In reading your Bible, you can't help but be struck by some of the shocking things Jesus said and how to apply them in life. 'Unless you hate your father and mother, you cannot be my disciple.' 'Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven.' With honesty and humility and without being academic, Kuligin examines ten of Christ's difficult sayings and offers practical advice for following Christ. Blended into each chapter are personal anecdotes, a healthy quantity of biblical support, and reflections from historical figures such as Martin Luther, John Wesley, and John Bunyan.
