From the Publisher
. . . a valuable resource for anyone searching for wisdom as it is revealed in the Gospels. Jesus’ compassion and unconditional love and mercy are thoughtfully and spiritually presented with a sound foundation in Scriptural knowledge and a fresh perspective in the spiritual wisdom of those Scriptures. This resource would be beneficial for teachers of Scripture and for personal or small group studies.
Shea focuses on the conversational patterns that communicate spiritual wisdom. In particular, he pays attention to the art of Jesus’ teaching style, how he gears what he says to the mindsets of people, and how he marshals his rhetoric in the service of breakthroughs in consciousness.
