Book Review: I am A Follow of JesusJanuary 23, 2012
I have read my slew of books on leadership. It seems now a days there are more of them than the average man can read in a lifetime. Although leadership is truly a passion of mine, I will have to say, this book challenged me to my core.
The author opens the discussion of being a follower and what it means. The book is divided into three sections, characterized by four Latin words: Vece (the place), Via (the way), Verita (the truth), and Vita (the life). Most chapters have interactive discussion questions which allows the reader to further delve into the subjects. It is a great book to do in any men’s group. Today, there needs to be more focus on discipleship and this book highlights that need.
I will say, be sure to read the prologue and don’t skip it as most do. Overall, it was a decent read, although there were parts that could be a bit of a struggle to get through. Bottom line, the core theme is one that needs to continue to be emphasized and studied in our modern churches.
