Overview

A perfect meditational companion, Walking with Jesus provides eighteen fictionalized reflections by people who encountered Jesus during their lifetimes.

In Walking with Jesus the "first person" stories of anonymous lepers, centurions, innkeepers, magi, servants and soldiers serve as an excellent reminder for all of us of the life and death of Jesus.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's an old and well-worn literary tradition to tell the story of Jesus through the people who crossed his path, and this compilation of 18 fictionalized reflections maintains the standard and adds a little that is new. Here we find first-person accounts by unnamed biblical figures such as the woman caught in adultery, the Roman centurion and-in one of the book's most original and imaginative chapters-the mother of Judas. There are also chapters for familiar and named New Testament characters such as Martha, Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene and John the beloved disciple. The writing can at times be maudlin and overdone, hammering home the message when a more subtle hand would have sufficed. But Sullivan has an emotional sense for the characters, and his first-person narratives lend immediacy to the biblical figures' experiences of Jesus. (Jan.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    What a phenomenal reading

    An awesome reflection of the people who knew Jesus, not by the individuals themselves, but by the people who knew those individuals (ex. The thief's sister). Great devotional reading. Need more!
