I highly recommend this book! Oct 31, 2002
"This book contains stories of frontline heroism that will inspire your children, keep you awake at night, and redefine what it means to live whole-heartedly for Jesus. Buy a copy for your children, for your friends, and if you dare, buy one for yourself as well!"
Captiviting personal story & interwoven practical principles Jan 18, 2001
I confess to being a voracious reader of fiction. It is normally my preferred genre. But once in a great while I run across a non-fiction book that demonstrates that truth really is more fascinating than fiction. Ross Tooley's book "Following Jesus" is one such book.
My wife had to plead with me to turn off the bedside lamp, because once I started reading "Following Jesus" I didn't want to put it down. It is the story of how God transformed an ordinary person - can you believe a twelve year old shoplifter?- into a fully devoted, effectual servant and teacher with a world-wide ministry.
What makes this story more than just another autobiographical account is the skillful interweaving of practical principles into the narrative. Thus the book is not merely inspirational, it is also instructional.
Whether a person is just beginning their faith walk, or are leaders in their Christian community, they will find this to be a worthwhile, maybe even life-changing read. I've already ordered several additional copies to pass along to friends.
