I am deeply troubled by what I see in most churches across our nation today. The average American congregation has less than 100 people. 85% of U.S. churches are at best stagnant and at worst in disappointing decline. Could it be that there are too many church-goers and not enough Christ-followers?As believers, we certainly talk a good deal about following Jesus. But it feels like the phrase has lost its meaning. Its a cliche that needs to be resurrected from the dead. Interestingly, the New Testament has a very vivid word for those who humbly follow Jesus--the despised! It comes from the combination of two Greek words, which mean from nothing. A good English word for despised might be desperado. We tend to think of a desperado as someone outside the law. But originally, the word meant a nobody with nothing, desperate enough to take reckless action to get something of substance for their life.This book is a heartcry to all those who would be desperados for Jesus. Jesus makes us the target of His relentless love. He is the divine Desperado, who will stop at nothing to rescue us to life abundant and everlasting. This is a spiritual adventure you will never regret--a reckless pursuit of our relentless Jesus.Jesus has made us the target of His relentless love.
