The Way of Jesus is written for those on a journey—from spiritual sojourners to religious refugees. With a focus on our yearning for the Spirit and spirituality, this book opens pathways for experiencing the powerful simplicity in the life and Way of Jesus. All journeys are spiritual by nature, even if we can’t always see the full picture of where God is leading us or why He is leading us there. In their own twenty-year journey, Jonathan and Jennifer Campbell have joined with others to rediscover and embody the life of Jesus. They share a way of living out our spirituality from the core of our being to the very connections that define our humanity. The Way of Jesus weaves their poignant story with a thoughtful exploration of the intersection of culture, community, and spiritual identity. Their adventure is a journey with Jesus toward freedom and a life filled with his love, truth, and power.
Jonathan and Jennifer Campbell have been pioneering spiritual communities together over their twenty years of friendship and marriage. They and their four children are part of local and international teams that exist to encourage and equip new movements of Christ-centered spiritual communities in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. During his twelve years of professional ministry, Jonathan served as pastor, church planter, trainer, and professor at several graduate schools. He earned his Ph.D. from Fuller School of Intercultural Studies. Jonathan has extensive experience in coaching and consulting with leaders of churches, organizations, and corporations throughout North America and parts of Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America.
