Jesus Creed for Students

I’ve been selected as one of 50 youth workers to receive a free copy of Scot McKnight’s latest book, Jesus Creed for Students:

The gravity point of a life before God is that his followers are to love God and to love others with everything they’ve got. Scot McKnight now works out the “Jesus Creed” for high school and college students, seeking to show how it makes sense, giving shape to the moral lives of young adults. The Jesus Creed for Students is practical, filled with stories, and backed up and checked by youth pastors Chris Folmsbee and Syler Thomas.

I’m particularly excited to read through this book because I’m considering using it as a resource for my youth curriculum this fall. I am already a staunch proponent of the Jesus Creed independently of McKnight’s book; for years now, I have been teaching my students the first and second greatest commandments packed tightly into a clean, succinct phrase: “Love God, love others, and the rest will follow.” It’s so basic, yet it’s so central to the Christian life. And I believe it with all my heart.

Our church is currently working through 40 Days Living the Jesus Creed for Lent. I recently introduced the series in a sermon on March 13th, available here.
