Publisher's Description

“It may appear from the cover that this is a nice book about growing a beard because Jesus did but be warned- you will quickly discover that Ed's adventure takes him, and us, deep into the heart of grace, mercy and the endless discovery of just what the way of Jesus looks like - which, of course, has very little to do with having a beard.”—Rob Bell, Jesus Wants To Save Christians “Inspiring, insightful, sometimes infuriating, often funny, a little weird (like its author) and a must read for anyone wanting to become a serious follower of Jesus Christ” —Cal Thomas “Highly, highly recommended” —Brian McLaren Evangelical pastor Ed Dobson had a radical idea… “Live one year as Jesus lived. Eat as Jesus ate. Pray as Jesus prayed. Observe the sabbath as Jesus observed. Attend the Jewish festivals as Jesus attended. Read the Gospels every week." Dobson’s transition from someone who follows Jesus to someone who lives like Jesus takes him into bars, inspires him to pick up hitchhikers, and deepens his understanding of suffering. Living like Jesus is quite different from what we imagine. “It may appear from the cover that this is a nice book about growing a beard because Jesus did but be warned- you will quickly discover that Ed's adventure takes him, and us, deep into the heart of grace, mercy and the endless discovery of just what the way of Jesus looks like - which, of course, has very little to do with having a beard.”—Rob Bell, Jesus Wants To Save Christians

Publisher's Description

Evangelical pastor Ed Dobson had a radical idea: live one year as Jesus lived. Eat as Jesus ate. Pray as Jesus prayed. Observe the sabbath as Jesus observed it. Attend the Jewish festivals as Jesus attended them. And read the Gospels every week. It’s quite different, he discovered, from how most Christians — including himself — act day to day.

Dobson’s transition from someone who follows Jesus to someone who lives like Jesus takes him into bars, inspires him to pick up hitchhikers, and deepens his understanding of suffering. As Dobson discovers, living like Jesus is quite different from what we imagine.

In The Year of Living Like Jesus, Dobson chronicles his humbling and inspiring year in Jesus’s sandals. Like A. J. Jacobs’s bestseller, The Year of Living Biblically, Dobson’s book is funny, challenging, and provocative. With great candor and wisdom, he invites readers to join him on a year of revelation — a year that changed his spiritual life forever.

Publisher's Weekly

Inspired by A.J. Jacobs's The Year of Living Biblically, evangelical pastor and author Dobson (The Jesus Study Bible) devotes a year to emulating Jesus' life and teaching. His initial commitment to keep kosher, observe Jewish holy days, not shave and read the four gospels weekly expands into an exploration of Judeo-Christian devotional practices. Seeking teachers from several religious traditions, Dobson incorporates Jewish prayers, the Catholic rosary, Orthodox prayer rope and Episcopal prayer beads into his daily devotional life. The book's form morphs from a somewhat choppy daily log into a series of thoughtful reflections on traditions he engages and gospel stories whose messages Dobson aspires to live. Weaving in tales of his fundamentalist roots, work with Jerry Falwell and long-term pastorate, Dobson reflects on the evolution of his religious consciousness: while maintaining a devout prolife stand, he votes for Barack Obama. With dignity and humor, the author addresses his personal struggle with ALS, seeking to model a prayerful response to his degenerative illness on Jesus' approach to suffering and healing. Dobson's strong faith, open mind, humility (“I'm a confused individual!”) and compassion infuse this offering from a self-proclaimed “follower of Jesus.” (Oct.)
