Are you at home in the company of Jesus?
Through over 100 meditational passages, respected theologian, R. C. Sproul helps us walk with Jesus as a friend. Learning to live with Jesus at the center of our world is the secret to a meaningful life. Jesus is the pre-eminent character in history—even time is divided by his birth date. He encouraged people from all walks of life to spend quality time with him. We cannot afford to ignore his gentle, but firm, invitation to become his friend.
Luke was a 1st Century doctor and historian. He realized the importance of the carpenter whose family came from an obscure Nazarene village, yet whose life's mission was foretold for centuries before his birth. Luke was concerned to record all that he knew about him and painstakingly collected information from eyewitness, giving an accurate account of the most important life in history.
With an incisive mind and an ability to shine a clear light on his subject, Sproul divides Luke's account of the life of Jesus into devotional sections that help us to understand his impact and re-evaluate our response to it. Be warned and refreshed by the story of the Lord of the Universe who is friend of all who walk with him.
