A fresh and moving portrait of Jesus as a model for how to live more authentic, honest and meaningful lives by fully experiencing our emotions in the love of God.
Many depictions of Jesus show him as a character who coolly and calmly floats above the grit and grime of human existence. He doesn't hurt, he doesn't fear, he doesn't laugh, and most tragically, he doesn't love very passionately. He seems not to feel at all. But a closer look at the Bible reveals something surprisingly different.
In this eye-opening spiritual study, Peter Wallace examines Jesus's actions rather than just his teachings to uncover a passionate figure who was involved, present, connected, honest and direct with others. He was one who was "deeply moved," as the writer of John's gospel put it one who knew and embodied the emotions he felt and expressed them in honest, clear and life-giving ways.
