With exquisite detail and gentle passion, Ken Gire depicts crucial moments in the life of Christ. In Moments with the Savior, we are there with Jesus, entering into his heart and the hearts of those around him as he travels the countryside of Galilee and Judea. Gire lets us experience the emotions, smell the road dust, feel the sweat, hear the voices, and enter moment by moment into the life of the Master as portrayed in these evocative devotionals.
This marvelous volume combines new writings with four of Gire's well-known devotional masterpieces. Gire invites readers to share
-- Intimate Moments with the Savior that focus on how people closest to Jesus responded to his love and attention
-- Incredible Moments with the Savior that examine the profound meaning of the miracles of Jesus
-- Instructive Moments with the Savior that discuss the parables of Jesus and how they changed the lives of their original hearers
-- Intense Moments with the Savior that look at the human feelings Christ had in the midst of temptation, trouble, and doubt -- from the Pharisees' challenges to facing his own death and suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane
The complete writings from the original four books are woven together in chronological order, along with twenty new devotional readings on the life, teachings, and ministry of Jesus Christ. A Scripture portion and prayer are included with each reading. The result is two months of rich, deeply moving daily reflections on the servanthood, deity, and humanity of Jesus. A classic in the making, this beautiful volume is one of the finest, most complete meditations on the life of Christ in print.
