The Ministry of Christ: 1000 Days is a look at the last three years of Jesus Christ's life. The author, Jonathan Falwell, takes what Jesus did during that time and applies it to today. Chapters include such topics as When You Want Something More; The Paradoxical Happiness of Less; Smooth Sailing versus Calmed Storm; and The Loudest Sermon Ever.
At the end of each chapter there are Questions for Individual Reflection or Small Group Discussion, and at the end of the book has a Bible Study Guide for leaders with reminders, tips for studying, what to memorize or meditate after each chapter, and what to discuss. The 100 Main Events in Jesus' Life lists by scripture people whom Jesus met, about the disciples, Jesus' healings and miracles, and death.
I guess I thought the book would more of a history or story book, and from the description initially read from the publisher I was hoping to actually read more about the actual 1000 days rather than just go through a bible study guide. Perhaps you could skip Falwell's interpretation and study the bible itself to learn about Jesus' life.
