Revered Author to Speak on New Book Chronicling Year-long Journey
Ed Dobson at Christ Church of Oak Brook, Wednesday, October 28, 2009; 7 p.m.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., October 7, 2009 – Ed Dobson, highly touted author and pastor, will be the featured speaker at Christ Church of Oak Brook on Wednesday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. This free event is part of his national speaking tour launching his book, The Year of Living Like Jesus (Zondervan).
Chronicling his year-long journey of living like Jesus, Dobson’s writing and speaking hold back little, resulting in a platform that is frank and honest. Dobson spent his year living, eating and praying as Jesus did, observing the Sabbath, attending Jewish festivals and reading the Gospels repeatedly. Dobson was a former pastor of a large church in Grand Rapids, Mich. More information about his book can be found at www.livingjesusly.com
“With dignity and humor, the author addresses his personal struggle with ALS, seeking to model a prayerful response to his degenerative illness on Jesus’ approach to suffering and healing. Dobson’s strong faith, open mind, humility (“I’m a confused individual!”) and compassion infuse this offering from a self-proclaimed follower of Jesus.” – Publishers Weekly
Dobson’s book will be available for purchase at the event. Media interviews with Ed and review copies of the book are available upon request.
