About-

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus invites readers to enter into the stories of an array of biblical characters who demonstrate a willingness to listen to God. The authors encourage readers to get to know these figures, experience their energies and struggles and listen to them as they speak to today's believers with undiminished clarity, directness and power. By embracing these ancestors in faith and their stories, readers will be inspired to renew their personal commitment to run the course of their own lives--in the footsteps of Jesus--with greater perseverance.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The Bible offers magnificent examples of what is required to be a disciple, waliking on the path that leads to God--a path that Jesus illuminated so clearly. This book draws on those examples with faithful perception and insight, and gives most helpful guidance. It is encouraging to see the Bible put to the service of spiritual growth in this way."
--Raymond E. Brown, Auburn Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Union Theological Seminary (NYC)

"Following in the Footsteps of Jesus is a delightful blend of perceptive interpretation of Scripture and thoughtful reflection on the moral imperatives that flow from the Bible. Through encounters with biblical characters, Coleman and Pettingill offer readers an opportunity to test out their own discipleship and embrace the need for ongoing conversion."
--Ronald D. Witherup, S.S., Provincial, U.S. Province of Sulpicians
