It's All About Jesus was written as an antidote to the extreme focus on the self over the past several decades.
As the authors state in the introduction, "Just go to the self-help section of your bookstore or library and see how many books are written on the topic.... Self-analysis can be good if it helps us to determine our abilities, establish an action plan for growth, or have an honest appraisal of our talent and skills. On the other hand, self-analysis can lead us to negatively compare ourselves with others. We do not all look like movie stars or top models. We do not all have the ability to be a top Olympic athlete or sports figure. We are not all brilliant students or talented musicians. We are not all wealthy and live in mansions, and vacation on yachts or on the Riviera. Comparison with others drives many people to develop a poor self-image and negative self-esteem.... We would like to suggest that there is something even more beneficial, healthy, and powerful than focusing on self: It is learning to look to Jesus. That is the motivation for this book and the desire of our hearts: that we all may begin to turn from the focus on self to a focus on Jesus."
"Chock full of inspiration and encouragement.... A joy to read."
