    A Walk in HIS Footsteps

    In March of 2009, I traveled through Israel and Jordan, walking in the footsteps of Jesus. It was a wonderful experience, one that really brought to life the Bible stories I had grown up hearing and reading. For the first time in my mind, Jesus was more than God's son. He was more than our Savior. He was real. He was tangible. He was human. He was a man who walked and talked, who loved, who rejoiced and who cried. To walk the roads He walked. To visit the towns He visited. To see, hear, smell, and taste what He did when He lived, was a faith-changing adventure I wish every Christian could experience.

    If a trip to Israel and Jordan is not in your immediate future, Robert Mounce's book Jesus In His Own Words [B&H Books; Original edition (September 1, 2010)], may help to accomplish the same task. Jesus in His Own Words combines the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) into a first-person account of the life and ministry of Jesus. It is Jesus telling His story. Mr. Mounce writes in a straight-forward, non-assuming manner enabling the reader to explore and experience the life of Jesus without the intimidation and confusion that sometimes comes when reading even a modern translation of the Bible. While Jesus in His Own Words is in no way meant to replace the Bible, in my experience it will help the reader to better understand what she is reading as she reads through the gospels in the Bible.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I relived some of my travels from the Spring of 2009, while gaining knowledge of Jesus, His teachings, and His life. If I am ever blessed with the opportunity to travel in Jesus' footsteps again, this book will be in my pocket. Until that time, however, I will continue to read, to enjoy, and to learn.

    Special thanks to Blythe Daniel of The Blythe Daniel Agency, Inc. for sending me a review copy. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts printed in this review are entirely my own.
