the Jesus experiment

the Jesus experiment
Bill Perkins

The book begins with the author explaining why he decided to write this book. The author wanted to see what would happen if he focused on learning to speak, act, think and pray more like Jesus. What if he concentrated all of his effort into becoming more like Him?

The book is divided up into 12 chapters. So if one chapter is read each week it will be a "12-week journey".  Each chapter takes a different aspect of Jesus' life and discusses it to find out how we can better mirror Him. At the end of each chapter are discussion questions and a chart for the reader to use in gauging how he/she responds to certain situations and if it was the Christ-like way or needs improvement.

I'm working my way through the book, but so far have been very impressed with the insights and thought-provoking questions in each chapter. This is a book that is okay to read alone, but would also work really well in a study group. There is no way you can go wrong in trying to be more like Jesus.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
