The Jesus Code is basically a devotional set up in 52 chapters. The reader is supposed to read and study one per week. It is a Question and Answer format. Hawkins takes a section of scripture and then expounds on it and its application. It isn’t an in depth look at systematic theology, it is a devotional. It offers a concise overview of some important doctrines and concepts. I don’t usually go for devotionals. I much rather get my Bible reading done from reading the Bible. I do like, “Morning and Evening” by Spurgeon, but who doesn’t? Well this isn’t that. It does a good job and is much more than the fluff of most modern devotionals. It is way better than the nonsense, “Jesus Calling” where the author believes she is getting extra-biblical revelation from God. “The Jesus Code” would make a great gift for a loved one who wants a devotional. Hawkins has done a decent job of compiling some helpful biblical information. The money from the book goes into ministry, not Hawkins’ pockets.
