About The Book

The constant noise of contemporary life makes it easy to miss the most profound message the world has ever known: Jesus loves you. Innovative teachers Craig Gross and Jason Harper will separate the religious from the real as they show how this simple truth is worth our undivided attention. The authors weave Jesus' narrative with their own stories of serving among the "least of these" in this inspiring summons to world-changing faith. Join them as they encounter shut-ins, drunks, inmates, porn stars, and others while striving to follow Christ in their daily lives.

Welcome to the site. We are glad you are here. The book came out with Baker in September of 2009.

There are many books—too many, probably—that show you, say, seven steps to a closer relationship with God, or ways to a better life, or simple steps to freedom, or ideas to evangelize the world around you.  Some steps are simple.  Some of the concepts are complex.  Those that deal with a pursuit of faith are wrapped in theology, rather than in simplicity.  Both are needed.  Jesus Loves You, This I Know is the latter.

The message of Jesus is as simple and concise as the song many of us learned and sang in preschool: 
Jesus loves me, this I know.   Me.  You.

Practically everyone knows that little ditty. Just about everyone we know does, anyway.

But many don’t know the truth and power of that statement.  The first two words are understood, but maybe not embraced; Jesus Loves.  It is the personalization, when it comes to understanding the word, “you”, things get more complex.  Jesus Loves You.

Regardless the culture or point on the globe that we live, there are some universal effects of life.  Everyone faces pain.  Everyone faces problems.  Everyone has purpose.  An all encompassing “you” makes the love of Jesus all inclusive.  This project compels people to see that regardless of where they have been or what they have gone through there is a love that endures all things. 
You can be forgotten, love finds.

You can be broken, love mends.

You can be outcast, love includes.

You can be… and love works.

Rather a teacher or rabbi, revolutionary or savior, Jesus moved people.  The stories that follow are inspirational, scriptural, hopeful and medicinal.  People in all facets will glean hope by seeing what is so magnetic about Jesus.  

Consider this:  If someone whose spouse or partner just left them were to read of Jesus compelling love would their life not be in that instance? 

Love never fails.  

Consider the person whose so discouraged that depression has sunk their hope for tomorrow, would their not be a glimmer that gives them strength to press forward. 

Love moves forward.

Love is a power phase packaged as a single word.  For many, it becomes even more complex when the name Jesus is added to it.  Jesus Loves?  For many, even that is embraceable because most think Jesus was a great teacher and inspirational rabbi.  But add one more word to the phrase and the statement is more difficult to handle, Jesus Loves You.

You are complex.  ‘You’ has a lot of layers to it.  Yet the all inclusive, all encompassing love of Christ reaches that far.

Jesus Loves You This I Know is contagious and inspiring book with practical insights ripped from the pages of scripture.  Its affect moves to the core of every human soul stirring the reason for existence.  Despite missed moments in life, broken promises, unraveling relationships or disillusionment with established religion, Jesus Loves You This I Know offers stories of real life people who have experience real life redemption.

Find yourself in the pages. 

Craig and Jason

The Sunday School song is normally sung by children under the age of accountability, thus they are types of those whom Jesus told his disciples not to forbid them from coming to him, for "of such is the kingdom of heaven". That is, they are under the grace of God.

To take that truth of God's love which is an expression of God's grace, and prostitute it as a love that He has toward the wicked, even the apostate, is a blasphemy to God and a disservice to the sinner. Psalms 5:4-6 is just one passage among many that prove that God hates all sinners. "The wrath of God remains upon them" (John 3:36) True, Jesus died for all men, but God only loves his elect and extends the mercy of salvation to them: "So then God has mercy on whom he chooses to have mercy, and he hardens whom he chooses to harden." Rom 9:18 A ready example of this truth was the rejection of Christ by his own generation, due to God's blinding and hardening of their hearts: "Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again, "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they would not....be converted"

You can truthfully tell the sinner that Christ died for their sins and God loves all men without distinction as to race or religion, but it isn't true to say that God loves all men without exception. This isn't in the Bible. Neither Jesus, the apostles, or the Church fathers taught this foolishness. Jesus said: "If anyone loves me, my Father will love Him".

Sheila Slater

Where do i find the scripture, Jesus loves me. And where in the bible i can find, how old Issac was when God told Abramham to sacrifice his only begotten son.


I purchased this book and found it awesome

Now I hope to work my faith in a simple way like the authors. Some kind of improvement.



I am interested in learning more. If you would be so kind, feel free to contact me via email.

I found your Web Site by Google
And I wish you the best you can get,
the peace of God through Jesus Christ.

Welcome to read my Site.

How to be prepared for Jesus' coming?

We shall obey the command of the Lord in Rev. 18:4, and do as
he says. Many who call Jesus the Lord do not take a notice of what
he says. This command of the Lord in Rev. 18:4 is the strongest
and the largest revival message we can find in the Bible. This ought
to has been preached and well known everywhere among all Christians.

Yet, the preachers who are speaking about the great Babylon, they
convey the truth only partly because they do not understand that their
own church also belongs to the great Babylon. They cannot se the
difference between the church and the Assembly of God.

In the time of the apostles any church did not exist, and therefore
the word "church" occurs not at all in the Bible. Everywhere in
your English Bible where you see the word "church", it is a
translation error, it ought to be "assembly". Jesus did not build
any church.

I have five Bible translations in Swedish, (the oldest from 1703,
translated from the same original bible text as KJV). Nowhere in
these Bibles we can find the word "church" (kyrka). Nowhere in
the Bible we can find any hint of that the Assembly of God is
constituted of church systems and many religious organizations.

It is at least two Bible translations in English without the word
'church', (WEB) and (KJ3). Perhaps there are more such
translations, I do not know.

The Assembly of God is no Pentecostal church. Please, consider
what this expression "the Assembly of God" in the reality implies.
The Assembly of God must be the same as the Greek word
"ekklesia", and the Body of Christ. 1 Cor. 12:12-31.

Then it is easy to understand that this has nothing to do with the
Pentecostal Movement. Pentecostal churches have existed about
100 years, but the Assembly of God has existed ever since Jesus
baptized his first disciples by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit
gave them the new life in Christ so that they became born anew.
Then the Assembly of God was born. Since then, the Assembly
of God has lived here on the earth generation after generation.

The establishment of the first church took place in connection with
the great falling away. 2 Thess. 2:3. Since then, God's people have
lived in slavery under Satan's false doctrine about the Assembly of
God. We cannot use the word 'church' when we mean the Assembly
of God. Still to day, most Christians cannot see the difference between
the Assembly of God and the Church of Satan.

All churches have come into existence through religious fornication.
People have mixed God's word with false doctrines of evil spirits,
and so new churches appear.

Revival is the releasing of all Christians from all churches and
denominations, the exodus of all God's people from the great Babylon.
Rev. 18:4. The worst obstacle to revival is Satan's false assembly
doctrine, which says that churches and denominations are God's
assemblies. This false doctrine is accepted and believed everywhere
in all churches and denominations.

Belief on this false doctrine leads to spiritual blindness, so that people
cannot see the difference between the Assembly of God and the
churches. This false doctrine hinders them to understand God's word.

It is very urgent that people get the knowledge of the Assembly of God,
but because they believe on a false assembly doctrine, they want not to
read or hear the warning message of the Lord. They do not know that
the devil uses the churches and denominations to hold the Christians in
religious slavery.

Where is Jesus' church?
Where is the church that Jesus built?

In the free churches the world around
there are thousands of preachers
and bible teachers, but none can explain
what the Assembly of God is

The condition of the Assembly of God
is now much worse than in the assemblies
in Ephesus, Sardis and Laodicea

Restoration of the Assembly of God
after the great falling away

God is the Love
But God's love does not hinder us to study God's word

To whom did Jesus make the payment?


Hi There,

I'm just wondering if the Starving Jesus website is no more? I'm reading the book and it mentioned checking out the website to find your city and get involved etc but the website directed me here. Can you help?

I think it is great what you guys are doing with the Westburo church.
I love the signs you guys had!
"Jesus loves even the Westburo Church"


Please Pray That God opens the doors for Partnership in Ministry for Nepal.


Please pray that .. oh, wait, those don't work.

Do you know what's awesome? Living life and making progress and being happy through my own means -- not acting as though my bullshit myths are true.


Good book!

Connie Iley

Please E-mail me this information so I can pass this on.

God Bless you,
In His Care,

David Baker

Man, sounds like an awesome book! I'd love to get it but I'm broke! lol

Craig Salmon-Gilmore

it took me a few months to begin reading yoiur book after purchasing it at Southbrook in Dayton Ohio. I enjoyed the read and think it an awesome challenge to my past learned world view and to remember that Jesus does love me despite my past and is calling me to a deeper walk with him, I am whole.


If you are looking for the old Starving Jesus website, you can find it on the internet archive site. Go to archive dot org and type starvingjesus dot com into the way-back-machine.

Ashely Choj

Does Jesus love me even though I like girls and I watch daily porn? I need some guidance. Someone please email me and help me out. Much love and thanks Ashley Choj.


I do not want some dead guy loving me .

Sounds like necrophilia to me .



i just finished the book and i must say as a fellow beliver this book has inspired me to change my ministry to others. i have always belived that it didnt matter who i was and what ive done ,that jesus loved me reguardless. this book along with blue like jazz are at the top of my list to recommend to friends. awsome book and god bless


I am reading your amazing book Starving Jesus - but can't find the website! How do I find the website that's referenced in the book?
God bless you for writing such a book! What a confirmation for me - THANK YOU!


I live in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and was so thrilled to get hold of this book. Wow. I now understand so much better just how much Jesus loves me.
Thank you for this wonderful experience. I have passed the book to our youth worker and I believe many lives will be touched by what you have experienced and What Jesus is going to do through your book.
May God bless you and your families.


:)))))))))) iloveu lord ^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^__^

ur my 1st and last hehehee


i love sarcasm


i loveeeeeeeeeeee jesus so much

Sonya Bertram

W0w! I just loved reading this book and significance of building relationships with people was really clear. Doing what Jesus would do, being where Jesus would be and seeing what Jesus would see in any person could change the world.


yes jesus loves you when you drink wine and when you make adultry with another woman and when you rape a woman in the streets and when you kill innocent people and when you cheat your wife and when you fake the history and when you deceive people and when you be cruel with your parents and when you make corruption , does jesus love you although you do all this? very strange, A god orders people to do every bad things without punishment in the otherlife, very very strange . jesus could not change anything in his time and all his friends left him alone to the jews, jesus has no followers and he does not know you, he hates you because you do everything against coexistence , against love, against truth, against reality.


god is amazing all the time jesus loves us all don.t let go or give up hes for us

Jesse Watson

Did Adam Palmer ghost write any of your books?

Michael F

Jesus does love you. Do I agree with everything Craig and Jason say and do in this book? No. But theirs is a much truer relationship with God than mine is.

If we accept Jesus into our hearts the Holy Spirit then works in us to change our lives. My God, Jesus Christ never ordered anyone to rape or kill or do "bad" things. Jesus 1st Commandment: "The LORD our God, the LORD is one; and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." If you are doing that you do not have time to hate. You actually grow into a better person and then you try to live up to his 2nd Commandment: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Try practicing that type of love.

Christianity is not a religion. A religion is man seeking God. CHRISTIANITY IS GOD SEEKING MAN. I know Jesus and want to know him better. I was and still am a sinner but now I know I have been saved. My life is changing everyday the more I spend time with my God, the God of Love.



Lisa Wehler

I just finished reading your book. I loved it. I cried several times as I was touched by the stories. I have always felt God calling me to love "the least of these". Thanks for the inspiration and some ideas and for stoking the fire. I hope to do a book study with some of my friends using your book. Moving on to read The gutter next. I first heard about you guys through one of Rob Bells books, whom I love, and will continue to love






yes our Jesus is alive....Jesus loves all

James Kelly

I absolutely loved "Jesus Loves You...This I Know". It should be read by every Christian to re-learn the true message of Jesus and it should be read by every non-Christian because it shows how "off" the church really is while showing the true meaning of Christianity.


Just remember no matter how hard life is, Jesus loves you


I attend your messages


To be holy Allah says just believe in Me and follow the path shown by Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.M). Its so simple to be with Allah (God) in heaven


i want to join with jesus. i wants to be with jesus always

paul jeremaih

today i now no that jesus love me

Nobin Idiculla

God Is The Love


This book has really blessed me. I am trying to turn my life around from that dead dry, judgmental life. One day I stopped and realized that I was bitter and didn't have any fun living this "Christian life" depressed, miserable, and unclean desires eating me alive. Yet trying to tell someone else what to do. Things just werent adding up to me. I've been praying, visiting different churches seeking a word or help from anyone who understands how I feel. Many feel I'm being rebellious. That pushed me away and caused me to rebel, and kinda turn cold. I'm pressing to get back. I need the Lord. I can feel my soul crying out to Him.

I will be reading the other books soon. Continue doing what your doing no matter how hard it gets, because what you guys are doing is impacting and it matters. Thank you sooo very much.


Herein our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are in this world [Bible not say India any corner or Uganda like nation underground]. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth our fear; because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he can love God whom he hath not seen? This question second term win US President Obama front – that main reason in God hand falling top danger [ both related] !!!!!!!
And this commandment have we from him[God], That he have loveth God his brother [ Not up to US Democratic and it leadership top [trillion K.M] difference and loose making manifesto] !!!!!! He that feareth is not made perfect in love -- But destruction and dead by production top worst after the entire matter real truth latent one after another six foot soil covering that tough trial critical stage 2011 end after in USA history and White House Administration from change start !!! Other way perfect love touch without awake $ 16 trillion loose and so and so X 4 times improve way open that worst politic bondage and no free !!!!!
