Item description for Jesus, an Obedient Son by Michael R. Phillips...
Overview Challenged to discover the New Testament imperative for his life, Michael Phillips takes a fresh look at the Bible to find out what is the essence, the foundation, of spirituality. Boiled down. The raw reality of the gospel. No frills. No excess baggage. He discovers a key that gives validity to an entire life's purpose and perspective as a Christian for right now. Not in some grandiose, far-reaching way . . . but the link between belief and practice, between eternity and now, between Christianity as a world religion, and Christianity as a practical guidebook for going about the business of life in the trenches. For if ever a man walked in harmony between ultimate purpose and the next five minutes, that man was Jesus Christ. And that key to Jesus' life was obedi

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus, an Obedient Son?
...Jesus was not an Angel, because he had free will, and Angels don't ! Apr 13, 2006
....if you read only one book this year, prepare your soul to be inspired by the contents of this wonderfully written book. This text is not theologically deep but it will not tickle your ears either. There's a lot of meat on the bone that will require repeated readings. If you do not know who George MacDonald is, then this is yet another fine reason to jump into the text here. The author, Michael Phillips is dedicated to publishing the works of this 19th century theologian, pastor and novelist. Here is a quote from George MacDonald: OBSERVE THE OBEDIENCE of Jesus to the Father. He did not give the commands, he obeyed them.
This book will answer the age old question: How do I live a truly honest Christ Like Life? Hint! .....It has something to do with the greatest gift GOD gave to mankind: FREE WILL. may I suggest you buy a used copy of this book .....if you can, sometimes very wise people write things of great worth in the margins and in the blank spaces. What else can i say, I'm a big Brennan Manning fan as well, but Michael and George are turning out to be two jewels in the crown of creation. Thanks Michael, keep on writing till the cows come home.
