Some people don't seem to relate well to Jesus or merely admire him from afar. Booram tours a mother lode of Christian art, then adds stories, meditations, and imaginative prayer. Chapter-by-chapter she invites us to gaze into Jesus' face as one of welcome, respect, indignation, compassion, sorrow, and longing. Full-color insert. 112 pages, softcover. Abingdon.
For many who identify themselves as Christians, Jesus has never become experientially personal or real. Countless others who have faithfully followed Christ confess to a spiritual dryness and lack of joy. These individuals are weary and unmoved by the plethora of information about Jesus. What they long for is an experience with Jesus.
Picturing the Face of Jesus is an invitation to experience Christ more deeply. Through a rich palette of experiential mediaart contemplation, gospel story-telling, and imaginative prayerthe reader is invited to picture the face of Jesus, his expressive, one-of-a-kind, human face. As a result, Jesus will become a real person with whom they candidly relate, instead of a hero they merely admire. Through this encounter, their own hearts will be transformed as they begin to reflect the face of Christ to others.
