the extraordinary love and compassion of a remarkable man that radiates and illuminates an ordinary world who is jesus his name is recognized the world over. christians claim to follow him. muslims honor him as a prophet. and many jewish rabbis regard him as a great teacher. everyone knows about jesus but how many of us fully understand what he was like as a person? in love like jesus paul miller invites us to get to know jesus to observe his life and his love as they unfold in the gospel narratives.
the accounts of matthew mark luke and john combined with miller s own life stories will encourage us to imitate jesus way of loving people. we ll investigate such questions as - how do you love someone when you get no love in return only withdrawal or ingratitude? how do you love without being trapped or used by another person? how do you love when you have your own problems? when do you take care of yourself? when you are compassionate people use you but when you are honest people get angry.
so how do you love with both compassion and honesty? in every way jesus life exemplifies the full potential of what we were intended to be. and the better we know him the more we will be drawn to follow his perfect example. paul e. miller is executive director of seejesus as well as the best-selling author of a praying life among other works. with the help of his ministry staff miller creates and conducts interactive discipleship seminars throughout the world. he and his wife jill live in the philadelphia area and have six children as well as a growing number of grandchildren. .
