To Know Christ Jesus

            I read this book for Lent.  It was a nearly perfect Lent book.  It even had 45  chapters so you could read one per day and be finished by Holy Week.

            I loved it.  It had so much history and context – it really brought Christ to life for me.  The reader spends the entire book immersing themselves in the Biblical scenes.  Mr. Sheed gives a lot of information on everything surrounding the various episodes and, in many, many cases, had me looking at things I’ve read a hundred times with completely new eyes.  He even took a chapter to make the reader rethink being too hard on the Pharisees.

            It was well written with lots of joy and love.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking to get to know Jesus a little better.
