Think, Act, Be Like Jesus is split up into 4 sections. The first section is thinking like Jesus, which involves 10 key beliefs. The second section is acting like Jesus, which involves 10 steps the reader can practice. The third sections is being like Jesus, which involves 10 key virtues the reader is to have within themselves. The fourth section is transformation, which brings the three previous sections together. Each section has its own introduction. Scripture verses can be found consistently throughout the text. There are key questions, key ideas, and key applications; which the reader can apply their own lives.
Think, Act, Be Like Jesus is a way for the reader to discover a deeper understanding of what to believe, how to act, and what needs to be within them to be more like Jesus. The text covers a wide range of topics which can be helpful to those just starting their walk with Jesus or to those who are thirsting for something deeper. The text is very simple to understand and follow, with plenty of life examples discussed which broaden the meaning of each topic.
I recommend Think, Act, Be Like Jesus to all new followers of Christ and those having common questions about following Jesus which have yet to be answered…until now. However, I did not feel Think, Act, Be Like Jesus to be something that reached out and grabbed me, holding my attention until the very last page. I am not sure why this book did not take a hold of me, but that does not mean it cannot be found beneficial to other readers who pick it up and examine its content.
