Evangelical pastor Ed Dobson talks about his experience taking a year living like Jesus and obeying his teachings. Dobson's year long experience takes him into bars, leads him to pick up hitchhikers, and as he deals with the ongoing threat to his health of Lou Gerhig's disease, deepens his understanding of suffering. The experience was not quite what Dobson envisioned at the beginning.
Ed Dobson, pastor emeritus of Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, serves as an advisory editor for Christianity Today and consulting editor for Leadership. He holds an earned doctorate from the University of Virginia, was named "Pastor of the Year" by Moody Bible Institute, and is author of numerous books, including Prayers and Promises When Facing a Life-Threatening Illness.
