We follow after American Jesus, Emergent Jesus, and Mr. Rogers Jesus, just to name a few. Each reflects some aspect of Jesus, yet all fall short of Real Jesus. Jamie Snyder's new book sheds light on these counterfeit versions while showing you how to imitate the one true Messiah--because before you can become like Jesus, you first have to discover what Jesus is really like. Includes questions for individual reflection of group discussion.
Jesus invited his disciples to follow Him. Yet today many Christians and churches are unintentionally following counterfeit versions of the Savior such as the American Jesus, the Emergent Jesus, or the Mr. Rogers Jesus. Not surprisingly, most look a lot more like us than Jesus.
In Like Jesus, author Jamie Snyder exposes the counterfeit versions of Jesus while taking readers on the three-stage journey of Imitation, Identification, and Intimacy. Because the only way to become like Jesus is to discover what Jesus is really like.
