Title: Outdoing Jesus: Seven Ways to Live Out the Promise of "Greater Than"
Publisher: Eerdmans Publishing Company
Author: Doug Pagitt

Description

Is it sacrilegious to claim that ordinary people can do greater works than Jesus?

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these” (John 14:12). 

Taking these words of Jesus seriously, Outdoing Jesus shows how the seven actions of Jesus that the Gospel of John singles out as special “signs” challenge us to live into a greater future. When Jesus asserts that his followers “will do even greater things than these,” he is calling for us to extend his miracles for the benefit of all of humanity. Only a master teacher wants students to do greater than their master!

Doug Pagitt uses the works and teachings of Jesus as lenses through which we see what the kingdom of God would look like if it were “at hand.” We see how developments in humanities, medicine, science, technology, philanthropy, structural design, and social justice are bringing about the agenda of God for the world; and how we can participate. Outdoing Jesus is not only insightful biblical theology but a robust call to dare great things in pursuit of human flourishing.
