Item description for What Jesus Did: The Answer to WWJD by Robert D. Prescott-Ezickson...

Overview
The acronym WWJD (What would Jesus do?) has become a popular device for making ethical and moral decisions, and evaluating how we should act in a wide range of situations. But this seemingly ubiquitous slogan has also been used to trivialize Jesus and use his name to endorse some activity or product. Now we also hear questions like: What would Jesus eat? What would Jesus wear? What would Jesus drive? Enough already! If you want to consider this question seriously, then the best way to find the answer to WWJD is to investigate what Jesus actually did while he was here on earth. Jesus Christ was a real man who lived in a real time and a real place -- and his words and deeds are recorded in the four Gospels. Once we carefully study the Gospels and become familiar with what Jesus did, then we will be in a better position to discern what Jesus would do now. What Jesus Did is an in-depth look at the life of Jesus, including his birth, his parables, his miracles, his sayings, his death, and his resurrection. The unique format of this study guide makes it an excellent resource for a preaching series, Sunday School lessons, group Bible study, or personal devotional reading. Each chapter is built around a series of questions to help you gain deeper meaning and insight from the scriptures. And because Jesus expects us to turn learning into doing and live according to his example, each chapter also includes a WWJD action step for applying his teachings in our daily lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Jesus Did: The Answer to WWJD?

Thanks Rob  Nov 7, 2006
Several years ago my friend and colleague, Rob Prescott Ezickson , spoke to me of his project of preaching a sermon from every book in the Bible. I thought at that time it was a rather exhaustive undertaking and I have not changed my mind. But, I wondered what good that would do. As a preacher, I have somethimes wondered the efficacy of a prolonged sermon series, the spoken word seemingly taking second place, at best, to the other media for conveying a message. However, i have been privileged to read the finished product and I stand in admiration of Rob.

QWe preachers rarely do protracted series. In a time when the average person in the pew is woefully weak in Biblical knowledge, the proclivity of preachers to randomly use Biblical texts and the emphasis on topical preachingoften find the scriptures as a foriegn experience, even to the faithful. Firstly, whast has been achieved in God Has a Plan for You, is the reader of this volume gets a taste of every Biblical book. Secondly, the reader gets a sense of flow; how the good news comes to be. Thirdly, there is a familiarity with the characters whose stories every believer should know, the knowledge of them bering an important part of being an informed person. Prescott Ezickson reintroduces us to the scriptures.

But there is more than a reintroduction, sampling , and flow. Critical questions are asked within each chapter as to how the Biblical story intersects who we are and where we are in our human experience. An example is the question, "How much money would you have to have before you would consider yourselv rich?" In the rpesent time many Americans are asking that very question, but without any reference to God. We ask the question in termons of realestate we would purchase, the type of car we would by, and how early we would retire. We might even think that the Gospel is silent to us at this point. Rob, introducting us to the rich young man in Mark 10 and the ooor widow in Mark 12, raises that question in light of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. A whole other dimension, one which is often excluded from our thinking, is now introduced. It is a oint to ponder. It is the challenge of the Word become flesh. We cannot answer it casually. Its answer has consequences for our lives which are eternal.

This book is a good read for the growing Christin. It familiarizes our maturing brother and sister with the scripture and its relevancy for our time. Indeed, God does have a plan for each of us. The book takes that phrase, which can bu used tritely, and confronts us as to what we are doing with our lives.

Ideally, this book would have its greatest use as an adult study. It is the type of book tht should be used by a group of people coventanting together for their growth in Christ. It could by used by new Christians in a growth group who are asking the question, "what now?" It could be used by those of us who may be familiar with the story that we fail to hear it afresh.

"God has a plant for your life." When was the last time we thought of that. Maybe it is time that we again think about it. John Robinson, the pastor of The Pilgrims preached these words when that hearty band left Plymouth,England. "Perhaps God has more light still to break forth from his Word." May this book be used to helf a new generation bask in that light to which our Lord calls them.
 
What Dr. Rob Did!  Jun 16, 2006
The author has done an excellent job of writing both a resource and a devotional tool. As a resource it will help pastors and teachers in preparation by stimulating great ideas to share with their congregations. As a devotional tool, laymen will be inspired as they consider the life of Jesus and his incredible ministry while on their own spiritual journey. Well done!
 
A good read  Jun 13, 2006
This a good book, one of many good books to read on the subject. The author provides great explanations and thought provoking excercises. I truly enjoyed the read and found that this author not only shed a new light on how Jesus lived, but motivated me to examine areas of my spiritual life.

small group aid  Jun 7, 2006
"What Jesus Did: The Answer to WWJD" provides up to 43 focus points on the life of Christ, any one or two of which can be jump off points for a small group study on Jesus. The book is worth it just for the practical and provocative questions that help the reader relate truths about Jesus to real life. Insightful, Biblically reliable, convicting and practical = good stuff."

Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church
 
Dr. Prescott-Ezickson "Gets It!"  May 16, 2006
Dr. Robert Prescott-Ezickson "Gets It," regarding Jesus' life and teachings. This books flows from a pastor's heart to see people live what Christ taught, not just know that he existed. I highly recommended it for anyone who wants to "walk the walk, not just talk the talk."
