Solid Discipleship Material Sep 25, 2003
Robert C. Beasley's "The Commandments of Christ" is an excellent study for those wishing to more deeply understand Jesus' words "If you love Me, you will keep my commands." The study collects the imperative sayings of Jesus and organizes them thematically. Jesus' call to service, thanksgiving, and humility as well as his admonitions against fear, worry, and revenge lift the heart and mind.
Beasley's treatment is historical, his questions are thought-provoking and his insights are wise. A welcome tonic to the usual more simple bible studies.
A good resource for discipleship and discussion May 9, 2000
If you are looking for a thorough treatment of the commands of Christ this is not the book for you. Basically, the author takes the position that since Jesus is God, then all the commands in the Bible are his. So, for the purist who might want a treatment of just the imperatives given by Jesus Christ in the Gospels and first chapter of Acts, the book falls short. Most of the "commands" cited are in the apostolic letters of Paul. There are, however, good discussion questions and application sections. Both groups and individuals could use this for personal study over a 13 week period. The author's discussion on the Law and grace is stimulating, and he does a good job of explaining why it is important for Christians to follow the commands of Christ. His application section concerning the Ten Commandments is the strongest aspect of the work and worth the price of the book.
