Want habits you don't have to break? The Jesus Habits presents thirty-one of them, all taken from observation of Jesus Christ as recorded in the gospels. As wide ranging as life itself, the habits, naming only a few, include: listening, worship, obedience, thankfulness, asking questions, esteeming women, keeping your word, fasting, money, confrontation, motivation, rest, and seclusion. Each chapter follows a similar plan--relevant gospel scripture, Jesus' model of this habit, enemies of the habit, suggestions drawn from both the Bible, and today's life for making the habit your own. Apropos side bars add interest to each chapter, presenting eye-catching information such as: ear worms; blind climber of Mt. Everest; silencing a big mouth; and cotton and aspirin.
Senior Pastor of a rapidly growing Baptist church, speaker, writer, and TV personality, Dr. Jay Dennis mined the gospels looking for what Jesus both taught and lived. The treasures he found are the thirty-one disciplines of The Jesus Habits. Centering on Jesus Christ, recognizing the spiritual struggles of his audience, Dennis bases this book on a simple plan, yet leaves ample latitude for the individual reader to seek ever greater spiritual depth.
Of interest to all sorts of people, housewives to business men, teenagers to retirees, The Jesus Habits book is useful for both group and individual study. This book also serves as a devotional and a reference for those days particular habits seem to ebb away. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
