Publisher's Summary

"I came late to Christianity," writes Sara Miles, "knocked upside down by a mid-life conversion centered around eating a literal chunk of bread. I hadn't decided to profess an article of doctrine, but discovered a force blowing uncontrollably through the world."

In this new book, Sara Miles tells what happened when she decided to follow the flesh and blood Jesus by doing something real. For everyone afraid to feed hungry strangers, love the unlovable, or go to dark places to bless and heal, she offers hope. She holds out the promise of a God who gave a bunch of housewives and fishermen authority to forgive sins and raise the dead, and who continues to call us to action. And she tells, in vivid, heartbreakingly honest stories, how the ordinary people around her are transformed by taking up God's work in the world.

Sara Miles offers a fresh, fully embodied faith that sweeps away the anxious formulas of religion to reveal the scandalous power of eating with sinners, embracing the unclean, and loving the wrong people. Jesus Freak: Feeding Healing Raising the Dead is her inspiring book for undomesticated Christians who still believe, as she writes, "that Jesus has given us the power to be Jesus."

Inspiring Story of Faith in Action

The book brings us face to face with living the Way of Christ in today's world, seeing Him in the least likely of subjects, and expressing His love in sincere and practical ways. The path of faith through service is close to my heart, and the reminder that Jesus lives through us is always relevant. Sara Miles touches upon many truths, and i will probably listen to this again some time in the future. It was an easy 'read' at first pass, and there may be deeper meaning at second pass. Or, maybe i'm just complicating the simplicity of the message. Love each other, everyone. I don't think we have to open a soup kitchen to do so, but it was inspiring to see what can be accomplished through the passion to serve others and meet unmet needs.

This is not a biblically sound book

Would you try another book from Sara Miles and/or Katherine Dyer?

No i wouldn't

Any additional comments?

This book is very misleading.Its scary to think someone might listen to this and think what she says is in the Bible.It sounds like a mature understanding of Gods word,and then very secular views are added as though they are Biblical.
