‘The Art of the Follower’ by Dag Heward-Mills


FollowerAccording to the front cover, the purpose of the book is “Using the Lessons of Jesus to Become the Follower God Wants Us to Be”. However, only Chapter 4 entitled “What Jesus Taught About Following” is the only one with “Jesus” in the title.  The majority of the book deals with following God’s champions, such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, etc., all from the Old Testament.

He speaks in depth about his desire for a healing ministry and, in order to succeed, sought to emulate Benny Hinn.  I am not downplaying the gift of healing by any means; however, I believe that if Mr. Heward-Mills was given the gift of healing, he would not have had to emulate anyone.

No matter how insightful the author is about his topic, his writing is often confusing and makes little sense.  In a book that promises to show readers how to follow God using Jesus’ example, the author misses the mark by using heroes of the faith and excluding our primary example.  The author will make a great point and then trail off into nonsense.
