Jesus centered: one of my best reads this year!
5 stars By AceoftheHouse, Dec 19 2017
I just love this 218 pages yet very light book, handy to take everywhere. It's basically what we Christians have to be reminded all the time, the stories about He showed us thru the Bible stories how to live according to His life...what is more important for Him and should be for us. Sometimes we live accustomed so much to this material world, we forget we're Christians (followers of Christ) and we forget to follow His examples and we neglect to live our lives according to His way. This book just shows us our way and Jesus' way. It's nice that there's a portion "For Reflection" at the end of some of the chapters. It's one of my best reads this year!
