The desire to know God intimately is the great challenge of the Christian faith. Yet, how many are willing to pray the deeply personal prayer that makes it possible - the prayer to be made like Jesus?
Michael Phillips shares how he has taken up that challenge. Then, he examines key turning points in the life of Jesus that illuminate what it means for each of us to be conformed to the image of God’s Son and to love like Jesus, think like him, pray like him, and trust the Father like him.
In some ways, this is a dangerous book - dangerous to status-quo spirituality. For the journey toward Christlikeness may be painful. Yet, that journey leads to the ultimate purpose God intends for all his sons and daughters.
After reading Make Me Like Jesus, Bishop William Frey commented: “Michael Phillips offers a much-needed corrective to…superficial descriptions of the Christian life. He dares us to abandon all candy-coated versions of the gospel.”
