If you are like most Christians today, nobody has ever taught you how to develop a Scripture-based view of life and how to live consistently with that perspective. This book - the result of years of research and the author's own personal journey - presents a step-by-step program for making every choice consistent with God's principles and commands. George Barna looks at Jesus' life and uncovers seven characteristics of His worldview that define what Jesus believed and how He acted. He points out that while there are benefits from thinking and acting this way, we emulate Jesus becaues it is the right thing to do, not because of the positive outcomes. If imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery, what better way is there to express your love for God than to commit yourself to thinking like Jesus?
According to researcher George Barna, most born-again Christians live indistinctly from non-believers because they do not think any differently--which is a result of not understanding the basic truths of the Christian faith. In this book, Barna identifies seven core questions that Christians must be able to answer biblically in order to live a transformed life.
