I finished The Jesus Creed, by Scot McKnight tonight. Great book. McKnight shows how Jesus’ core teaching of love God and love others is developed through all aspects of his ministry. I always enjoy the crossover between a book that is written by a scholar, but is very accessible to the average reader. You can sense the depth of McKnight’s understanding of the Scriptures without getting bogged down in details that most might find to be tedious.
I’ve already ordered the companion guide and another copy of the book for Dean. We want to explore the possiblity of using it within Pathways as a personal reading/small group study/weekend gathering combination. 40 Days of Jesus… or something like that.
