Learning from the Master - Book Launch, by Laura J. Davis
Are you sold out for Christ? Would you do anything He asks you to do? Many people believe they are living fully surrendered lives to God, but when the worries of this world start to crowd in, they cry out in frustration and anger instead of bowing before Him and saying, “Thy will be done.”
But what does Jesus say about this? How did He lay down His life so willingly? By following the lives of Jesus, His mother Mary, and the apostles, we can discover what true surrender is all about.
Based on the award-winning novel Come to Me, Learning from the Master follows the life of Christ, from birth to resurrection. Each chapter in the study will take you through the book Come to Me, giving you the opportunity to know Jesus in an intimate setting as He interacts with His family and friends. From there, the study takes the reader through various topics such as: faith, family, trust, doubt, and even wilderness experiences. In addition, other topics of discussion include the significance of the Bethlehem star, the last supper and of course the resurrection.
With over twenty topics of discussion, Learning from the Master: Living a Surrendered Life, is ideal for your ladies bible study group, or for private study. Each topic leaves the reader with a clear understanding of how to live a fully surrendered life.
“Embracing the fullness of life means accepting the truth to find that life. Laura has captured the essence of pursing and getting hold of that truth from our Master, Jesus Christ. The beauty in this study guide, is that Laura guides us along a rich journey of discovery through the tender and loving eyes of Jesus’ mother, Mary. Learning from the Master is rich with compassion; but chock full of challenges and wisdom. Be prepared to be transformed.”
– Heidi McLaughlin, Author of Sand to Pearls
“Learning from the Master will guide those who read it into a deeper understanding of what it means to live a surrendered life.”
– Rick Larson, Creator of The Star of Bethlehem DVD
