Are we truly living as disciples of God, or have we focused so much on ourselves that we miss those who are truly in need? Many of us, as Christians, believe that we are living as God's chosen people, destined for eternal life. However, there are many out there who do not have the same advantages as we do, and they often blend into the background of our daily lives.
Tend and Feed asks us to take another look at some famous Biblical stories, but this time to approach it from a different angle, as a disciple might. Jesus told his disciples to, "Tend and feed my sheep" (John 21:17), referring to God's people. We are all God's creation, no matter what walk of life we may follow. Tend and Feed reminds us to look for those that we can help every day, as the disciples would.
This book is a useful tool for sermons and teaching classes, as it retells Bible stories from the perspective of a first-century bystander. This alternate viewpoint makes for an enlightening lesson that sticks with the listeners, and the rest of the book is full of theological interpretations of various passages, simplified for the uneducated and scholars alike.
