Grow Like Jesus is the first book to delve into Luke 2:52, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."--a verse that spans the gap between Jesus the child and Jesus at the start of his ministry--and unpack its lessons in ways that are simple to understand but deep enough to drive meaningful changes in a person's life.
While we don't know if Jesus performed miracles while living in Egypt, if he caught fireflies at night as a kid or if he went to sleepovers with his friends, we can be sure he wasn't just hanging around eating lentils and pomegranates. Based on Luke 2:52, we know he was growing in four specific areas: wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with people. In other words, he grew intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially.
As it turns out (and it shouldn't come as a surprise) continual growth in these four areas will prepare us for success in life as followers of Christ--the type of success that allows us to know God and make him known; in other words, real success. The practical, applicable and accessible knowledge of Grow Like Jesus is perfect for anyone new to a faith in Christ or looking to breathe new life into their existing faith.
