The time you spend reading "1,000 Days" may very well be the most well spent time of your life. This is not a book, it's a journey; Jesus isn't just a Savior, He is Lord. Jonathan Falwell presents the days of Christ's ministry in a down to earth, powerful way that will draw your spirit and transform your soul.
The author doesn't present every move of Jesus, but the most vital aspects of His ministry and teachings. The author tackles the tough issues regarding the decision to follow Him, or not. He holds nothing back, and neither did Jesus, when addressing the hypocrites. The question in this entire book, is "Where do YOU fit in?" to Jesus' ministry. Have you walked away like the rich man . . . followed Him, only to later deny Him like Peter, or are you wholly devoted to Him, enduring until the end?
At times, I felt the stories were a little too familiar for the Christian that is further along in their faith walk, but as soon as I would think that, Falwell blind sided me with powerful insight and caused me to dig deeper in my faith than I ever have. I suddenly found myself highlighting throughout the book . . . questions that I will study and ponder which had a powerful impact upon the moment that I read them. You can't study the ministry of Christ and not self examine your faith. Well, you can, but you'd be in the "hypocrite" crowd. I found this book to be most powerful in understanding the importance of Jesus' teachings. I found that the content answered the "whys" of why Jesus said and did the things He did. I found myself examining my faith and realizing that although I've come so far, I still have eternity to go. The author's warm and powerfully inviting writing style draws you in, just like Jesus.
