To do this, we needed an analytics platform that could take incoming sensor data and provide accurate predictions on which public facilities needed servicing so that resources would not be wasted, and we were able to improve customer satisfaction.
In the age of the intelligent enterprise, success means having the ability to deliver on customer expectations and using data and analytics to drive deeper insights and better outcomes. But they're also here to raise a few questions of their own: What if we cleared the deck on our preconceptions of this book and encountered it anew?
What if we came with the understanding that our questions are welcome? And what if these pages presented less of a system to figure out, and more of a story to step into - a story with more surprising plot twists than we might think? Michael and Lauren spent their childhoods in church and Sunday school, they spent part of their twenties finding their way in the world in New York City, and today they're shaping their careers while pursuing doctoral studies in theology and ethics. Along the way, they've had to wrangle very real questions - both their own, and of their friends - about why, where, and how the most controversial book in history fits in our world today.
Join Michael and Lauren as they explore the nature of the Bible - an ancient mosaic of story, literature, history, and poetry - and what it means for this generation and its relationship with God. As the Director of Bible Engagement for Museum of the Bible, Michael McAfee forges strategic partnerships with faith leaders and nonprofits, speaks to audiences around the country, and leads a team of marketing specialists to support the museum's mission.
Sincerely, Lena Morrison Jan 20, David Eiffert rated it really liked it. I'm not a perfect man, but dang it, I try to always shoot straight when it comes to books. And I was expecting to not like this one.
It was a gift and all I knew about Jefferson was that he's that one guy who made that annoying YouTube video. I actually really really liked this book. Granted, a lot of these ideas are not exactly original. But to Jefferson's credit, he gives credit where credit is due, mostly. Lots of credit in that sentence. Way to go Jefferson! Oct 16, Jonathan rated it it was amazing. Wow what a great read! Let me elaborate. This book is deep. I would describe it as a view of the Bible so far zoomed out that it gives you new perspective to common stories, messages, and themes.
Sometimes we may have too close of a view of Scripture, but Jefferson shows some of the actual intents behind what God is saying. Honestly, it took me awhile to wrap my head around some of what was being said because I generally have a very analytical mindset, but once I grasped the overview and yet the Wow what a great read!
Honestly, it took me awhile to wrap my head around some of what was being said because I generally have a very analytical mindset, but once I grasped the overview and yet the depth of what he was saying, I was honestly blown away. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to go deeper in their faith and learn more about how much God loves them and desires them.
I loved this book. I knew I would like it since I liked his first one but I didn't imagine I would like it even more. Jeff always finds a way to speak the truth straight to you. Also, his Back to the Future references don't hurt. Nov 05, Joel Pinckney rated it liked it.
Though I appreciate the truth of much of what Bethke has to say, I have a few frustrations with this book and others like it. Extended review to come. Feb 09, Kshema rated it it was amazing. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Nov 18, Wesley Roth rated it liked it.
SAP BrandVoice: Survey Says: Fast Track To Advanced Analytics Is Not What You Think
The Christian life is asking, how can I make what's true of Jesus and his gospel true in whatever aspect of my life? This was a good book, a commentary about an overview of the Bible, with his life experiences weaved in and his call for Christians to make "Life isn't about going to heaven when you die, it's about making heaven true on earth in every facet and level of our relationship with God, others, and self.
This was a good book, a commentary about an overview of the Bible, with his life experiences weaved in and his call for Christians to make heaven true on Earth in our lives. He reminds the reader that "Jesus is the only one who lays his life down for you first, before he asks for yours.
He pursues, he dies, he gives up everything and then calls us to himself. There's no force, only wooing. That's the only appropriate response when we understand just how great his sacrifice was for us. I won this book in a Lifeways blog giveaway, but in no way was influenced in my review. Dec 29, Keli rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed his first book and like most of his fans eagerly awaited the second book. Once the book finally arrived I was instantly convinced this would be a quick day read. But after only a few pages the truth nuggets were hard for me to swallow.
As some of the other reviewers noted it took me much longer to get through this book than I anticipated. But man was it worth it! Feb 16, Rachel Williams rated it really liked it. This one was better than the last book and I recommend that one too. I love how he explains the overall narrative of the bible and the thematic elements that ought to change the way I personally approach my faith.
For me, the biggest game changer was thinking about communion differently. I loved that it was originally intended as a part of a large meal surrounded by my community. I love that idea that coming together and sharing a meal is a restorative process and something Jesus did with grea This one was better than the last book and I recommend that one too. I love that idea that coming together and sharing a meal is a restorative process and something Jesus did with great intentionality.
This is a quick read and a good one for another with a few questions about the way we do church and faith today. Jan 05, Heather rated it really liked it. Bethke doesn't claim to have all the answers, nor does he claim his thoughts are the right ones, but he is honest and seemingly genuine. Like many blogger authors, the book is written in that style, so sure, the thoughts are going to jump around a bit-feeling more like a conversation, than a text. Overall he brings up some really great points, organizes around some unique themes, and his passion and love for Jesus are a great inspiration and motivation for Nov 01, Laurie rated it really liked it.
Here is an excerpt from my review: "Once again, here is a book that all Christians should read but that those Christians who really need to read it probably won't. Maybe if enough buzz surrounds this book and its message, it will open the ears and, ultimately, the minds of Western Christianity. Oct 07, Laura rated it really liked it. This was a great book. I give it 4. I love the research into Jewish history!! Learned so much from that!
The cultural context truly affects what we take from Jesus' message.

This book was challenging without being over my head, which I appreciate. Favorite chapter was Sabbath. Highly recommend! Feb 01, Zann rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian-study-inspiration , books. This author is so real. He tells it like it is, doesn't pull any punches, yet uses humor to keep you smiling while being informed. Loved this book. Will read it again and have already thought of someone to recommend it to! A mind opening book.

You've got the wrong idea / It's not what you think it is
Bethke takes common Christian themes and puts them in a whole new light. I am trying to do Sabbath differently now from what I learned in his chapter on the Sabbath. I would highly recommend his book. View 1 comment. Jan 20, Kyle McKee rated it it was amazing. Jeff does a great job unpacking the topics and tells some really cool and illustrative stories.

Really moved me and made think about some things that I really wouldn't take the time to question. Thank you, Jeff!
Sorry, your search returned no results.
Aug 29, Natasha Harrington rated it it was amazing. Jefferson Bethke does a wonderful job of connecting the stories in the bible to our every day lives. A must read for any Jesus follower. Oct 14, Caitlin Hobbs rated it really liked it. I'm not a Christian, but I'm a fan of Jefferson Bethke. And If I were ever to be a Christian again, I would like for it to be this way. After starting this book nearly a year ago, I have finally finished it! Starting right before moving into college was probably a very bad idea, and as a result I ended up having to start over at the beginning of the next summer.
If someone asked me my favorite "celebrity," I would probably say Jefferson Bethke. Pretty much everything this guy turns out, even if it is just an Instagram Story, is full of so much truth and wisdom.
