Discover the joy and power of walking in the footsteps of Jesus.
There is an image of Jesus we often possess in our minds, and there is a Jesus of the Scriptures. Unfortunately the two aren’t always consistent. Often the emphasis in preaching, teaching, and writing is placed on Christ’s death and resurrection. These aspects of Jesus’s ministry are obviously essential, but so is His life. Through Christ’s death we received forgiveness and reconciliation; however, His life provides us with something that is equally essential: an example. Without His example, godliness becomes a nebulous notion that can mutate into a religion that doesn’t reflect its founder.
The Character of Jesus identifies twelve core character traits of Jesus and coaches the reader into discerning how these traits can be applied to their own lives and contexts. Covering attributes such as His love, wisdom, grace, generosity, and humility, Daniels presents a picture of Jesus that people will want to follow.
