We do not have video or photographic records of Jesus' life, nor do we have a definitive biography--only glimpses offered in the gospels. Even though Christ remains one of the most frequently written about figures in all of history, it is impossible for us to understand the mystery of his life. As we approach the Lenten season, author John Timmerman invites readers to walk upon ground that God has provided for coming to know his Son.
In this book, meditations for every day of Lent examine several Biblical names and titles given to Jesus that help reveal him in images we can comprehend and that give insight into the meaning of the cross and the resurrection. Each day contains a creative explanation of one name or title for Jesus, followed by quotes from Scripture and a prayer. All who seek to follow the Lord more closely will appreciate these reflections.
