Item description for Seven Days with the Gospel of Matthew: For a Personal or Shared Retreat by Joseph G. Donders...
Overview Seven Days with the Gospel of Matthew provides for a retreat of seven days, offering suggestions for reflection and meditation. The retreat is based on the spiritual dynamics found in Matthew's gospel. On this retreat we want to know Jesus as Matthew came to know him, to see him as Matthew did. Matthew was a tax collector who focused on Jesus as the fulfillment of the promises in the Old Testament and as the savior for his own time. Each meditation on Matthew's gospel concludes with questions for reflection, as well as a suggested prayer and action response to help bring the reflection to life. Father Donder's book can also serve as a study guide for those who wish to delve more deeply into the gospel of Matthew. May your seven days with the gospel of Matthew draw you closer to Jesus. Other books in this series include: Seven Days with the Gospel of John, Seven Days with the Gospel of Mark, Seven Days with the Gospel of Luke.
Publishers Description Father Donders leads us on a seven day "retreat" in this final book in the series. As he did with the Gospels of Luke, Mark, and John, he uses morning and evening meditations and prayers that help readers focus on the gospel messages and come to know Jesus the way Matthew did.
