Jesus of Nazareth
to Our Lord Jesus Christ: Prayers and
Meditations Through the Centuries
by Fr. Benedict Groeschel
devotion to Our Lord Jesus Christ is an essential component of
authentic Christian spirituality. In recent decades skeptical
approaches to theology and Scripture have tended to diminish our
awareness of the need for personal devotion to Our Savior. This
leaves people with a feeling of emptiness and isolation.
Fr. Benedict has made this anthology of profound prayers, drawn from
all of Christian history, available to those who experience a hunger
for devotion. Beautifully illustrated with classic art, this book
will be a valuable companion for personal prayer, for times of
recollection, and even for those times of critical spiritual need.
Readers wishing to grow in their devotion to Christ and increase
their love for Him will find the prayers in this book helpful and
inspiring. Ranging from the prayers of early Church martyrs and
Fathers and including those of mystics and theologians, it provides
an introduction to the Church's vast patrimony of twenty centuries
of devotion to Jesus Christ. Fr. Groeschel adds his own insights
throughout the book.
This book, combining profound prayers with wonderful spiritual
insights and inspiring art—makes a beautiful gift for all who would
seek to know and love Our Lord Jesus better. Illustrated.
"How important it is for us to try to grow with Jesus and increase
our knowledge and love of Him. This book is meant to do exactly
that. These prayers will help you understand how Christians
throughout the ages have lifted their hearts and minds to Jesus
Christ." — Fr. Benedict Groeschel,

Behold, God's Son!
Christoph Cardinal Schönborn
Who is Jesus Christ? How can we really know Him? People have been
asking that major question for 2,000 years. The best answers are
found in the four Gospels, but how are they to be understood, and
applied to our modern lives and faith?
former student of Pope Benedict XVI and well-known as a brilliant
theologian, presents his second volume of reflections on the person
of Christ, this time as found in the Gospel of Mark. Sunday after
Sunday, Cardinal Schonborn uses the Gospel readings from Mark to
explain the beauty of the Gospel in clear and understandable words.
The Cardinal emphasizes
that each of the four Gospels is unique and has its own unmistakable
shape and approach. He says that no other Gospel writer talks in
such a human way about Jesus as Mark. Anger and sorrow, Jesus’
passionate emotional responses, are more explicitly mentioned in
Mark than in the other Gospels. But however human Jesus may appear
here, it is also Mark in particular who also strongly emphasizes his
divinity. Believing in Jesus, having faith in him, is what Mark is
all about. 230 pages, Paperback (Item #81643)

Christ." Faithful to the Bible story of the Passion and death of Jesus,
