Item description for The Beloved Disciple: Following John to the Heart of Jesus by beth moore...

Overview
Using the example of John the apostle, whom Jesus took on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, the author argues that Jesus still desires to reveal Himself to His disciples today, and shows readers how to live in the reality that they, too, are Christ's beloved.

Publishers Description
John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of his ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom. And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior's empty tomb. Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you. The bridegroom's love is unmatched and inexhaustible, and He is waiting to lavish it on you, His beloved.

From Publishers Weekly
Popular Bible teacher and author Moore (A Heart Like His; Jesus the One and Only) expands her repertoire of biblical studies as she focuses on "the disciple whom Jesus loved": the apostle John. John alone, she reminds readers, stayed near to watch Jesus crucified, and tradition asserts that he also received the honor of penning the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation. John was likewise numbered among the privileged witnesses of Jesus' transfiguration and the resurrection of Jairus's daughter. After this cursory introduction to John's life, Moore goes into great detail describing both minor and major life occurrences from John's vantage point. From his humble beginnings as a fisherman, to his calling as a disciple and the tradition of his eventual exile on Patmos, Moore dredges deep for biblical exposition-perhaps too deep. Moore herself admits to being wordy, and she is; during much of the book, readers may strain to discern how John fits into her latest tangent. Not until the last third of the text does Moore focus on John's writings with single-minded clarity, offering carefully crafted expositions of his biblical letters to the seven churches in Revelation. Moore gives pep talks throughout, urging readers to dig for the divine; sadly, many will find themselves yawning as they attempt to comply. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

More About beth moore

Beth Moore Beth Moore was born on an Army base in Green Bay, Wisconsin, during what her father describes as the worst thunderstorm the city had seen in five years. He affectionately says the Lord brought her into the world with a drum roll. The fourth child of a retired Army major and a homemaker, Beth was raised in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Her father managed the local cinema where each of her four siblings had a role to play. Beth’s job was to hand out samples of popcorn and soda. Growing up in the theater had its perks. Sometimes Beth would be allowed to slip into a movie and take with her a pickle bag full of popcorn and a Dixie cup of Coke.
There in a theater chair, wide-eyed and full of Coke, Beth began a lifelong love for stories. She loved to tell them, write them, and hear them. But the story that captured her heart and consumed her life was not told in a movie theater. It was told in Sunday School-the story of Jesus-a Savior who loved children thought she was special. A seed was planted in her young heart that would grow to mark her life with a passionate love for Christ.
At 18 Beth sensed God’s call to work for Him. Although she couldn’t imagine what that would mean, she made it her goal to say yes to whatever He asked. Beth graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a degree in political science. She later received an honorary in humanities from Howard Payne University. She married Keith in 1978, and now daughters Amanda and Melissa have joined the family. As a young wife and mother, Beth began speaking at luncheons and retreats, Mother’s Day Out, and teaching Christian aerobics.
Beth took a Bible doctrine class at her church taught by Buddy Walters, a former college football player who taught the Scriptures with tears streaming down his cheeks. She fervently prayed for such a passion for God’s Word. It was Buddy who first taught Beth, along with Keith, how to study the Bible.
Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 to teach women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God-Hc, and The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob, Leader's Kit, read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. American missionaries and expatriates have taken Beth’s Bible study groups up all over the world. Living Proof Live conferences are in all 50 states; attended by more than 658,000 women. Ever the storyteller, Beth is known to pepper her teaching with stories and poems written from the perspective of pertinent characters. She communicates with great energy, passion, humor, warmth, and grace. Beth attends Houston’s First Baptist Church, where she hosts an interdenominational Tuesday-night Bible study for women in her city.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beloved Disciple?

John, The Beloved Disciple  Jan 23, 2007
Great insight into John, the one whom Jesus loved, as he calls himself, the author of Revelation. You see he and the others as they walk beside Jesus, growing in their faith in Him. Jesus revealed as they see Him.
 
The Beloved Disciple: Following John to the Heart of Jesus  Jan 15, 2007
Well...if its Beth Moore behind the pen it has to be worth your time and read...
 
Disciple John  Mar 24, 2006
This book is verbatim of the member book so if you have one you don't need the other
 
Deep, Yet Relevant Insights Into the Life of John  Aug 30, 2004
Most commentaries are useful tools, but they read just like comemntaries and are not necessarily meant to be read cover to cover. Beth Moore's deep study of the life of John isn't that way. Moore plunges into the heart of John' character, offering personal insights and practical tips on applying the lessons learned from this beloved disiciple.

This is the first Beth Moore book I have read and I was very happy with it. Many spiritual books are hard to read and take a great deal of discipline. Moore's frequent asides will make this spiritual book a more fascianting read.

She is also quick to point out where she is offering an opinion on a part of John's life that is not made clear by the text. She has done her homework in preparing for this book, having sought hte best resources to help fill in the blanks.

The strongest parts of The Beloved Disciple are Beth's observations on John's relationship with Jesus and with the other disciples. I was especially intrigued by her analysis of John's long life and how it may have caused him to wonder why God did not set him aside for martyrdom. Also, her research on Patmos made me realize he didn't just sit at a nice desk and write away. The exile was more like a labor camp.

The weakest point of the book is her coverage of Revelation. She admits to looking at the book only in terms of how it affects John's life. I would have liked to see her take on the events to take place in the end times.

By and large, however, this is a good book that brings fresh pracitcal and historical insights into the character of the Apostle whom Jesus loved.
 
Refreshing Insights!  May 21, 2004
This is the first book I have read by Beth Moore and I was impressed. After 13+ years as a Christian and an avid reader, this book contains some refreshing insights to familiar passages of scripture. In this book you will get to know the apostle John through the gospels, as well as, his writings (1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Revelations). Moore's research and multiple scripture references encouraged my faith. Moore has a tendency to be a bit wordy and emotional in her writing, however, this conveyed to me her whole-hearted love for God.
