The Year of Living like Jesus by Ed Dobson

I don't think I would have read The Year of Living Like Jesus unless it was given to me.

Ed Dobson decided to attempt to live like Jesus for an entire year. He would grow a beard, eat kosher, and anything else a Jewish person alive during Jesus' time would do.

This book is a type of journal where you read Dobson's entries. Later on he gives the daily entries up for more book-like segments on his reflections and experiences.

Dobson drinks beer and discusses God with atheists and shares his faith with people from all walks of life.

You'll discover just how difficult following Jesus to the letter can be.

I think the biggest to-do about this experience was the fact that he voted for President Obama. He notes how much flak he took when that was made public.

And, in his defense, Ed Dobson loves to go against the grain.
