OVERVIEW

In an acronym of the book’s title, Williams illustrates how readers can “reflect” the work of Jesus by learning how to ReasonEmoteFlipLoveElevateCreate, and Transform. Each chapter focuses on one of these attributes, digging deeper into how Jesus displayed and lived them. Williams cites many historical figures who “reflected” Jesus, using both inspirational quotations and scripture passages to provide a guide for readers to become more like the Lord. REFLECT explains what it means to worship in everyday life by displaying attributes of Christ. Being Christ-like isn’t just a key to heaven; it is a choice that makes life on earth more meaningful, enjoyable, and fulfilling.

Williams has an approachable, conversational tone that speaks to the reader as a fellow seeker of Christ. While the writing is aimed at adults, REFLECT could easily be read and applied by anyone 15 or older. Likewise, the information Williams presents is pertinent and of value to both new converts and more seasoned Christians.
