Lovingly written by Sr Kathleen Glavich SND
This accessible and interesting book covering the life, times, and legacy of Jesus of Nazareth is hard to put down. Sr. Kathleen Glavich organizes this book in bite-sized chunks and packs it full of fascinating facts. The sidebars throughout the book are populated with "quick quotes," "fyi's," "trivial tidbits," "Holy Land sites," and more. The main text takes a comprehensive, engaging approach to understanding Christ and the historical context in which he lived.
While this book is perfect for seekers, RCIA programs, or confirmation candidates, it is really a wonderful resource for any Christian. Written in language that is easy to grasp for all readers, but comprehensive enough to be an academic resource, The Catholic Companion to Jesus delves into the prophets who preached of Christ's coming, the biblical and historical record of the life of Jesus, his ministry and miracles, his death and resurrection, the legacy he left to all of humanity, his role in modern life, and the second coming of the Messiah. Part of the award-winning Catholic Companion Series, this book is intended to be a catalyst for anyone who wishes to know Jesus better. The best and most effective way to know someone is by personal interaction, and this book offers practical ideas through which readers can open their lives to the one the prophet Isaiah foretold would be called "Emmanuel," which means "God with us."
