My good friend Joe Stowell points out that after 9/11, God was—at least temporarily—back. But, in the mushy ecumenism that followed the attacks, Jesus was not welcome. Rather than indulge in hand-wringing, Stowell analyzes the problem and goes on to provide wise, practical principles for making Jesus known in our challenging day and in our jaded culture.

In The Trouble with Jesus, Joe Stowell exposes the emptiness of the post 9/11 American spirituality as paganism dressed up in the clothes of patriotic unity. The book is a "must-read" if you call yourself a Christian. As your eyes read the words, the ears of your heart will hear the clear trumpet call of the King as He rallies His troops, challenging each of us to lift high the banner of His Name!
-Anne Graham Lotz, AnGeL Ministries
In this passionate, persuasive, and practical book, Joe Stowell offers a powerful antidote to the all-religions-are-equal attitude that's sweeping America. The answer is Jesus. Read this inspiring book and learn fresh ways to bring others to Him.
-Lee Strobel, Author, The Case For Christ and The Case for Faith
Everything about this book is a crucial and timely people. This is a "must read" book for every believer, especially spiritual leaders. Thought-provoking and highly motivational to me personally.
-Henry T. Blackaby, Home Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention
Jesus and the message of the Cross don't always bring "peace" but often cause a clash with contemporary "spiritual" philosophy. Joe Stowell has written a thought-provoking book that challenges Christians to shine as light in a post 9/11 world where the word "God" is acceptable but "Jesus" is not.
-Pastor Jim Cymbala, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church
Joe Stowell's latest book, The Trouble With Jesus, is a compelling testimony to the pre-eminence of Jesus and a clear call to authentic Christian faith. In a post 9/11 world of new paganism and religious confusion, this is a message which begs to be read. I am so thankful for Dr. Stowell's willingness to share his bold heart and faithful witness. He is God's man with God's message for our times. This book is a life-changer!
