"I just finished reading Grow Like Jesus. I found myself smiling right from the start because I felt such a connection to the personal stories. I really enjoyed the thought-provoking Pray, Read, Listen and Act passages. I also caught myself highlighting sections of the book along the way so I can circle back and ponder them some more. A lot of learning moments and definitely nourishment for the head and heart." Denise McMahan, Founder/Publisher, CausePlanet.org
"Growing like Jesus either is or should be the primary goal of every follower of Christ. Our chief purpose in life and our chief desire, if we understand what He has done for us, is to bring God glory, and the way we do that is by learning more about Jesus in order to follow Him more closely. Grow Like Jesus provides a deep dive into a Bible verse we often read right through. Although we don’t know much about Jesus as a boy or young man, Stephen Caldwell shows there’s plenty to be gleaned from Luke 2:52, anyway. There’s more to learn about Jesus." George Schroeder, National colleges writer, USA TODAY
Grow Like Jesus has great insights about deepening our relationship with God and others. It gives very practical advice about how a person grows personally and spiritually. This study of the growth of Christ offers great perspectives and discernment that help all of us navigate to the full maturity that God has designed for us. David A English, Leadership Development, Campus Crusade

"One Christmas I asked my family who they felt would have the ‘most challenging time’ growing spiritually in the new year. They pointed at me with smiles – I think they were right. After many years of following Jesus, Grow Like Jesus offers a simple way to find pockets of my inside world where I can continue to grow. That’s very helpful." Lloyd Reeb, Primary Spokesperson for Halftime and author of From Success to Significance: when the pursuit of success is no longer enough
"This book’s focus on Jesus was well worth the review. While Scripture is filled to overflowing with godly guidelines for full life and growth on the Jesus journey, this simplification was quite refreshing. Who better than our Savior could be such a practical example?" Susan Addington, Speaker, Mentor, Mother, and Author
"If you are a brand new Christian, you have found the right book. If you have walked with Jesus for decades, you have found the right book. Whether you find yourself in the midst of running from God or you feel as close to God as you ever have, this book provides a way forward." Nick Floyd , Teaching Pastor, Cross Church, Fayetteville, Ark.
