To Be Like Jesus - Inspiration From the Gospel of Luke - Book Review

To Be Like Jesus - Inspiration From the Gospel of Luke
by Sister Ann Shields S.G.L

To Be Like Jesus is a small book that is designed to be a weekly relection on the Gospel of Luke. This book is a thought provoking yet relaxing reed. Sister Ann Shields takes you on a journey through the Gospel of Luke in 31 chapters filled to the brim with personal stories, Biblical references and sections for further reflection.

Do you love your neighbor?
How rigid is your definition of "neighbor?"
Have you chosen the "good portion?"
Are you reflective in your spiritual life or active?
Are you proud of that?
Are you still searching for a balance?

Sister Ann asks the tough questions...

Am I trying to save myself rather than letting God be my savior?
Do I do good deeds to earn "brownie points" with God?
Do I think that generous acts will make up for my sins?
Do I pray in public places in order to be seen?

Reading the Bible has always been a struggle for me. Imagine trying to make sense of it on top of that! To Be Like Jesus will leave you feeling like you've actually understood something Biblical perhaps even for the first time. This book is great for all of anyone looking for more understanding from your Bible reading.
