Every Day With Jesus is Sweeter than the Day Before….

1,000 Days : The Ministry of Christ, Jonathan Falwell

1000 Days is a survey of Jesus’ public ministry.  Jonathan Falwell works his way the approximately one thousand days Jesus spent teach, healing, and loving people on his way to the cross.  Interspersed are the author’s personal stories to show how he and his family have related to the subject at hand. 

The man loves Greek!  I have to admit that I like to read what the literal translation of a word is, and this book has plenty of them.   The book is written with a conversational tone, making it easy to read.  Each chapter has questions at the end to help you think about what you have read and challenge you to be more like Christ.  A Bible Study Guide at the end enables this book to be used in a small group setting.

1000 Days is best suited for those who are new to faith in Christ and are just starting to read the New Testament.  There is valuable insight into the life of Jesus as a whole, but for those who have been studying the Bible for a while will not find anything new here.  Like I said earlier, it is a survey, not an in depth study.

I received this book free of charge from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
