Leaders do well to consult their predecessors--to seek ancient wisdom--for help in guiding people into the future. Authentic leaders recognize that they need the insights and counsel of others. Bill Donahue shows you that Jesus is this kind of authentic leader. He is honest about the past, connects to the present and point to a future that builds on both. He understands your failures, demands your devotion, releases you strengths and rewards your obedience. His leadership is demanding and challenging, yet full of grace and led by the Spirit. He is a leader worth following. And his model of leadership is worth emulating.
The Jesus 101 Series engages both mind and heart. The sessions bring a fresh perspective on who Jesus is, how he interacted with people in Scripture and how he relates to us. The discussion questions are designed particularly to help a group to learn from each other but also provide an interesting context for individual reflection. As you discover the ways Jesus fulfills our lives, you may fall in love with him again--or for the first time.
