9780867166736: What Jesus Said and Why It Matters Now

The purpose of this book is to help you personalize the stories in the Gospels. We personalize a Gospel story by entering into its conflict, experiencing its energy and emotion, and letting it absorb us. When we connect with the story at this experiential level, it reveals something of our deepest longings and our ultimate hopes.... Personalizing the stories of the Gospels invites us into the Jesus experience, calls us to a deeper understanding of our identity in God and urges us to live out that identity in our everyday lives. from the Introduction

Flowing out of author Timothy D. Fallon s lifelong spiritual journey, What Jesus Said and Why It Matters Now incorporates insights gained from his experiences in church ministry, the business world and family life as husband, stepparent and grandparent.

Fallon uses a wide range of contemporary examples everything from MAD Magazine and Washington Post articles to Saving Private Ryan and Steve Martin s Shopgirl film to help readers experience how God touches us in our own lives.

With seven Gospel accounts, What Jesus Said and Why It Matters Now demonstrates a method readers can apply to make each story a vital part of their lives. Fallon says three fundamental questions lie at the heart of personalizing the Gospels: What s the experience of this story? How does this story touch me? How does this story call me to live?
