Recovering the Lost Art of Serving

Jesus Christ—the supreme Son of God—stands in stark contrast with the age of Self in which we live. The Creator of all became the Suffering Servant; the immortal God came to Earth "to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Knowing and following Jesus Christ means learning to serve as he served: truly loving God and those around us; denying the personal needs and desires for others' benefit. Rescued by God from darkness and brought into the Kingdom of His beloved Son, we are now to imitate the perfect Servant in relationship to one another.

In this encouraging book, Ken Fleming shares portraits of servanthood from the Old and New Testaments. The pierced ear of the voluntary Hebrew bond slave—the offered body of Messiah—the songs of God's Servant—the humble Savior who waited on His quarrelsome disciples—divinely chosen leaders who deliberately ranked others ahead of themselves—these and other Biblical pictures reveal the very heart of Christian commitment.

Much more than a call to service, here is a celebration of the freedom found only in slavery of Jesus Christ!
