This is also a book of heartfelt stories. There is a powerful story of Lucy, a Wiccan bookstore owner, and his embarrassment when he learned how Christians had treated her. There is a personal example he tells of why he felt like an outcast when he was young, and a captivating story of meeting his estranged grandfather. Another story is about a mission trip to Jamaica and how the people affected his life and the choices he made. Even more poignant is the tragic story of Horatio Spafford and his utterance of It is Well With My Soul.
Although there are many serious topics covered, this is not a stuffy lecture book from the author. This is written in a contemporary Christian manner with references to pop-culture and current events. Each chapter is followed by Questions for Reflection and Discussion which would make this an interesting and informative Sunday School lesson book or book club selection. The Jesus Sessions is perfect for teens to young adults.
