I had always limited myself to books that are easy to understand, relatable, and those that are very engaging with lots of anecdotes. Ever since, I’ve read this book, I’ve become more and more interested in books that enhances my Catholic faith, because indeed I felt the Jesus Shock! This is indeed a very shocking book that makes you feel happy to be a Christian–to be a Catholic. Jesus is indeed a very shocking subject, and Peter Kreeft had done an amazing job portraying the Jesus Shock in his book. Jesus is not a self-proclaimed King. He is King because of who He is– because of what He had done and continues to do, whoever holds the the truth, holds Jesus. Peter Kreeft’s excitement about Jesus can be felt throughout the book and I do encourage everyone to read this very short book! It’s a must read!
One of my fave quotes from the book,
“Those who meet Jesus always experience either joy or its opposites, either foretastes of Heaven or foretastes of Hell. Not everyone who meets Jesus is pleased, and not everyone is happy, but everyone is shocked.”
