Buechner revisits the ancient stories of the Gospels, presenting a warm-hearted introduction to different aspects of Jesus—the person, the God, the teacher, the wanderer, the man of suffering—and reminding us to seek to see Jesus afresh is to be changed and challenged every day.
“Reading this book is akin to praying with religious art, with Rev. Buechner as a reverent guide to the artist’s intent.”–Rachelle Linner, The Catholic Review Online
“[Y]et another of Mr. Buechner’s poetic musings; this time he puts a human face on the gospel events, one that mirrors our own. … Clearly he has a way with words. He makes familiar New Testament encounters refreshingly vivid, drawing the reader in so closely that we must either gaze in awe or avoid meeting Jesus’ eyes altogether.”–Dallas New Religion
