From the Back Cover
Don't get stuck at asking "What would Jesus do?" Be equipped to do it.
Chicagoland pastor Robby Dawkins hadn't moved past that question either--until he discovered that the miraculous things Jesus did during His lifetime are not just history. They're today's reality. When he started living the way Jesus did, he started living life, as he says, straight out of a superhero movie.
So can you. In this dangerous book, you'll learn simple, practical ways to take hold of your God-given "power tools"--prophetic ministry, healing, ministering the presence of God and deliverance from demonic power. And through amazing but true stories from the front lines of ministry, you'll see what happens when ordinary Christians harness God's superpower to bring His Kingdom to earth.
It's time to beat the sickness, suffering and despair of the impossible. Time to embrace a powerful faith. It's time to do what Jesus did.
"Do What Jesus Did is a great read for anyone wanting some motivation to step out and share God's heart with others. Not only are you encouraged with some pretty cool stories, but Robby also shares some of the encounters that didn't always go as planned. It's a motivator for anyone who wants to see God move in the lives of the people around them. We may not see the results every time, but here's to trusting that as we step out, we will see our Daddy's love shine through." --Revival Magazine
"People who put their faith in Jesus can do the same works he did: heal the sick and injured, multiply food, cast out evil spirits, and break through to the hardest hearts with the love of God. Pastor Robby Dawkins tells how gang members in Aurora, Illinois, receive Christ's love until this highly violent city becomes murder-free. Prostitutes, witches, atheists, and murderers experience God's love and miraculous healing through ordinary people and gladly give their lives to Christ.
Here's an example that Robby shares in the book:
"Without really having any idea of what I was about to say next, I told the woman, 'I hear God saying he's about to completely heal your father and give him a brand-new heart . . .'
. . . When the woman called back again crying hours later, my heart sank. . . . I could just make out her words through the sobs, and I wasn't sure that I had understood. 'Your dad, ' I said, 'he's . . . dead?'
She said, 'No--he's doing great!' Nobody was more surprised to hear that than me."
It's not a fairy tale, and it's not limited to pastor Dawkins' ministry. It happens all over the world. But Do What Jesus Did emboldened this reviewer to proclaim and see breakthroughs for friends and strangers alike. Dawkins' book bears some resemblance to Power Evangelism and Power Healing, (both by John Wimber and Kevin Springer). Dawkins' book raises the bar with these revolutionary discoveries:
1. Even doubters can do miracles.
2. One doesn't have to hear a message from God to proclaim a needed event into happening.
3. "Pushing to failure" builds spiritual muscles like nothing else.
This book can change the lives of its readers and of all they touch. It dares them to take the plunge into God's dynamic love."-- PortlandBookReview.com

When he began speaking, he was captivating. His prayer was so direct, so powerful, so commanding. Knee, be repaired. Vertebae, be healed. I had never before witnessed anything like it.
And when he gave a prophetic wod of "pancreas", straight away people were praying for me. Some of whom knew I am diabetic, but most did not. And right away, the numbness in one of my fingers was gone.
Now, if you show me a loud American evangelist, as a reserved Englishman, I would be running in the opposite direction. But Robbys' message was so honest, direct, and powerful that I was hanging on every word. And I wanted to be right up the front of the queue to buy this book and shake him by the hand.
And having literally just finished reading it, I want to share with you all what an amazing book this is. Whether or not you have a faith, wherever you are on your faith journey, I would urge you to read it. Because the reasons for which Jesus, the disciples, and the prophets prayed so powerfully apply to us as well. God uses all of us, in the most incredible ways. We just have to be prepared to take the risk, persevere, be prepared to fail, and risk our reputations whilst on this fantastic journey.
Sure, as regards healing, we have to be wary of some bad advice that is out there. Only today there was an article on the news about some pentecostal ministers advising some of their flock with HIV to stop taking their medication.Read more ›
Your words carry such blessing, and speak so clearly to my heart. Only two weeks ago, I had the honour of Papa using two of my pals, and I in West Belfast, on a 24/7 prayer team treasure hunt. We went in such of Garden Gnomes, and we found the most beautiful girl, His treasure. She had been sitting across from us, on the sidewalk, and we began to walk on by but God tugged on our hearts and said, 'Stop for the One, in front of you, this is my treasure.'
This girl called Karen had been planning to kill herself, but had asked God praying the night before for a sign that He still loved her, and then we showed up, to tell her He did. She shared her story with us, and God poured his love out on her.
And, we had the opportunity to pray for her and her life, it was incredible. What was even more amazing, was how Papa gave a clue we did not know until we were sharing testimonies to a girl who had never treasure hunted before. She saw a girl, who was planning to commit suicide. And, God lead us to his treasure. The one in front of us.
Thank you for writing your book, and being an inspiration. Not only is this book incredibly easy to read, it is written in real English, and not Christianese which is I can tell you a welcome blessing. It is filled with 'take away knowledge' and easy ways to practically apply what is read. This is a book I have already started recommending to people.
Thank you Robby.
