too often we've dumbed down the worth of jesus christ into either a get-out-of-hell free card, or a be-beautiful-for-god teen magazine
he's worth more than metaphysical fire insurance
he's worth more than cosmic cosmetics
this book takes us through eight metaphors for understanding jesus' work to reunite us with god, with our true selves as spiritual people, with others, and with the world.
each of these metaphors is accompanied by a personal testimony of someone affected by this thinking, a personal prayer, and a children's illustrated parable (which, really, is the coolest part)
