One New Dude is a straight forward contemporary lay theological explanation of a new and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. The language, syntax and phraseology used in this book is very current and present day specific which will appeal to the youth of this modern generation. It immediately addresses our spiritual condition and how one can deal with that nature while coming to a new spiritual understanding through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is about His grace… a grace that changes one’s mind and life.
The book begins by helping the reader come to a spiritual understanding of who they are today. Next it provides a road map with specific directions that leads the reader through a few deep theological concepts, i.e., justification, sanctification and glorification. As the author guides readers through this theological maze, very well I might add, the terms and concepts are well developed and explained while introducing basic theological applications for each reader to engage. Each chapter provides the reader with an opportunity to interact with the text, make notes all pointing toward direct and immediate application.
The hook for me was the contemporary approach this book takes in directing one straightforwardly to knowing Christ in a real and personal way. It is a very real and appealing religious and theological correct read for today’s contemporary religiously pluralistic oriented society. I highly recommend this book and plan on using it as a tool in Evangelism endeavors.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book on Transformation January 13, 2013
By Amazon Customer
Jeff Z has written an excellent book on transformation from a guilty sinner to Son of God. Few problems seem to cause more trouble in people’s lives than not knowing their true identity. It makes believers vulnerable to the fiery darts of Satan’s attacks as well as open to peer pressure from non-believing “friends.” Knowing who a person is in Christ sets them free to be who God wants them to be and in fact made them to be.
This book is a must read for all young Christians. And is a valuable resource and encouragement to seasoned believers alike. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know who they are in Christ and how to live a victorious Christian life.
