What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"This newest approach to the words of our Lord fills both my heart and my mind with joy. The approach employed here is brilliant, and the organization of Christ's sayings and teachings is accessible, clear, and pleasing in every way. In sum, we should all rejoice in the publications of The Red Letters."
Phyllis Tickle, Founding Editor of the Religion Department, Publishers Weekly; Author of The Words of Jesus

"This splendid little book will build up your faith and direct you to its source in Jesus as both Lord and Savior. It's a wonderful companion for a daily walk with the One whose words stir our souls, capture our hearts, and engage our minds."
Quentin J. Schultze, Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair in Faith and Communication, Calvin College; Co-author of The Suburban Church: Practical Advice for Authentic Ministry

"Like looking at a masterpiece with a magnifying glass, Beals takes those interested in the life of Christ 'up close and personal.' Shorn of the larger set-up text and personal exchanges of others, Jesus speaks for himself as he has always done . . . with breathtaking clarity. Perfect for personal reflection, serious study, or casual reading, The Red Letters underlines the witness of one Roman jailer, 'This was indeed the Son of God.'"
Steven W. Haas, Vice President, World Vision

"For a true disciple, nothing is more important than the words of the Master, and here are his words and his words alone, organized around well-defined themes. It would not be an overstatement to say that if believers read and acted on these 'red letter' words, it would cause a spiritual revolution."
Michael L. Brown, President, FIRE School of Ministry; Author of What Do Jewish People Think about Jesus?

"In reading The Red Letters I was struck again by the brevity, wit, creativity, and courage of Jesus. Jesus' words strip away all false reality and confront us with the greatest reality of all-the Person and Kingdom of his Father. Tim Beals, with this collection and arrangement of Jesus' sayings and teachings, makes it possible for us to sit quietly with Jesus and listen to, reflect on, and be transformed by his words."
John W. Frye, Pastor, Fellowship Covenant Church, Hudsonville, Michigan; Author of Jesus the Pastor: Leading Others in the Character and Power of Christ

"Tim Beals has done a masterful job of arranging the words of Jesus in The Red Letters. Don't miss this insightful and powerful study of the sayings and teachings of Christ. It will challenge your mind, bless your soul, and move your heart."
Edward E. Hindson, Assistant Chancellor, Liberty University; Co-author of The Knowing Jesus Study Bible
