Publisher's Description

Jesus must be our model for ministry. Sounds obvious, right? Or is it? Jesus, in all His humanity (and all His divinity) shows us the best possible way to live. Through the way He lived, He modeled the priorities of how to multiply "much fruit." The proof being His disciples. Following Jesus' example, His disciples then changed the course of history.

How then can we follow Jesus' example? We must study His life. How did Jesus pray? In what types of relationships did He invest? Where were His priorities? Can my priorities be His priorities? Can I walk like He walked? What we do with Jesus MATTERS. Global ministry trainer Dann Spader practically and helpfully walks us through 10 weeks of exciting, ministry-altering study to really begin to walk as Jesus walked.

    Long time readers know my desire to write discipleship curriculum. It's been a passion of mine for years and is something that I work hard at. As I make progress on that, I occasionally check out other resources to see what is available, what works, and what's missing from the conversation. One thing that I am particularly passionate about is Missional-Anabaptism, looking at how historic and modern Anabaptist faith drives the missional conversation.

    Dann Spader probably wouldn't call his book Walking as Jesus Walked Missional or Anabaptist, but it certainly has a lot to appreciate.

    It's a gospel heavy look at the work of Jesus, arguing that we need to look not only at Jesus what Jesus did, but how Jesus did it (message and method). Spader explains, "The word translated 'walk' in this passage [1 John 2:6] is the Greek word peripateo. It is used in the New Testament to mean 'following, making progress, regulating one's life, or conducting oneself' after the pattern of another person. To walk like Jesus, then, means that we are to emulate the pattern of living that Jesus modled for us."

    The book is divided into ten different weeks and focuses on the key aspects of Jesus life, ministry, and discipleship goals; topics like Holy Spirit dependence, prayer, pointing others towards God, and intentional loving relationships. Each week has five days for personal study and a time to come together for group process, discernment, and encouragement.

    The goal of any Jesus follower should be to not only produce fruit, but to call others into relationship with Jesus. If you are a pastor, ministry leader, Bible study leader or starting a missional community, this resource is definitely worth a look.

    That said, I've got one small critique: the book also claims to be for personal study (meaning no small group required). I'm not sure discipleship can (or should) be done individually. The whole point of Jesus calling people was to bring them into a new community and relationship with God, by choosing to be discipled and disciple others, community is a requirement. Outside of that, I think it's a wonderful resource for people to add to their shelves. As a pastoral leader helping people enter missional discipleship, I can see it as a resource that I will use in the future.

    I was very excited to receive this book! I was excited not only to read this great book, but to use it with new believers and family and friends who do not have a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This book was more than I expected. It will make an excellent group study. The only way to make disciples the way Jesus did is to follow His example. We have to have the kind of relationships He has with people. We have to pray like Him. And we have to worship Him and praise Him! The author has put this 10 week study together to help us really begin making disciples the way Jesus did. I highly recommend this wonderful book! It will help you as you learn to lead others to Christ!

    I want to thank Moody Publishers for sending me this free book as part of their Blogger Review Program, in exchange for my honest review.

    As a current Bible College student with only one more semester to finish to get my Bachelor's degree in Biblical Study and Ministries, I was excited to not only read this book, but perhaps to use it in conjunction with my studies. I was not disappointed! This will make a wonderful group study. The only way to make disciples the way Jesus did is to study His life. We need to pray the way He prayed. We need to invest in the types of relationships He did. We need our priorities to line up with His priorities. More than any of that, we need to know that what we do with Jesus matters. Dann Spader has put together this 10 week study to help us really begin making disciples the way Jesus did. In order to do this review in a timely manner, I simply had to read through the book, so I didn't have time to actually go through the 10 week course, but as soon as I have a semester break for the holidays, I plan to begin a more in depth study of the material contained in this book.

    I wish to thank Moody Publishers for supplying me with this free book as part of their Blogger Review Program, in exchange for my honest review.
