About this product
- DescriptionWritten by a popular evangelical Bishop and Christian communicator. Compelling portraits of Gospel characters who saw and responded to Jesus, with a special emphasis throughout on the role and example of Mary. Encourages us to reflect on how we see Jesus, how he sees us, and how to see the world as he sees it. A great book for Lent - or for any other time of the year! 'Come and see.' That is Jesus' invitation [in John 1.39], courteous and confident, welcoming but t overpowering, full of grace and truth. It is the gospel in three words. The two disciples, Andrew was one of them, came and saw. They stayed with Jesus for a day and they liked what they saw. Andrew then went searching for his brother, Simon, and told him, 'We have found the Messiah'. Andrew took Simon to Jesus who (says John) 'looked at him'...'This dynamic of seeing Jesus and being seen by him was transformative ...They were never the same again. They became Jesus' disciples, people who spent time with him, getting to kw him better and learning to see the world differently, as Jesus sees it. Those are three dimensions of seeing that run through this book: seeing Jesus, being seen by him and seeing things the way Jesus sees them.'
