Publisher's Summary

Judah Smith digs deep to answer the most common and the most difficult questions about Jesus, a man so few understand and so many desperately need.

In Jesus Is, Judah Smith explores a number of topics that reveal Jesus' purpose for coming, what he accomplished while he was here, and what that means for those of us who came after. Jesus is greatly revered, harshly criticized, and sorely misunderstood.

Judah breaks down who Jesus is and explains to listeners how understanding that more fully will not only enrich their lives, but also give meaning to them and save them.

Jesus Is gives listeners the intimate knowledge that makes for a deeper, lasting relationship with Jesus, allowing them to commune with and grow in him. Judah wants listeners to know that Jesus is more than a good teacher, more than an inspiring leader. He is the point of all life.

Inspired and inspirational

Judah manages to take the simplicity of the gospel of grace and put it into a very engaging and relatable format. The way he is able to not only be vulnerable but also relatable makes this easy to follow and simple to apply to life. Amazing work!

This book is for EVERYBODY!

Where does Jesus Is rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books I have.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jesus Is?

"That’s the gospel. It’s good news for everyone. It’s not good news just for people who are already good, for those who are self-controlled and disciplined enough to have all their ducks in a row. It’s good news for the people who can’t even find their ducks. They haven’t seen some of their ducks in years. Their lives are a mess. But they can come to Jesus and find instant acceptance. They belong long before they believe and long before they behave.”

What about Judah Smith’s performance did you like?

He is funny and real.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

BOTH!

5 hearts review

Listened to the entire book in 2 days driving back and forth to work. This one settled well with my soul. I am glad I bought it so I can listen to it again! Sometimes I get a little too uptight about God and after reading this my perspective shifted and my heart lightened up a lot. ❤❤❤❤❤

Heart touching

Judah has a way of making you understand that Jesus's love for us is inescapable, sufficient and deeply personal. Who wouldn't want to be part of that relationship? I listened to this book on Audible and Judah was the narrator as well as the author. You can hear his love for Jesus, his relationship with Jesus, his earnest desire for the reader to experience the same, unmistakably in his voice! Judah is down to earth and funny; he also comes from love rather than judgment. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Relatable and engaging

I try to listen to Christian Teachers, their teachings/sermons and audio books. Most are not tolerable to my ear because they’re not natural with the presentation. This book felt conversational. I could and will repeat this audio book. I recommended to my mother before the halfway mark. The biggest turnoff for me regarding Christianity is the Old White Dude/Gal delivering the message. I like Joyce Meyer sermons and her books if she is the narrator. Now I have a new favorite with Judah. I’ll be checking out his other selections next. Never let anyone else narrate your books dude. Please. God Bless. 🖖🏼

A different perspective.

It’s truth. No condemnation. Excellent insight. I was confirmed by the love of Jesus and not judgement. We all judge ourselves harder than Jesus does. A very great read.

It’s never too late for Grace

This book just changed me. I also had a amazing time with good laughs. Jesus is so much more and God so much bigger than we can imagine and yet Jesus show that so much simple then our minds usually take as complicated. Belong, believe then behave 3 words from this book that I’ll care with me forever. It’s everything so much more about be who we are then follow rules, it’s all about Him.

Good for a simpleton like me!

I have been searching for a deeper understanding of Jesus as he keeps interupting my thoughts daily!
Previous to this book. I listened to Ravi Zacharias - Why Jesus? although interesting and in depth I got a bit bored found myself going back a lot as my mind kept wondering.
I found Jesus Is by Judah Smith a lot easier to follow, he kept it simple and fun made me smile at his jokes and gave me food for thought. I really enjoyed listening to Judah and felt the joy of Jesus in his book. Would recommend it to anyone who has no idea who Jesus is or has never read the bible before.

Amazing witness to an amazing Jesus

Nicky Gumbel mentions Judah Smith in his daily devotional, Bible in one year. Something along the lines of inspirational. If Nicky Gumbel recommends listening to someone, I look that person up.
I was not disappointed. Loved the fact that Judah narrates his own book.
His message is clear, Jesus loves us. If we live the way he wants us to, i.e. love God and our neighbour, the world will be a better place.

Complete twaddle

This book has to be the biggest load of twaddle ive ever listened to. It lacks depth and resembles a Hollywood take on life. Awful.
