Son Of God: The Life Of Jesus In You by Rick Warren, Book review

  • Paperback: 64 pages
  • Publisher: B/H Books; Csm edition (February 15, 2014)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1430035282


What would happen if you applied the lessons from events in Jesus’ life—temptation, suffering, death, resurrection—to your own? Would you come to know Him more intimately and with a greater understanding of your purpose? Would you embody more completely the mission, love, and mind of Jesus?

This DVD small group study, based on producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s major theatrical release, Son of God, features New York Times bestselling author Pastor Rick Warren as he explains how you can find your purpose in studying the life of Jesus. Member Book includes a small group experience for six sessions, applicable Scripture, and a group discussion guide. Also includes leader helps. (6 sessions)

My Thoughts:

Based in part on The Bible: The Epic Miniseries with Roma Downey, this small group study SON OF GOD: The Life of Jesus In You is a quick and easy tool for Sunday school teachers and Youth group Pastors to introduce the following subjects included in the six sessions of the book:

- Jesus' Baptism and your Baptism
- Jesus' Temptation and your Temptation
- Jesus' Suffering and Your Suffering
- Jesus' Death and Your Death
- Jesus' Resurrection and Your Resurrection
- Jesus' Ministry and Your Ministry.

*Note: The Bible study kit includes a DVD and a study guide featuring lessons, exercises, Scriptures passages, life application, leader helps and much more. However as I have not seen either the movie or acquired the entire kit, the purpose of this review is only to highlight the study guide.

The Son of God Study book in itself provided good ideas on how to start a small in home group complete with resources, Prayer and Praise report, calendar and even a roster. Sessions* includes key verse, video lesson, Discovery Questions and even space for notes.

On the whole, a practical introduction to a deeper communication between God and yourself, and a good small group study as well as a good tool for homeschooling!

4 Stars.

    (Victor, we are still laughing at the trousers story!)

    1. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement Noelle. I'll post more funny stories from time to time. I find they bring in new readers who hopefully will also read my Christian stories/books.

      God bless you and your family.


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
