Quick Overview:

In Jesus Prom, Jon Weece explains how our goal as Christians is to become increasingly more like Jesus. Jesus loves people, which means we should love people the way Jesus loves them: through action. Live, care, give, go—love the way Jesus does.


Jesus loves people. Do we love people like Jesus loves them?

Wouldn't it make sense that those who claim to love Jesus would love the same people Jesus loves? 

Jesus loved verbs. He loved action words such as live, come, rest, learn, hear, give, go,and even die.  Unfortunately, somewhere along the way someone tried to make the word Christian an adjective. So now people speak of “Christian” books and “Christian” music and “Christian” schools. When people use the word Christian as an adjective instead of a noun, the word loses its meaning. Maybe this explains why so many churches have lost their purpose.The noun Christian and the noun church require action verbs to fulfill their purpose. That's why Jesus invites Christians and churches everywhere to perform the greatest action of all: loving people.

Jesus Prom is an extravagant party that celebrates the very people Jesus died to love. You will laugh and cry as you move through the pages of this book, and by the end of it, you'll want to join the dance.  Live, care, give, go—love the way Jesus does.

"If you want a book with a bunch of steps in it, this isn’t the one for you. If you want a book making the gospel message accessible to young and old and to people who’ve had difficulty finding their way in, you’ve found it. This isn’t a book full of facts and information; it’s a book full of stories. And Jon is one of the best storytellers I’ve heard. He tells beautiful stories about hope and grace and acceptance and forgiveness. He talks about the power of being present in people’s lives and the beauty of living a life of availability and inconvenience. This is a book about God’s tremendous love and accessibility to everybody—even if they don’t roll the way you roll."--Bob  Goff, Author of Love Does
