The Year of Living Like Jesus by Ed Dobson

Here's my review of this thought-provoking book:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Ed Dobson and his publisher for sending me a copy of "Te Year of Living Like Jesus..." to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

My copy of “The Year of Living Like Jesus: My Journey of Discovering What Jesus Would Really Do” by Ed Dobson arrived late. Fortunately, I was able to read the first couple of chapters through the Zondervan Breakfast Club email that I get during the week, and I was able to get a really good taste for where this terrific non-fiction book was heading. Written in diary format, the author shares what he learned during his year of living like Jesus. From lessons in behavior, how to eat, loving others, and Biblical versus man-made practices, to humorous stories of Mr. Dobson’s experiences, the reader is submerged in this eye-opening and incredibly challenging lifestyle change.

Not only do I now understand Exodus 23:19, which instructs the reader not to cook a young goat in its mother’s milk, but also the symbolism behind this kosher dietary law! Oy! I LOVED the excerpt that I read of this book, and cannot wait to read the rest of it! A mixture of Bible study, lessons for life and culture shock, “The Year of Living Like Jesus…” is one terrific non-fiction read.
