In What Did Jesus Ask?, 65 of today's leading spiritual writers, thinkers, and artists offer modern meditations on the questions that Jesus posed in the Bible to teach his followers how to think like a Christian and consider their personal faith.
As a teacher, Jesus Christ put many of his lessons in the form of questions. The gospels record more than 300 of them. Some are rhetorical, needing no answer, but most were real questions posed to real people. Many of Jesus' questions are familiar to readers today, yet the context and the potential interpretations of such phrases will offer enlightenment to many. Organized by Biblical verse, these 65 enigmatic questions include:
"You of little faith, why did you doubt?" - Matthew 14:31
"Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear?" - Mark 8:18
And now, What Did Jesus Ask? poses those questions to many of today's prominent religious figures, scholars and thought leaders to contemplate and interpret. Contributors include bestselling singer/songwriters Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, Christian leaders Barbara Taylor and Cardinal Wuerl of Washington, and bestselling authors James Martin and Sarah Young, and many more. Including a foreword by Nancy Gibbs, bestselling author and managing editor of TIME magazine, What Did Jesus Ask? is a thought-provoking volume for both readers interested in religious thought and understanding the teachings of Jesus better.
