The Year of Living Like Jesus

The Year of Living Like Jesus

$21.99

Paperback

Evangelical pastor Ed Dobson had a radical idea

"Live one year as Jesus lived. Eat as Jesus ate. Pray as Jesus prayed. Observe the sabbath as Jesus observed. Attend the Jewish festivals as Jesus attended. Read the Gospels every week."

This is his chronicle of his year of living like Jesus and obeying his teachings. Dobson's transition from someone who follows Jesus to someone who lives like Jesus takes him into bars, inspires him to pick up hitchhikers, and deepens his understanding of suffering. As Dobson discovers, living like Jesus is quite different from what we imagine.

"It may appear from the cover that this is a nice book about growing a beard because Jesus did but be warned - you will quickly discover that Ed's adventure takes him, and us, deep into the heart of grace, mercy and the endless discovery of just what the way of Jesus looks like - which, of course, has very little to do with having a beard."

Not what I expected
2 stars By Margot, Nov 16 2012
I found this a difficult book to read, possibly because my expectations were incorrect. Rather than learning to think and feel like Jesus and allow this to influence how he interacted with people, Ed Dobson grew a beard, ate kosher, prayed lots of rote prayers, read lots and did lots of things he thought Jesus would do. It is certainly an honest book, written in diary form, sharing his doubts, his embarrassing moments, his struggles, his exhaustion and his revelations. Whilst it may not be an easy read, it certainly makes you think, and challenges you to learn more about the man, Jesus, our Saviour, our Friend, the Son of God, in order to live as He did. I encourage you to read it for yourself.
