This is a fantastic book. Makes a person consider their own personal walk in relation to how Jesus walked this earth. Would be a great bible study for teens or adults.
Every Christian yearns to be more Christ-like. This book addresses how we can be more conformed to the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29) in four of the most difficult areas of the Christian life: cross-bearing, office-bearing, sorrow, and endurance.
Table of Contents:
1. Jesus' Crossbearing and Ours
2. Jesus' Office-bearing and Ours
3. Jesus' Tears and Ours
4. Jesus' Endurance and Ours
"A Christ-centered tour de force which gets us into Christ's servant heart and asks the pointed questions of what that means for us who are in union with Him. Deeply and affectionately pastoral, Dr. Beeke gives us a magisterial example of puritan-infused, preached prose that is as fresh as the air we breath. Like the puritan Richard Sibbes, know to his contemporaries as 'the sweet dropper' Dr. Beeke has a similar touch, presenting to us the confidence, richness, depth, and encouragement of the gospel." - Maurice Roberts.
