The name of Christ is widely known, yet the figure of Christ is all too often unexplored, even by Christians. In Search of Christ seeks to remedy this defect by offering the reader the possibility of growing to know Jesus through his own thoughts, words, and deeds in the gospel. So, whether it is merely a human or historic interest in this ‘man for others’, or whether users want to nourish their faith, the volume offers the possibility of achieving these goals. It does so by means of reflection and prayer around the good news of Jesus. Of necessity, the process invites and evokes considerable participation from the users, accompanying them in an exciting search.
Helping people search for Christ through scriptures; it enlightens and stimulates but doesn’t usurp the thinking of the user. It is suitable for groups or individuals. It reaches out to believers, non-thinkers and folk who want to learn more about Christ as a major historical figure.
