  1. I am eagerly waiting for this book.I just joined the youth ministry yorba linda and i wanted to know more about the journey of our loving Jesus.I want to teach and learn all His teachings and His messages.


  2. I have longed for this day. A pity you cannot get me a review copy before I have to send off the assembled material to the printer for the next issue of the New Diaconal Review or can you?

  3. I am so thrilled the second volume is coming out in time for Lent-what an incredible journey to Easter it will be. The first book is amazing-new insights into Jesus on every page, and often an image or new thought will stay with me for weeks afterwards. I think it might take me longer than 6 weeks to read if it’s as dense in scholarship as the first. Plenty to savour . . .
