Nothing is more important than relationships, Holladay states in the opening chapter, and no one was more of an expert on relationships than Jesus was. Drawing on Jesus' practices and teachings, the author structures his presentation of relationship principles much like THE PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE, with 40 chapters to be read daily over 40 days and encourages readers to follow that daily reading plan rather than read ahead. Good luck with that.
The daily chapters support one of six relationship principles that also give structure to the book: placing the highest value on relationships, loving as Jesus loves, communicating from the heart, judging as you will be judged, recognizing servants as "the greatest" and treating others as you want to be treated.
The chapters are intended to be read slowly and thoughtfully. A sidebar within each chapter provides a relevant meditation based on a portion of Scripture; a section at the end of each chapter highlights a "point to ponder," a related Bible verse, a question to consider and the title of the following day's chapter. Readers will likely find it difficult to stick to a chapter a day, either because they're eager to discover what's next --- or because they're hoping to discover something new. Much of the material is basic and very familiar to long-time Bible readers.Read more ›
It is, in some ways, similar to The Purpose Driven Life, in that we read one chapter per day and are challenged to live out some of the presented ideas. But, as the title of the book suggests, we are to grow in our relationships with one another by following the words of the Christ himself. Holladay propounds many of Jesus' teachings, and places them in a format that we can follow day by day.
Great for a solo read, and (in my opinion) better to read as a group.
Our church is doing a group study on this and the message and outcomes are very powerful.
