Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Don't get stuck at asking "What would Jesus do?" Be equipped to do it.

Chicagoland pastor Robby Dawkins hadn't moved past that question either--until he discovered that the miraculous things Jesus did during His lifetime are not just history. They're today's reality. When he started living the way Jesus did, he started living life, as he says, straight out of a superhero movie.

So can you. In this dangerous book, you'll learn simple, practical ways to take hold of your God-given "power tools"--prophetic ministry, healing, ministering the presence of God and deliverance from demonic power. And through amazing but true stories from the front lines of ministry, you'll see what happens when ordinary Christians harness God's superpower to bring His Kingdom to earth.

It's time to beat the sickness, suffering and despair of the impossible. Time to embrace a powerful faith. It's time to do what Jesus did.

"Do What Jesus Did is a great read for anyone wanting some motivation to step out and share God's heart with others. Not only are you encouraged with some pretty cool stories, but Robby also shares some of the encounters that didn't always go as planned. It's a motivator for anyone who wants to see God move in the lives of the people around them. We may not see the results every time, but here's to trusting that as we step out, we will see our Daddy's love shine through." --Revival Magazine

"People who put their faith in Jesus can do the same works he did: heal the sick and injured, multiply food, cast out evil spirits, and break through to the hardest hearts with the love of God. Pastor Robby Dawkins tells how gang members in Aurora, Illinois, receive Christ's love until this highly violent city becomes murder-free. Prostitutes, witches, atheists, and murderers experience God's love and miraculous healing through ordinary people and gladly give their lives to Christ.

Here's an example that Robby shares in the book:
"Without really having any idea of what I was about to say next, I told the woman, 'I hear God saying he's about to completely heal your father and give him a brand-new heart . . .'
. . . When the woman called back again crying hours later, my heart sank. . . . I could just make out her words through the sobs, and I wasn't sure that I had understood. 'Your dad,' I said, 'he's . . . dead?'
She said, 'No--he's doing great!' Nobody was more surprised to hear that than me."

It's not a fairy tale, and it's not limited to pastor Dawkins' ministry. It happens all over the world. But Do What Jesus Did emboldened this reviewer to proclaim and see breakthroughs for friends and strangers alike. Dawkins' book bears some resemblance to Power Evangelism and Power Healing, (both by John Wimber and Kevin Springer). Dawkins' book raises the bar with these revolutionary discoveries:

1. Even doubters can do miracles.
2. One doesn't have to hear a message from God to proclaim a needed event into happening.
3. "Pushing to failure" builds spiritual muscles like nothing else.

This book can change the lives of its readers and of all they touch. It dares them to take the plunge into God's dynamic love."--

About the Author

Robby Dawkins, born to missionary parents, knew from a young age that God had called him into ministry. He and his wife, Angie, responded to God's call to plant what is now the Vineyard Church of Aurora, Illinois, which they have pastored since 1996, and which uses power evangelism continuously. He has traveled to over 30 countries, including many Muslim nations, helping build the Church internationally. Robby and Angie have six sons and live in Aurora, Illinois.

More About the Author

Born to missionary parents in Japan, Robby had an early start in ministry. In his father's church he began a children's ministry at the age of 12, and became the youth minister at 16 years old. Robby says, "I knew from a young age that God had called me into ministry. My parents say that from the age of 2, I told people that I would grow up and be a missionary." In many ways that has been the case in Robby's life.

Robby and his wife, Angie, married in 1992, then went on to pastor the Vineyard Church of Aurora, IL from 1996-2013. They feel God called them to plant in a poor urban community, and continually use "power evangelism" to gather for the church. They estimate that over 50% of current attenders have come to Christ at the Vineyard Aurora, and that almost ¾ of those have come through "power" encounters.

"In addition to starting and pastoring this church, God has called me for the purpose of building up and equipping the local church with power tools for harvesting," Robby shares. These "power tools" are prophetic ministry, healing, ministry of the presence of God, and deliverance from demonic power. Robby loves to tell literally hundreds of stories of his personal experiences, which include God using him and others he has mentored through the years to see God's Kingdom "break in" with signs and wonders.

Since 2013 Robby has been speaking and writing full time and is currently based out of the Vineyard Church of Central Illinois. Having been in over 30 countries around the world, God has used him to help build the church internationally as well. He has ministered in many Muslim countries and in 2 of the top 10 most dangerous countries according to Voice of the Martyrs magazine.

Robby has been featured in Charisma Magazine, Revival Magazine, and Inside Worship. Robby can also be seen in the movies "Furious Love" , and "Father of Lights." In 2013, Robby wrote his first book, Do What Jesus Did.

Format: Paperback
When John Wimber was a new Christian, he said he started asking his pastor, "When do we get to do the stuff?" He was surprised that Christians didn't do "the stuff" Jesus did in the gospels, healing the sick, speaking words of wisdom, raising the dead. As the leader of the Vineyard churches, Wimber eventually did a lot of the stuff, and travelled the world teaching others about doing the stuff.

Wimber is no longer with us, but his mantle of signs and wonders has passed to a new generation of leaders, including Robby Dawkins, pastor of Vineyard Aurora, in the western suburbs of Chicago. In his new book, Do What Jesus Did, Dawkins tells of his experiences doing the stuff. He argues that if "Christian means 'little version of Christ'" then Christians ought to be "throwing out demons, walking on water, multiplying food for thousands, healing the sick and raising the dead."

If Dawkins merely related stories of specific examples of healing and other miracles he has seen, this would be an inspiring enough book, a great reminder that God does still work among us in remarkable ways. But Dawkins's project is much bigger than that. He wants every Christian to be willing to be intentionally evangelistic and to be "naturally supernatural."

The purpose of healing and miracles is not to impress or display one's own spirituality, but to show love, touch hearts, and transform lives. Dawkins says that when we pray for people, we should always ask for God's presence, and tell them that Jesus loves them. His accounts of praying for people always include a reminder that the healing or miracle is "so that everyone will know that You're here and in pursuit of a relationship with them.

This book is a great mix of the writer's personal stories and teachings based on Scripture. It's not based on hype or just the "coolness" off seeing miracles; this book has a lot of substance when it comes to teaching why and how you can do the things Jesus did. Most importantly, it talks a lot about loving people and having a close relationship with God. It's an easy, fun read, that gains a lot of depth as you get further into the book.
The writer is VERY real, not only talking about situations where he saw healing happening, but also the situations where he didn't (which is something many people experience and struggle with). I had seen some of Robby's videos before buying the book, and had been to one of his conferences, and I can tell you he's the real deal - God really uses Robby to stir up a hunger for God in people.
I've been practicing what I've learned through Robby's teachings for about a year now, (even before getting this book), and have prayed for people in the streets and seen them healed, as well as 2 people in my family. It all comes down to how much you'll be willing to risk to do what Jesus did. My life has completely changed as I started practicing what I learned, and I can't help but want to tell everyone about how awesome it is to participate with God in what He likes to do. I just bought 10 more copies of this book to give to friends, and I'm sure I'll be buying even more copies as presents to others in the future. I definitely recommend this book!

Format: Kindle Edition
Charles Sheldon's book In His Steps inspired many Christians to ask, "What Would Jesus Do?" if Jesus were in your situation. Author Robbie Dawkins turns that question on its head in his book, Do What Jesus Did. While Sheldon's classic novel focused on living out your faith with integrity and modeling your character on the life of Christ, Dawkins has a somewhat different tack. Dawkins urges Christians to actually do what Jesus did-things like healing the sick, speaking prophetic words, casting out demons or raising the dead. It isn't that Dawkins doesn't appreciate how Christ models moral perfection for us to imitate, but he challenges Christians to experience the supernatural character of the Kingdom of God.

Dawkins is the pastor of a Vineyard church in Aurora, Illinois which ministers among the urban poor. In his capacity as pastor (and police chaplain for the city of Aurora) he has witnessed God change the lives of all kinds of people (including leaders of the notorious Latin Kings gang). God's supernatural healing has broken into people's lives as Dawkins (and other members of his church have prayed). He has seen people delivered from demonic oppression and God has blessed people through prophetic words. In this book, he offers practical advise for entering into supernatural ministry (in the tradition of John Wimber's Power Evangelism).

Whenever I read a book like this that is chocked full of stories of healing and deliverance, my first reaction is to be a little skeptical. I didn't know of Robbie Dawkins before reading this book and some of his stories are outlandish (as all miracle stories are). However Dawkins doesn't just include success stories. There are stories of heartbreak and failure as well.

Super excited to be reading Robby Dawkins's book, Do what Jesus Did! I highly encourage you to get his book. I've had the opportunity to be around Robby, and all I can say is that he is super legit. He's not just super legit because he's gifted or a RISK taker, although I honor and greatly admire his gifting and his risk-taking stories. To me, what makes him super legit is he is all about equipping others to do the ministry of Jesus and not just building a platform for ministry for himself. He's a true equipper and practitioner. He reminds us, like John Wimber did best, that everyone gets to play. I love his honesty, values, integrity, and character, and that he loves his wife and kids. Robby's the real deal. He's a real guy who's living his faith out loud and encouraging others to do the same.
I love this statement I've heard from Robby, "It's really not about gifting, its about our availability. God puts his ability on our availability." We have a lot to learn from Robby. I know I have, even in the limited time I've had being around him. I can't wait to learn more as I read his book an gain from his insights, risk taking and practical hands on day to day living out the kingdom.
I'm sure this book is going to stir a deeper hunger to do what Jesus did in all those who read Robby's book. Don't just read the book, but step out and be a risk taker like Robby. Make yourself available for God and you'll see how God will pour out His ability upon you and through you to advance His Kingdom. In doing so you'll quickly learn it's really that simple... Making yourself available. The best way to learn is always by doing. Thank you, Robby, for writing this book, living out the kingdom, and calling us all to do what Jesus did. Your a true encouragement bro!
