This is a modern spiritual classic offering the reader an in-depth study of Jesus Christ as He lived and spoke in the Gospels.
Sheed employs wide learning, profound spiritual insight, and a lucid style to bring the reader to a deep personal encounter with the living Lord.
This modern spiritual classic by Frank Sheed, the renowned author, publisher and lecturer, is brought back into print for the benefit of new generations of readers to develop a deeper, more profound knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Sheed's concern with the Gospels is to come to know Christ as he actually lived among us, interacted with all the various people he encountered from his infancy to his passion and death--the God-man who was like us in all things except sin.
Sheed has tried especially to see Our Lord in his effect upon others--seeing how they saw him, trying to see why they saw him so.
In his writing there is much about Mary and Joseph in their task of bringing up a baby who was literally adorable; about John the Baptist; about Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalen; about Nicodemus; about people we meet only for a moment, like the man born blind and the owners of the drowned swine; and why the Pharisees, not only the worst of them, but some of the best, would not accept Christ.
