1,000 Days by Jonathan Falwell {book review}

God walked the earth long ago when He made the earth. He again walked the earth when He came as fully human and fully man (aka Jesus Christ). For 1,000 days He walked the earth. Why? Not only to give us the gift of salvation through His death on the cross and resurrection three days later. Would that have been enough, too much even? Yes. We deserve none of it. And yet, He gives more. He came to show us how to live - more than a moral code or ethics.
 Jesus Christ came as a perfect human, perfect God to show us how we need Him in order to live like Him.
 That pretty much sums up the book. I'm not saying it wasn't a good read, because it really was. I was really hoping this book was a little more in depth than it ended up being. 1,000 Days spoke of how Christ used ordinary people, with flaws, to do His Will and do wonderful things for His Kingdom. It spoke of hypocrisy and how to avoid being like Pharisees. And the paradox of happiness from less. I like the way Falwell presented this material; nothing new that you can't get by reading your Bible, but well put so it can pertain to your life.
