Like the original edition, “Walking Like Jesus” is a challenging but easy-to-read handbook that helps Christians better understand what it means to walk as Jesus did.
The author, Dr. Larry E. McCall (and his wife, Gladine) grew up in the Grace Brethren Church of West Kittanning, Pa. He is a graduate of Grace College and of Grace Theological Seminary and received a D.Min. degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
Since 1981 McCall has been on the pastoral staff at Christ’s Covenant Church in Winona Lake, Ind. In that time, God has used the church to have a growing impact on its own community, the United States, and various parts of the world.
Dr. Jerry Bridges of The Navigators, writing in the foreword, says, “One of the strengths of this book is that it takes us outside the realm of what we normally think of as Christian character. We see Jesus on a mission; and by His example, we are challenged to live purposeful lives as ‘people on a mission’ ourselves. I have been personally challenged by this book to pay more attention to the actions of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels and to learn from them how I might more and more walk like He did. I trust this book will have a similar impact on all who read it.”
Nathan Zakahi, pastor of the Grace Brethren Church of Sunnyside, Wash., says, “Read Walking Like Jesus” to gain insight into normal Christian living. Read it again to shape your prayer requests for Christlikeness. Read it a third time in the hearing of another.”
“Larry McCall has contributed a timeless treasure to the Christian world in this work,” says Tedd Tripp, pastor, conference speaker, and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart. “I wish every believer desiring to obey Christ could read this wonderful work. It is solidly biblical and a source of inspiration as well as instruction. I highly recommend it!
“In a culture of life hacks and tips for greater productivity, Walking Like Jesus is a refreshing, countercultural call to the slow, steady way of Jesus,” adds Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul. “In it, author Larry McCall offers readers a glimpse of what it might look like to live in Christlikeness today even as we await our future glory. Pastoral and full of hope, this book will turn your eyes to the Savior.”
“Written with a pastor’s heart and a preacher’s pen, Larry McCall helps us see the beauty of Jesus Christ and the Christlike character that the Spirit produces in the lives of his followers. Reading this book will stir fresh affections for the one who loved us and gave himself for us.,” says Matthew S. Harmon, Ph.D., professor of New Testament Studies, Grace College and Theological Seminary, and author of Asking the Right Questions: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Applying the Bible.
