe a few times, but I'm glad the people of stoic faith are memorialized like this. Thanks to dc Talk and VOM!D.I. Telbat

    True stories of those who changed their world. An inspiring, heartwarming, and heartbreaking read that reminds me just how good I have it in life, and gets me thinking about what I would really be willing to give up for my fellow man or my faith.

    This book was filled with amazing and fearless men and women who feared nothing but God. As I was reading I only hoped that I could be half the person these people were. There love for God was unlike any other. Great book for anyone who believes in something to the point of death.

    I didn't like this on as good as Vol. 1, but there are still some amazing stories in this one. Would have given it five stars if I had read this one first.

    yo creo que es un libro muy padre e impactante porque cuenta testimonios de personas que son tentadas a negar a Jesús pero no lo hacen porque son unos Jesus Freaks :b
