Son of Man, Savior, Light of the World, the Good Shepherd, King of Kings, the Alpha and the Omega. These are just some of the titles used for Jesus in Scripture. Timmerman elaborates on the meaning and significance of 40 different names while moving from penitence to celebration. 144 pages, softcover. Liguori.
We do not have video or photographic records of Jesus' life, nor do we have a definitive biography - only glimpses offered in the gospels. Even though Christ remains one of the most frequently written about figures in all of history, it is impossible for us to understand the mystery of his life. As we approach the Lenten season, author John Timmerman invites readers to walk upon ground that God has provided for coming to know his Son.
John Timmerman, Ph.D., professor of English at Calvin College, has published over twenty books. He has four grown children and lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his wife, Patricia.
