Item Description...
This stunningly fresh and original volume explores the person and work of Jesus as seen through the eyes of a wide variety of people who encountered him face-to-face during his lifetime. These encounters are rich in the range of characters they present to us - we meet the ones he beguiled, avoided, encouraged, argued with, healed, consoled, and frightened. Owens finds that Jesus' interactions with other people reveal as much about him as his teachings. This remarkable book also explores how these encounters connect with our own hopes and longings about Jesus and what he will - or won't - do in our lives.

Publishers Description

This stunningly fresh and original volume explores the person and work of Jesus as seen through the eyes of a wide variety of people who encountered him face-to-face during his lifetime. Reflecting on thirty Gospel stories, Virginia Owens suggests how certain characters--such as Mary Magdalene, the Samaritan woman, Zacchaeus, and Nicodemus--dealt with Jesus. With her retelling of each scenario we see Jesus' character take shape as the biblical personalities come to life. Indeed, Owens finds that how Jesus acts, particularly in relation to other people, reveals as much about him as his teachings.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Pearl of Great Price  Feb 16, 2000
A beautiful meditation upon the everyday details and context of first-century Palestine that adds adjectives and adverbs to the Gospels' action and dialogue. A thoughtful and thought-provoking piece that is faithful to what is written in the Scriptures, and celebrates the gift of imagination, as well. Bravo!
Finally, answers to my doubts and questions re: the Bible  Oct 19, 1999
Virginia Owens is not only a knowledgeable Bibical scholar, but an entertaining writer, as well. Not only did she adress my miriad doubts and questions about Jesus and the Bible, but she actually made sense of seemingly nonsensical parables. By explaining the sociology of the era and the reasons for the choices Jesus made, she brought understanding and enlightenment to my weary soul. Her practical and lighthearted style make this an easy and irresistible read. I wholeheartedly recommend the book, especially for those whose concept of Jesus has outgrown a childlish belief.
Excellent insights to the life and parables of Jesus.  Apr 23, 1999
This book could easily be read as a daily devotional, each chapter being short in words, but full of thought-provoking material. This book helps one push pass the stereotypical and well-known portrayals of Jesus and takes the reader to a level with Christ that far too few Christian writers have been able to accomplish.

I have read numerous books about Jesus Christ and this book brought to life once again my intrigue and passion for him. More than a historical review, each chapter looks at cultural, social, and spiritual meanings often overlooked in the Gospels. For those really Looking for Jesus, especially those who have already met him, but would like to know him, this book is a must read.
