The Likeable Christian: A Journey Toward the Radical Love Jesus Taught Us to Live
by Justin Lathrop
It’s time for a rethink. For those of us seeking to live a life that is pleasing to God, it’s tempting to get caught up in the specifics how to vote, which church to attend, how to do communion. And while none of these concerns are unimportant, they’re not nearly as important as the greatest command we have ever been given: Love God and love one another. That’s likeability. Likeability isn’t easy, but in The Likeable Christian Justin Lathrop discusses ways to glorify God in our everyday lives by living more like Christ, actually doing what He did, and loving people the way He loved them. When we live like that, we can be free, because the rest is up to Him.
“The Likeable Christian makes the compelling observation that Christians can spend more time defending their faith rather than living it out. Justin challenges us to take a hard look at the way we treat people and revisit the way Jesus lived.”
- Christine Caine, Founder of the A21 Campaign and bestselling author of Unstoppable
“I wish The Likeable Christian had been around for me to read when I was young in my faith. Justin’s message is universal and important. It offers guidance and reassurance to those of us who are looking to live out biblical teachings more fully and in a way that won’t ostracize us from others.”
- Dr. Sam Chand, Leadership consultant and author of Leadership Pain
“Anyone who has felt disliked because of his or her faith needs to read this book. In The Likeable Christian, Justin talks about the many reasons a Christian can be hated for his or her beliefs and offers practical wisdom and insight about how we can win the hearts of many without compromising our convictions.”
- Jenni Catron, Church leader and author of Clout and Just Lead
