The reason why it took me so long to read this book was that I misplaced it for several days, but wanted to read it. Most of the book was extremely interesting. My book was actually the orange paperback version, but I could not find the ISBN on Goodreads. The book emphasized over and over that enthusiasm must be part of the faith. That even means that children watching their parents in days prior to getting ready for church must "feel" that the parents are just as excited about going to church as they would be in going to a party. I definitely agree with that. People are always watching Christians, looking for them to be negative or do wrong. A joyful spirit can bring many more willing people in the church. Willing people usually stay and get caught in the spiritual process. Unwilling people or those who have been soured by bad circumstances often don't stay long and don't contribute to the calling of Christ. Another point that was made throughout the book was Jesus' struggles as a human. He had to experience many things that we all go through, and say "no" to sin, as well. And, it was not easy for him. And, knowing that Jesus was so willing to do that for us should be motivation to be loyal and enthusiastic about our faith. Lots of good Scripture was quoted in this book, as well. ( )

Used as a devotional and all about the idea of our becoming like Jesus. Subtitled 'God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you that way. he wants you to be ... Just Like Jesus.' Good stuff ( )

Max Lucado is the author of a number of inspiration, gift and children’s book. In ‘Just Like Jesus’, Max takes us on a journey to restore our hearts and to understand how we can change aspects of our lives to be ‘Just like Jesus’. In each chapter we look at different ways in which this can be done and for us to ultimately model our lives on him, settling for nothing less. We seen in each chapter examples of the way that God loves us – just the way we are, but that he refuses to leave us the way that he often finds us – in despair, broken, lost, searching.

Max has a very clear and engaging style of writing as if he is having a conversation with you. I didn’t want to put the book down and throughout felt inspired to stretch myself, he encourages you to be and do more with the life you are living.

Just like Jesus is not one of those ‘single read’ books, but it’s that kind of book filled with so many interesting nuggets you will undoubtedly find yourself going back to again and again.
