Beginning with the proposition that Jesus had an everyday life, Laurie Beth Jones explores the four fundamental qualities of Jesus that we can emulate in our everyday lives: poise, perspective, passion, and power. We investigate the everyday challenges common to all of us, using Jesus' life as our model. Each chapter includes a meditation and teaching, and closes with questions to challenge and motivate us. She doesn't intend that we remain passive spectators, rather that we embrace life and participate fully. Jones has a special gift for presenting the teachings of Jesus in ways that are at once practical and transcendent. By writing about subjects that are familiar to all, she makes us comfortable with exploring this unfamiliar ground.
This is an extremely readable book, giving much light on the importance of spirituality in our daily lives, the practical stuff. I found this book accessible and its suggestions and meditations very meaningful. You wonder about God even more while reading this book.
