Reviews

There are few contemporary writers that I would trust to give you a true picture of Jesus as much as Joe Girzone. And the true Jesus is the one you cannot help but love—and be loved by.—Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., founder, Center for Action and Contemplation

Stories of Jesus provides a portrait of Our Lord in a day-by-day reflection format, based on the Gospel accounts of his life and teachings. Through these reflections, Girzone introduces Jesus and his adult ministry—from his baptism by John the Baptist through his public life and work, to his death and resurrection—pausing along the way to focus on the important people and events of Jesus’s world.

Girzone invites the reader to “enter into the mind and heart of Jesus, and subtly develop an intimacy with him that may form and deepen one’s personal relationship with the Savior.” Each day opens with a passage from one of the Gospels, followed by an imaginative retelling of the story found in the scriptural text, and a brief prayer at the end. The forty-day format allows readers to use this book for Lent, or at other times of year to provide a “retreat with Jesus.”

This creative approach to the life of Jesus will inspire a sense of God’s Son as someone who is a constant companion as we walk though our own lives, one who understands, guides, and loves us with deep affection.
