Overview

The woman at the well. The scholar. The tax collector. The young children. The governor. The thief on the cross. Men, women, and children who came face to face with the Lord Jesus. What was it like to see and to speak with Jesus during his days on earth? The thirteen encounters described in this book cast bright light on how Jesus treated people then—and how he relates to us today. As we watch him in action, we also learn how to interact with others around us, whether believers or unbelievers.

Editorial Reviews

J. Ligon Duncan III
This volume not only serves the interests of discipleship but gives us encouragement in and ideas for evangelism in our daily encounters with those who do not know Christ.
Carol J. Ruvolo
With warmth and keen insight, Rick Phillips introduces us to some folks who had close encounters with Jesus—and then teaches us some valuable life-lessons from their examples. Encounters with Jesus is a most useful tool for growing in grace.
