What Would Judas Do?
Understanding Faith Through the most Famous of the Faithless
In this 31-day devotional, John Perritt looks at the life of Judas – the experiences he had living with Christ, the things he would have seen and heard, and his terrible final resolve. This is a book which challenges our hearts and makes us feel uncomfortable – and leaves us with tears of praise, wondering at the amazing salvation which we have in our Christ.
“We have more in common with history’s greatest traitor than we may care to admit. But by reflecting on the failures of Judas we can better see how we can become more like Jesus.” — Joe Carter, Editor at The Gospel Coalition and Author of NIV’s Lifehacks Bible
“The contrarian in me loves this – a look at Jesus through the eyes of His betrayer. And a look at our own relationship with Jesus through exploring theirs.” — Barnabas Piper, author of The Pastor’s Kid, Help My Unbelief, and The Curious Christian
