9780891123613: A Month With Jesus: 31 Days with a Surprising Savior

These simple but profound reflections on stories from the Gospels invite Christians to look afresh at the One they follow daily.

Why another book on Jesus? Surely if there is one Bible character we know, it is Jesus. But maybe the same old thing of ''Jesus, Jesus, Jesus'' in our churches has blinded us to who he really was and really is. Perhaps our own walk with him is not what it should be because we feel too comfortable with him--or at least of our picture of him.

A MONTH WITH JESUS is an invitation to spend a month with the biblical Jesus, the One who surprised his contemporaries. By looking at him through their eyes, maybe we too can be surprised. Surprised enough to shake us out of our old habits. Surprised enough to understand him as we never have before. Surprised enough to follow. Surprised enough that this familiar story--the greatest story of all--is no longer ''the same old thing.''
