Publisher's Description

When Jesus was asked to name the greatest commandment, He answered with what is now called the Golden Rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself" (Luke 6:31 NIV). In this eye-opening new book, author Dave Greber asserts that if Jesus were asked this question again, He would answer with the words He spoke at the Last Supper: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another" (John 13:34 NIV). Often overlooked or misunderstood, this "lost commandment" tells us how Jesus wants us to live.

Using stories, Scripture, and practical applications, Greber unpacks the meaning of the lost commandment by looking at seven characteristics of biblical living that Jesus Himself embodied and that Christians should follow to find the joy that comes with following God's desire for us.

"Greber presents a strong case for Christ's intent of the 'new' commandment replacing the 'Golden Rule.'"--"Christian Retailing," July 2009

"There is much excellent teaching about Christian discipleship here, the kind that's life-changing and that organically extends into other areas of obedience and service, such as evangelism."--"CBA Retailers & Resources, " July 2009

Library Journal

The gospel according to Greber, an attorney, is that our conventional depiction of Jesus's deepest message is flawed. While casual believers and nonbelievers alike might assert that the Golden Rule ("Do unto othersÂ…") is the core ethical statement of the New Testament, Greber insists that Jesus meant to replace it with "As I have loved you, so you must love one another" (John 13:34). VERDICT While Greber's insistence on the "lostness" of the notion moves strangely close to a Gnosticism he would surely disdain, he follows the implications of his idea with sense and piety. Recommended for church groups and pastors. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    This book is so packed with information that it is a resource that can be used time and time again. It has the potential to transform the reader as well as the church as a whole. If we live our lives as this book suggests, more will be drawn to Christ as a result of being authentic Christians. This book should be in every church library on and on the bookshelf of every Christian.

    Having read a pre-publication draft of this book, I am very excited for it's release. Few times in each generation a book may be released which has the opportunity to impact the entire body of Christ in a major way. This book has that potential, as it teaches us the how to and why of loving others as Christ has loved us. This is a must read for all seekers, sojourners and serious students of God's word. Let's not miss some of Jesus' most important teachings for a second time.
