I tweeted more about this book than most! Here’s a fuller review…….

God named Jesus, His beloved and Jesus believed. Jonathan Martin writes out of the overflow of this foundational truth. For identity is key. You and I are invited to defy fear, woundedness and apathy, in this startling and faithful repainting of what it means to follow Jesus.

This is mostly memoir meets theology and a lot of challenge. This book will lead further into the beauty of Gods grace, away from striving and into greater trust! Martin is a wordsmith of the highest order with endless high impact lines throughout this must-have book. Prototype has got swagger, faithfulness and provocation, all in one!

Its not a comfortable read, but will provoke and nurture your soul. Most review books I get feel average or disappointing. Prototype couldn’t be more different.

This is the freshest and more searing writing I’ve read in a long while. My copy is the book I’ve marked the most. It’s provocation, wisdom and truth, brilliantly conveyed. Jonathan Martin is a gift to the church and in turn to the world. Thank you.
