When I heard the title “Next Door Savior” I thought about how Jesus can be/is so close to us that we can touch him at times, like we can often go and find him anytime we want to (to seek a friendship with). I kind of felt that the topics/subtopics were discussed in a way to reach people to connect with them in today’s times, and maybe not so much in a way that the times of the day were actually like in Jesus’ days on earth. That is probably good for people who cannot or do not want to make a connection to what the original times of Jesus were like. I liked that most of the Scriptures for the topics/subtopics focused on the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, which helped me connect better to the topics being discussed.
I didn’t notice the discussion guide until I had finished reading all the chapters and the conclusion. It is listed on the contents page, although I missed it. I do not think I would have had time to read this book and work on the discussion guide questions but if I did have the time I would have liked to have seen the questions right after each chapter, since I didn’t catch that there was a discussion guide until later. Other readers might prefer for the discussion questions to stay right where they are, in the back of the book.
My rating of Next Door Savior= 4 out of 5 stars
