Tell us a little about yourself. I have been the senior pastor of Christ's Covenant Church of Winona Lake, IN since 1981. I'm also a non-resident adjunct professor of pastoral theology in two seminaries. I married by high school sweetheart in 1975, and we have three married children.
What was your motivation behind this project? I really wanted to help Christians see the beauty of the character of Jesus Christ and be encouraged to pursue Christlikeness in everyday life in the home, school, workplace and church.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? If you think about it, the question to ask is not so much "what" does Christian maturity look like as "Who" does Christian maturity look like. Christian maturity "looks like" Jesus! The Lord's goal for us as His people is to make us more and more like Jesus (2 Cor 3:18). My hope is that people understand that our passionate pursuit should be to have more and more of the character of Christ reflected in our lives. I've taken 14 attributes of Jesus, illustrated them and shown how these character traits also should be seen in the life of His followers. The discussion questions attached to each chapter should be especially useful in various kinds of group studies--Sunday School, small groups, mentoring relationships, etc.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Years ago I had the privilege of discipling some young believers. Our "theme verse" was 1 John 2:5b-6, "This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did." We began to explore how Jesus actually "walked." This book is a result of that discipleship study.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: For people looking for a Bible-based, easy to use study guide for small groups of people from high school age on up, should find "Walking Like Jesus Did" a great tool. We're getting lots of positive feedback from groups across the USA and Canada. Now, we are getting requests to grant permission to translate this book in several other languages.
