Item description for The Ongoing Work of Jesus: His Mission in Our Lives (Inspirational Reading for Every Catholic) by James A. Krisher...
Overview If we could talk to Jesus about his personal sense of mission and how it affects our lives, what would he say? In The Ongoing Work of Jesus: His Mission in Our Lives, James Krisher helps us explore Jesus' own mission statements found in the gospels, in which Jesus expresses his deeply felt convictions regarding his purpose on earth, that is, what he was meant to be about in his life. Some of the statements can be quite surprising. Krisher then takes these statements a step further, reflecting on what they might mean in terms of Jesus' ongoing mission in our lives and today. What are the challenges, joys, and demands entailed in being collaborators with Jesus' mission? Krisher invites readers into the mystery of faith and the richness of ways we live our Christian beliefs every day. The writing is warm and personal contrasting the lives of Jesus' disciples in his own time with stories from the lives of disciples today. This book includes insightful questions for reflection for each chapter, and a section of guided meditations suitable for individual or group prayer. The Ongoing Work of Jesus: His Mission in Our Lives is ideal for small group study and discussion, as well as for any person seeking to deepen the sense of purpose and mission in their lives.
Publishers Description In a clear, direct, and readable style, James Krisher invites readers to meditate on the facets of Jesus' mission as described in Jesus' own words. Through real life situations and stories he illustrates how people can be true disciples of Jesus in their everyday activities and encounters with each other.
