Product Description

The Gospels are filled with stories, parables, commandments, and dramatic incidents that trace Jesus' life and recount his teachings. A close reading of the Gospels reveals, however, that they are also filled with questions. John Dear points out in this remarkable book that like any great teacher and rabbi, "Jesus has a question for everyone he meets, for every occasion, for every experience, for every potential disciple." Dear uses these questions as a starting point, an invitation to readers to discover the lessons they contain by searching their own hearts and minds for answers.

Publisher's Description

This illuminating examination of the Gospels reveals how the questions Jesus asks of his followers lead the way to a deeper understanding of the meaning of life and the mystery of God.

The Gospels are filled with stories, parables, miracles, commandments, and dramatic incidents that trace Jesus’ life and recount his teachings. A close reading of the Gospels reveals, however, that they are also filled with questions. As John Dear points out in this remarkable book, Jesus, like any great teacher and rabbi, “has a question for everyone he meets, for every occasion, for every experience, for every potential disciple.” Dear uses these questions as a starting point, an invitation to readers to discover the lessons they contain by searching their own hearts and minds for answers.

Throughout The Questions of Jesus, Dear interweaves insights from ethical and religious teachers ranging from Buddha to Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr. Using recent events as powerful and poignant examples, he shows why a renewed commitment to Jesus’ message of nonviolence, compassion, justice, and peace is essential to healing a world torn by violence and war.

    John Steward
    Jesus asks 307 questions in the four gospels. John Dear reflects on 124 of them - considering briefly their context and meaning. He then applies the truth that he sees emerging in the text to current life. John Dear's insights are sensitive, clear and thoughtful; his application is uncompromising and often uncomfortable. The questions of Jesus show how he was interested in the person, and not afraid to challenge their actions, assumptions or inclinations. This book challenges me deeply. Each question is covered in about two pages, so the book can be read in shortsittings.
