This discussion guide is a safe place to explore questions you have about Jesus on your own or with a group. You'll take a closer look at John's narrative to discover more about who Jesus was, how he lived and what that may mean for your life.
Who is Jesus? What was his life like? Why was he so unconventional in his day? Why is he still so controversial now? What does his life have to do with ours? Rebecca Manley Pippert creates a safe place to explore these and other questions you may have about Jesus on your own or with a group. In this discussion guide you'll take a closer look at John's narrative to discover more about who Jesus was, how he lived, and what his life may mean for you. Each study is packed with historical information, challenging questions and thought-provoking quotes, but it won't answer all your questions. In fact it may bring up new ones! But, no matter what, it will help get you started on your journey toward faith. Use Looking at the Life of Jesus with other Saltshaker Resources, How to Lead a Seeker Bible Discussion (a step-by-step guide for leaders), Talking About Jesus Without Sounding Religious (a how-to book on sharing your faith with confidence), The Way of Jesus (a book to give away to seekers) and People Who Met Jesus and Spirituality According to Jesus (both seeker-oriented Bible discussion guides).
Pippert is an internationally known speaker who regularly lectures on spiritual renewal, evangelism and character formation for church conferences, at schools and colleges and in pastoral training seminars. She has also written several popular books on evangelism and Christian living. Her bestselling book has sold more than a half-million copies worldwide.
