Item Description...
Overview
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 media-art contemplation, gospel story-telling, and imaginative prayer-the 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Turning to Jesus' face... and His heart  Jun 16, 2009
What I love most about this book is how it encourages you to go beyond Jesus' physical face or his expressions straight to His heart. Beth Booram paints in a fresh way how the human Jesus expresses His love and His longing that flows from the heart of God. I was particularly stuck by her writing on sorrow and brokenness. Beth is a master at pinpointing the facades we create to hide our sorrow, encouraging us to face with honesty our own vulnerability. All who love this book must also read Beth's Wide Open Spaces with God. The Wide Open Spaces of God: A Journey With God Through the Landscapes of Life
Thank you for your creativity, ingenuity and inspiration, Beth!
 
Really wonderful read!  Jun 2, 2009
This book is a wonderful read! I also really enjoy Beth's other book "The Wide Open Spaces of God". She's an amazing author!!!
 
A New Kind of Book!  May 19, 2009
I have never encountered a book that combines art, contemplation,scripture and interesting discussion. I have enjoyed experiencing Jesus more deeply through Beth Booram's insightful guidance. I am halfway through the book and have decided to spend a full week with each chapter and painting, basking in the beauty of the artwork and Jesus Himself. This would be a great book to study with a group of people. I highly recommend it!!!
 
Encountering Jesus  May 9, 2009
Beth has brought a fresh new way to become acquainted with Jesus. She presents six different portrayals of Jesus by artists from 1609 to 2006. Her art menditations on each painting ask thoughtful questions which help the reader move into a deeper way of being with God's son.
I have always had trouble 'coming to Jesus' and my prayers through the six decades of my life have been addressed to God. However, when I was actively in an art meditation using the picture on the cover of the book, I was finally able to build 'a small bridge' connecting my heart with Jesus. The questions that Beth provided were very helpful to provide a focus for my time with this picture. I was so grateful for this 'tiny touch' that left a deep imprint in my heart. J. Reed, Spiritual Director
