Kissing the Leper is about getting our eyes repaired from religious and cultural prejudice so that we can see Jesus in others, especially those that our world discards as "the least." The author has compiled the voices and testimonies of historical and contemporary practitioners to develop a devotional theology of encounter. Specifically, he challenges us to meet and welcome Christ in human form from society's margins to the banqueting table of God.

About the Author:

Brad Jersak is a teacher at Fresh Wind Christian Fellowship in Abbotford, BC Canada. This faith community has four pillars (the disabled, children, prodigals and the poor) that continue to patiently teach us the basics of God's kingdom. This book marks the journey so far.

Review:

Brad Jersak's book is a gathering of field notes on Jesus-sightings among the disabled, the children, the prodigals, and the poor. He has a practiced and discerning eye and ear for bringing Jesus to notice among the least of these among whom Jesus is to be fed and welcomed and clothed and cared for and visited. This is first-hand witness, a freshly articulated documentary, on Jesus' story of the sheep and the goats (Matt. 25) with an emphasis on the sheep who served Jesus when they didn't know they were serving him. --Eugene H. Peterson

The Lord has put a pen in Brad's hand that has become a sword. In obedience to God, he is tearing holes in the old theology of exclusion, helping us to see Christ with new eyes. Some of us have been blinded to who God really is, but with new eyes, we'll embrace the outcasts that the Father is calling back home. The church will begin to let people know who Jesus truly is and take up its call to invite everyone to the Feat of God. Brad is one who has been called to repair cracks in our Christian foundations, and to rattle the church where it needs to be rattled. --Steve Nolte - Samuel's Mantle
