The essence of Jesus' moral vision is this: His followers are to love God and to love others with everything they've got. Love is not one of the virtues but the essence and summary ofall virtue. Scot McKnight calls this double commandment to love "The Jesus Creed." We can't wait until we're adults to begin loving God and loving others.
In this book Scot works out the Jesus Creed for high school and college students, seeking to show how it makes sense, giving shape to the moral lives of young adults.
The Jesus Creed for Studentsis practical, filled with stories, backed up and checked by youth pastors, and it includes questions for further study.
