If you loved The Purpose-Driven Life and One Month to Live, then you’ll love The Jesus Experiment. Popular author and speaker Bill Perkins challenges you to spend twelve weeks discovering what it really means to live like Jesus. More than a book, it’s an invitation for you to try becoming like him in your feelings, thoughts, words, and deeds. Each week, you’ll focus on a different aspect of Jesus’ life, including how he faced his fears, how he talked with God, and how he helped others. As you examine your own life in light of the Lord’s, you’ll be amazed at how your mind and heart will change to more closely reflect his.
I was very much looking forward to reading this book, because it sounded so wonderful! Don't get me wrong, it was a great book. But it wasn't quite what I expected. It focuses on one aspect of Jesus' personality each week, and then breaks it down on how He displayed it and how we can display it in our own lives. I really like the concept, as that is what the Bible calls us to do. However, I felt like they were very vague aspects of His personality; ones that we should be displaying anyway. This is still a great book, and I do recommend it for those who are looking to shake up their faith a little!
