Encounter the life and ministry of Jesus in a fresh and exciting new way. In The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus, author and pastor Adam Hamilton explores the earthly ministry of Jesus to help you hear his teaching and view his actions anew by drawing upon insights from history, archaeology, and the geography of the Holy Land. Hamilton uses his knowledge from extensive travel in Israel to enrich many episodes from Jesus' three years of ministry.
Travel to the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized, and the Judean wilderness where he was tempted. Climb the mountain where Jesus may have given his most famous sermon, and take a boat into the Sea of Galilee.
This journey into the heart of the land where Jesus walked, will deepen your understanding of His life, while also increasing your love and faith in Him.
Travel with Adam Hamilton as he retraces the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Once again, Hamilton approaches his subject matter with thoughtfulness and wisdom, just as he did with Jesus crucifixion in 24 Hours That Changed the World and with Jesus birth in The Journey. Read The Way on your own or, for a more in-depth study, enjoy it with a small group or part of a 40-day church-wide emphasis during Lent and Easter or anytime of the year.
Using historical information, archaeological data, and stories of the faith, Hamilton follows in the footsteps of Jesus from his baptism to the temptations to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought.
This 40-day focus will help you and your group grow deeper in their faith, learn more about the life of Christ, spend time daily reading and reflecting upon the Scriptures, and invite families, through the childrens and youth studies, to grow together in their faith. Additional resources include a DVD, devotional, youth and children editions, and a worship download to help with sermon planning.
