Book Review: The Ministry of Christ, 1000 Days
Jonathan Falwell does a good job writing about the ministry of Christ in his book, The Ministry of Christ 1000 Days. If you are looking for a book that goes into more depth about this topic you may be a little disappointed. I know that I was. I was hoping to hear more insights into the deeper meanings of Jesus, his ministry, and the connection between Jesus and Father God as well as His power and authority through His Spirit. Much of the information that I read in this book was not knew but that could merely be from the education I received with my major in Bible and Theology.
Although, I must admit that if you are looking for a book that can spark deeper discussion, this book may just do the trick for small Bible study groups. Each chapter has a set of questions that you can answer and discuss, as well as a Bible study guide in the back of the book intended to help leaders. Because this book is like walking through the gospels, it would also be a good book for those interested in Jesus or who have just started their journey as a follower of Christ.
