About the Author

Thus if you want to become good, you need to put your effort not into trying to be good but into connecting with Jesus. The book seeks to provide a curriculum for Christlikeness by placing Jesus at the centre of the reader's vision. Different chapters deal with listening, authenticity, welcoming strangers, compassion, being tough but tender, speaking the truth in love, cheerfully going the extra mile, intentionality, eliminating fear, teaching, serving in secret, dying to self, and being slow to speak.
In a world where the daily lives and actions of the vast majority of people who claim to follow Christ bear little resemblance to the teachings and examples of Jesus, this unhurried book provides a timely reminder of what the Christian life is supposed to be like. I did not fully agree with what the author said about being slow to speak rather than seeking to put our ideas forward in a convincing way, but on the whole I found the book very useful.
