Overview

Jesus invited his disciples to follow Him. Yet today many Christians and churches are unintentionally following counterfeit versions of the Savior such as the American Jesus, the Emergent Jesus, or the Mr. Rogers Jesus. Not surprisingly, most look a lot more like us than Jesus.

In Like Jesus, author Jamie Snyder exposes the counterfeit versions of Jesus while taking readers on the three-stage journey of Imitation, Identification, and Intimacy. Because the only way to become like Jesus is to discover what Jesus is really like.

What People are Saying About This

Gene Appel


“If you think you know who Jesus is, quite possibly you are about to have your mind stretched, presuppositions exploded, and heart expanded with this challenging, compelling, and life-giving book from Jamie Snyder.”
Gene Appel, senior pastor of Eastside Christian Church, Eastside.com

Kyle Idleman


“You will find this book to be practical, enjoyable, and helpful. Living like Jesus has to be the rally cry for all Christians everywhere, and this book will help all of us do that by identifying the ways we miss on out the real Jesus and by helping us understand why the real thing is so much better than anything we could make up on our own.”
Kyle Idleman, teaching pastor of Southeast Christian Church

Dave Stone


“It’s important for us as Christians to make certain we are not only following Jesus faithfully, but that the Jesus we are following is the One we find in Scripture. Jamie’s book will help us see Him clearly and follow Him closely as we live out His commission to make disciples.”
Dave Stone, pastor of Southeast Christian Church
