About Philip Watson

I have grown up and live in New Zealand - Aotearoa (the Land of the Long White Cloud), currently residing in Auckland, our largest city with a population around 2 million people. Around half of all New Zealanders live in Auckland. It is here that I can find the time to reflect on my faith and write.

It is the Bible and an intelligent and informed explanation of it's contents, that is the wind in the sails of the books I write. I am unashamedly evangelical or charismatic in my faith and my writings.

After finishing Theological College in New Zealand, I traveled to the Middle East to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, to glean a glimpse of the life he would have lived on this earth and soak in the ambiance of the world of Jesus and the glory of God's creations. This was for me a discovery of God and how important my Christian faith is for me, my family and my life.

I enjoy telling stories in my books, informing and educating you, the reader, on our journeys. The richness of the history of the biblical lands and the truth of the Bible has moved me to reach out in Discipleship Books Ministry, an ordinary person helping other ordinary people find their faith in Jesus Christ, our savior.

These books I have put on Amazon are the culmination of 20 years of research, discovery and worship in the Christian Church. In many ways, these books map my journey as a Christian coming to grips with the meaning of being a true follower of Christ, and how to be the best disciple of Jesus I can be.

I pray that these insights I reveal in my books can create the same positive enlightenment in you as they have in me.

Jesus The Ministry

This book focusses on the nature of the ministry of Jesus. By doing so, it helps define our ministry as Christians.

So many factors defined Jesus ministry. His love for people. His love of God. God's love for him. God's love of all people. The power of the Holy Spirit. A desire to set people free. A desire that people find life. A desire that people understand the truth.

Jesus style of ministry was so different to what people expected. The religious leaders of his time avoided sinners, tax collectors, Samaritans, lepers and the majority of the common people.

Jesus by contrast, mixed with all these people and loved anyone who listened to his words of life. Even his enemies.

The religious teachers of Jesus' time, defined religion as obedience to the law. All 1200 of them.

By contrast, what defined the religion of Jesus was grace and a few simple laws and principles. “Who is Jesus?” was a question many of that time asked.

In this book there is not one answer, but many images. Lover or children. Lover of people. Lover of God. A teacher. A healer. A prophet. A Priest and a King.
