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."-- PortlandBookReview.com

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

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!

I get nothing out of telling my story here. Robby has not ask me to do this but I'm doing it because I want to tell the world what this man though the Holy spirit did for me. Two years ago I was in a power chair. I had been hurt working at a Texas youth prison. Better know as TYC. Robby was at my church in Conroe, Texas and I rolled up to shake his hand. I have really moved by what he had taught us. He asked me why I was in my chair and I told him my story and he said "yea but why are you still in the chair?" He asked if he could pray for me. And did seven times. If Jesus got two we get more right LOL. I felt like my body was on fire. And for the first time in years I stood up and bent over and touched my toe's. But more important because of this my whole family has come to God. I'm a leader in my church now. Robby changed my life. And all I can say is people can say it's fake but I'm not fake, Holy Spirit lit me up that night and I live my life for him. I know what happened to me and others in my church.This was a very good read!! You will be blessed!

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.

So - I'm trying to write a review of the book - Do What Jesus Did, but I also have a big heartfelt personal story to share. Do I split it into two posts? One really goes with the other. If you'll stick with what may be a deluge of words - I'll try to share.

Hopefully, all of my readers realize that my core, the center of what guides my actions - is because as a small child, in the 3rd grade, I sat in my dad's truck and gave my heart simply to Jesus. Raised by simple grandparents and a dad in the Coast Guard, then adopted by my godly step mom when I was 5, I had a pretty simple, sheltered `Christian' upbringing. If the door was open - we were there, including Christian private schools in High School.

I spent a rather selfish time - trying out all of the activities that were frowned upon by the Word and my family during my 20's. The Holy Spirit stepped in and told my heart No More around 1995. Since then, I've been learning and experiencing living a life of faith for Christ. Not just being that Christian Girl raised up in The Church, but sorting out each day - trying to listen and walk in faith.

I think that Robby's life was similar. Raised in the mission field, he grew up to be a youth pastor. It sounds like he did his job well, and enjoyed being and working as a Christian.

Try to think of a list of things that you have heard people do followed with the affirmation of `That's what Christians Do". Soup Kitchens? Giving Jackets to the poor? Vacation Bible School? Attending Church? Raising money for missionaries? There is a lot that we do and then claim `Christian Service'. Robby mentions that his life was full of faithfulness, but lacked faith. He describes a phone call that launched him into learning about the authority that we can walk in.
