What would it mean if we each were to live out Jesus' teachings as found in Matthew 18? The result would be a change in our lives and our communities as we lived in the caring way that Jesus demonstrated. In Caring Like Jesus, Daniel Ulrich and Janice Fairchild invite readers to discover what it means to be disciples through this innovative, new exploration of the teachings of Matthew 18. Learn to care with the love of Christ while exploring themes of humility, welcome, self-discipline, compassionate searching, direct communication, shared authority, and unlimited forgiveness. The focus throughout is on how we can become the agents of caring and reconciliation that God calls us to be, especially in conflict. Each chapter looks at a portion of the gospel message and offers careful interpretation of the biblical text. Current stories of people who practice this kind of "Jesuscare," and suggestions for putting these values to work round out each chapter. Perfect for individual, small group, or congregational study, Caring Like Jesus will challenge you to more faithful discipleship and help transform your church into the caring community of believers that Jesus desires. Daniel Ulrich teaches New Testament at Bethany Theological Seminary. Janice Fairchild is pastor of the Springfield (Oregon) Church of the Brethren. The Church of the Brethren is a Christian tradition that has tried to live in the spirit of Matthew 18.
