From the author of the critically acclaimed Godstories comes a new study for those who crave a life-changing experience with God. Over the course of 10 beautifully written chapters are the stories of 11 personal encounters between Jesus and another figure in the Gospel narratives. Each one was a chance meeting, a one-time interaction that Jesus had with someone he met along the way. Author and pastor Stephen Shoemaker builds on a foundation of solid scholarship to allow the reader to meet Jesus in the life of the biblical charactersas well as to bring that encounter home to meet the living Christ in our own lives today. Great for personal study or small-group discipleship.
