“I was reminded of the story of the big sign erected outside a church. It announced, ‘Jesus is the answer.’ Underneath it someone had written in big letters, ‘Yeah, but what is the question?’ Young people are right to be asking big questions. They want to explore what their lives and the world are about. But they don’t just want big answers to these questions. They want answers that will make a difference in their lives. They want to know how to live happily and well. So do we all. That is what faith in Jesus is about.”
From the Introduction
In A Friendly Guide to Jesus, Andrew Hamilton SJ looks for answers to questions about Jesus. Not just who was he but who is he for us today. How can faith in Jesus help us to understand what really matters? What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? How can we live happily and well as Christians? It is a guide book in the search for meaning, incorporating story and art, maps, charts, scripture guides and information boxes.
The second title in John Garratt Publishing’s Friendly Guide series, A Friendly Guide to Jesus is clear, concise and accessible, ideally suited to an introductory level readership. For students and teachers it will be an invaluable resource to supplement the Religious Education program. Similarly, parish groups, RCIA teams and candidates or anyone wanting to improve their understanding of the life and mission of Jesus, will find this text indispensable.
Throughout this book Jan Hynes’s stunning paintings of the urban landscape of contemporary Australia, as well as one of Australian wilderness, illustrate the life of Jesus in a fresh and vivid way. Her explanations of the imagery in each painting add layers of meaning to the viewer’s experience.
