Thanks to Pauline Books and Media, today I’m giving away THREE copies of Monsignor Brian Bransfield’s new book, Meeting Jesus Christ: Meditations on the World. Msgr. Bransfield is the Associate General Secretary of the USCCB and a Scripture expert. This book, full of insightful reflections on knowing Jesus Christ, also features a Foreword by Cardinal Francis George.
Meeting Jesus Christ: Meditations on the Word
by Msgr. J. Brian Bransfield
Pauline Books and Media, 234 pages, paperback
Released on September 1, 2013
Step into meditations on mysteries from the life of Jesus. In this spiritual companion, you are invited to personally encounter Jesus Christ through twenty-one Scriptural meditations which unlock unique perspectives on the mysteries of his life. Revealing how the Word of God is a light for all of us, best-selling author Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield shows you how to develop a more meaningful relationship with Christ through prayer. Whether you are seeking to revive or deepen your prayer life, this book will bring you into fruitful conversation with Jesus.
Each chapter takes up a different Gospel account from pages of the New Testament and draws you into meditation. Highlighting the new in the familiar, this guide equips you with a refreshing way to deepen your prayer life through looking for the unexpected in Scripture. Extending beyond sentimental, self-styled meditations that only focus on the self, this book focuses on Jesus in a way that opens up the mystery and beauty to your everyday life.
“This is not a book to be read; it’s to be experienced. Msgr. Bransfield opens up the Scriptures in a way that brings Jesus to life with a tender brilliance that makes it difficult to close the book and end such a profound encounter.” – Susan Brinkmann, OCDS, author and staff journalist for Women of Grace.com
