When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette – Book Review and Recommendation

This is perhaps one of the most unusual book titles I’ve read, but after you read the book, it makes perfect sense. It’s a powerful book designed to speak to your heart and challenge you to truly allow Jesus to live in you.


From the very first words, I got caught up in the engaging writing style of Max Davis. As I continued reading, I related to his experiences and felt inspired by his journey.

The first chapter about the girl in the coffee aisle is a must read. I can’t imagine what it must be like for that poor girl, but I’m inspired by her positive attitude and spirit. I would love to learn more about her and her ministry.

The chapter about the green-eyed blonde encouraged me. It’s a chapter that I think we as filmmakers can especially learn from. God used a teen girl  walking down the school hallway, living a godly life, not preaching or sermonizing, just allowing God to live through her, to change a life. She was the light in the darkness without having to say a word. I love that!

And finally, Max’s story about hearing God’s voice is something I can relate to. There have been several times in my life when God has spoken like that to me, and it’s an amazing thing to experience. I loved that even though God revealed what Max was going to do,  it didn’t actually happen until many years later. Isn’t that the way God often works?


When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette. As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”
