Item description for Sacred Encounters With Jesus by G. Scott Sparrow, Morton Kelsey & Gregory Scott Sparrow...
Overview "Sacred Encounters with Jesus" is a discerning account of how Jesus heals and transforms people today just as He ministered to His disciples. Readers will enter into the miraculous experiences of a terminally ill girl who was healed by Jesus' touch and of a woman who touched Jesus as He knelt beside her and prayed. These experiences raise the possibility that only some people will readily accept: that Jesus can be experienced as directly and as personally today as when He walked the earth 2,000 years ago.
Publishers Description Sacred Encounters with Jesus is a discerning and comprehensive account of how people still experience Christ. The nature of these experiences is that Jesus heals and transforms people just as he ministered to his broken-hearted and defeated disciples. The reader will enter into the miraculous experience of the terminally ill girl who was healed by Jesus' touch after her parents had already said their final good-byes, will share the shock of a psychotherapist who turned to see Jesus walking beside her one day, and will feel the incredulous wonder of a woman who reached up and touched Jesus' hair as he knelt beside her and prayed. These experiences raise the possibility that some people wilt readily accept and others will summarily dismiss -- that Jesus can be experienced as directly and as personally today as when he walked the earth 2,000 years ago.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Encounters With Jesus?
Will the real Jesus please stand up? Apr 11, 2005
Encounters with the paranormal or supernatural are self-validating for those who experience them, but raise many questions for those of us who hear about them secondhand. This book is no exception.
First of all, in most of these encounters, the being identified as "Jesus" does not explicitly claim to be Jesus. Rather, the entity is assumed to be Jesus on the basis of his physical appearance, on the basis of statements which imply that he is Jesus or call to mind the words of Jesus, or - most often - because of the profound sense of love, peace, and acceptance which the being bestows.
"Jesus" appears in many forms, or even without a form: sometimes his presence is merely felt and not seen; sometimes a voice is heard, but nothing is seen; sometimes a voice emerges from a brilliant light; sometimes a vague human shape is seen in the midst of a brilliant light; and sometimes Jesus appears as an apparently flesh-and-blood human being.
Skeptics will note that a large percentage of these encounters occur in dreams, raising the possibility of a subjective origin. Nonetheless, a number of the experiences do occur in ordinary reality, and their life-changing nature suggest that they are more than momentary psychological abberations.
Traditional Christians, while open to the reality of the supernatural, may suspect that some of these encounters with "Jesus" are in fact experiences of angelic or even demonic entities. We encounter multiple Jesuses, some of which are bizarre or disturbing, e.g., a Jesus accompanied by a flying saucer; a Jesus who claims to be identical to the Buddha; a Jesus who morphs into an East Indian sage; a Jesus who counsels a woman to divorce her husband; and - strangest of all - a bald-headed, beardless Jesus, wearing a pin-striped business suit as he speaks to a crowd in a circus tent.
So this is indeed a Jesus with New Age overtones, and that fact will make him more - or less - attractive depending on the religious beliefs of the reader. For me, the book has value as a chronicle of the paranormal, not necessarily as a conveyor of messages from the real Jesus.

This book is an interesting and thoughtful compilation of modern day Jesus encounters. I found it to be inspirational.
