In a previous blog post, we introduced readers to the literary work of Frank Viola Author. It explored the categories in which he divided his work, as well as short summaries providing details on what you should read next. We now want to point to another resource available for you, this one from Amazon. A quick visit to this link reveals a detailed book list, complete with reviews (most of which are four and a half, or five stars) and links to each individual work. Let’s take a look at some of author Frank Viola’s best reviewed work.
Frank Viola, author devotes his writing talent to Jesus.
- First up we have Jesus Now: Unveiling the Present Day Ministry of Christ, which also happens to be his newest and most popular (on Amazon, at least) body of work. It also includes an impressive foreword by Leonard Sweet. The book itself tackles the ever important question, “If Jesus ascended into heaven so many years ago, exactly what is he doing today- right now?” Jesus led a life of example, constantly and selflessly helping and healing others. Within Jesus Now, the reader will discover the ways in which Christ works through us, and how his ministry benefits the saved and unsaved alike. It carries a five star rating on Amazon.
- Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ is another popular work, and a collaboration between Viola and Leonard Sweet. This book is an excellent roadmap and passionate exhortation to the restoration of the supremacy of Christ. It does indeed shed light on the belief and worship of Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, but it ultimately aims to go deeper than that. It asserts that Christianity has been made about so much more than it’s namesake; that many believer are aware of Jesus without actually knowing him. This knowledge is integral to the work, aiming to reveal Jesus as the ultimate end all be all. You should never judge a book by it’s cover, but it’s worth noting that the cover art for this book features two letters: Alpha and Omega. These are first and last letters of the Greek Alphabet, the lingua franca of Jesus’s time, connecting Him to his position of Beginning and End. It currently holds a 4.5 rating from over 300 reviewers.
- Last on this list, we have From Eternity to Here, a book that contains a series of vignettes that illustrates a different aspect of God’s love and plan for humanity. The stories run across biblical chronology, from the first book, Genesis; to the last, Revelation. When read individually, they are amazing illustrations of scriptural applications that run deep with themes of powerful divinity and Providence. Together, they reveal light on the mission of God. It currently carries a 5.0 rating on Amazon.
