Randy Nemitz5 Stars Out Of 5May 22, 2007Randy NemitzI just finished a 16-week study for our Wednesday evening prayer meetings based on Walking Like Jesus Did. I speak on behalf of the congregation when I say that it has been a fascinating study! As a pastor, I had been looking for a study guide that points the believer to our Master as the example par excellence for Christian living. Walking Like Jesus Did is that study!
Gabe Tribbett5 Stars Out Of 5September 18, 2006Gabe TribbettMcCall's book is without a doubt, one of the most beneficial books I have ever read. The simplicity with which he writes makes it an easy read, but with a powerful, lasting impact. He points us to none other than the living Lord, Jesus Christ. Yet, McCall approaches the Savior with a hands-on, bird's eye view of how to walk in the very footsteps of Christ in everyday situations of life. He makes Christ-following very applicable, desirable, and easy to understand. He clarifies the purpose of why we should follow Christ, and makes a very persuasive case as to the benefits and duties of doing so.In each chapter, he lays out small, digestable portions on the table in order that we may eat of the fruit of Scripture and have it begin to take root within our very own lives. His book, from the very beginning, sets the tone--what a Christian "claims" must line up with what a Christian does--"conduct" (1 John 2:3-6). The book is unlike many secular sources, it is saturated and held together with the glue of Scripture. These are not the ideas of a man, but rather a reiteration of Scripture as found in the Living Word. No argument is made without the support of Scripture and context!What better source for a Christ-follower to study than... Christ himself. McCall challenges to open our eyes and look to Jesus!
Bernie Bald5 Stars Out Of 5September 4, 2006Bernie BaldAs a Seminary student going into ministry, I would have to say Walking Like Jesus did is one of the best books ever written on the study of Christ Character. This book is a must have for anyone who is serious about going into vocational ministry. Beyond just being insightful as to how Christ lived out his earthly ministry, this book gives practical helps on how we can be more like Jesus and help those who come in contact with to more readily follow after him. I trust that I will be using this book often in my future ministries.
Pastor Randy Mann5 Stars Out Of 5September 1, 2006Pastor Randy MannThis book presents a clear, biblical view of discipleship, reflecting our call to live lives that reflect the life of Jesus. I've used it with those I mentor and we are using it with our young people & college students as well. The study questions make it appropriate for small groups also. Highly recommended.
Rebecca Miller5 Stars Out Of 5September 1, 2006Rebecca MillerThis is an excellent book for anyone, at any point in their Christian walk - whether a new believer or someone who's followed the Lord for 50 years. It goes a step further than the popular catch phrase "What Would Jesus Do?" and asks the poignant question, "What DID Jesus do, and how must I walk as He did?" The book examines the life of Christ and the pattern He provided for every believer. Each chapter deals with a different character trait of Christ - His meekness, forgiveness, prayer life, patience, compassion, etc., and then addresses what the life of the Christian should look like in light of those truths. At the end of each chapter are discussion questions that would be appropriate for personal and private reflection, or in a group setting. This would be an excellent book for private devotions or for a small group study. It applies to everyone, in any situation - and is heavily immersed in, and supported by Scripture. I found this book to be both very encouraging and very challenging personally, and would highly recommend it.

Tell us a little about yourself. I have been the senior pastor of Christ's Covenant Church of Winona Lake, IN since 1981. I'm also a non-resident adjunct professor of pastoral theology in two seminaries. I married by high school sweetheart in 1975, and we have three married children.
What was your motivation behind this project? I really wanted to help Christians see the beauty of the character of Jesus Christ and be encouraged to pursue Christlikeness in everyday life in the home, school, workplace and church.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? If you think about it, the question to ask is not so much "what" does Christian maturity look like as "Who" does Christian maturity look like. Christian maturity "looks like" Jesus! The Lord's goal for us as His people is to make us more and more like Jesus (2 Cor 3:18). My hope is that people understand that our passionate pursuit should be to have more and more of the character of Christ reflected in our lives. I've taken 14 attributes of Jesus, illustrated them and shown how these character traits also should be seen in the life of His followers. The discussion questions attached to each chapter should be especially useful in various kinds of group studies--Sunday School, small groups, mentoring relationships, etc.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Years ago I had the privilege of discipling some young believers. Our "theme verse" was 1 John 2:5b-6, "This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did." We began to explore how Jesus actually "walked." This book is a result of that discipleship study.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: For people looking for a Bible-based, easy to use study guide for small groups of people from high school age on up, should find "Walking Like Jesus Did" a great tool. We're getting lots of positive feedback from groups across the USA and Canada. Now, we are getting requests to grant permission to translate this book in several other languages.
