In James ‘ Introduction he suggests the direction of his message: ‘The life of Jesus on Earth was a life of compassion. He lived it and breathed it; therefore, it is not surprising that the bible is full of stories that associate Jesus with compassion. It took a great deal of compassion for him to leave his throne in blissful heaven to suffer and die for mankind. We were drowning in the mire of sin, and Jesus came to save us because he we full of compassion. Romans 5:8 tells us that Jesus came to die for us while we were yet sinners, and completely unworthy of this great gift. If we were worthy, we would have understood his reasons but, despite our unworthiness, he still came. …When Jesus came to Earth, he further demonstrated compassion through his stories and in the way he lived. He led an exemplary life, largely for the sake of his disciples and those who believed in Him, so they could see how He handled issues and do the same…’
What follows are ten ways we can be more like Jesus - ten stories (such as The Good Samaritan) from the New Testament and how they zero in on the bottomless well of Christ’s compassion, ‘setting the example of how we, too, can tap into our own wells to help heal a world that sometimes seems to be drowning in anguish and sorrow. Through a careful analysis and discussion of each tale, the reader is reminded that every living being—regardless of faith, gender, race, political affiliation or orientation—deserves the kind of true compassion that Christ offered to all he encountered.’
This book is bound to be of help to evangelical Christians and those for whom the practice of compassion would benefit. Grady Harp, January 19
I found The Pinnacle of Compassion an interesting read. James Taiwo takes the time to outline acts of compassion and to encourage the reader to apply them to their own lives. The illustrated pictures show what the theme of each chapter will represent. I think people searching for answers on how to help those who are hurting people will find this helpful.
