Intimate Moments with the Savior is a devotional tapestry, richly woven from the threads of Scripture, meditation, and prayer. It captures the intimate moments Jesus spent with individuals and how those moments forever changed their lives. In reliving those life-changing moments, you will walk where Jesus walked. You will travel with him in the sweltering heat to a Samaritan well. You will stand with him on the windswept shores of Galilee. You will ascend with him up the fateful step of Calvary. At those places, you will see the people Jesus saw. Your heart will melt for Peter, ache for the hemorrhaging woman, and break for Judas. You will also see what these people saw in Jesus. You will see the kindness in his face, the forgiveness in his eyes, the power in his hand. With these people, you will reach out to touch the hem of his garment. With them you will weep. With them you will kneel. And moment by intimate moment, you, too, will be changed. Intimate Moments with the Savior is the first book in Ken Gire's award-winning Moments with the Savior series. The second book, Incredible Moments with the Savior, examines the profound meaning of the miracles of Jesus. Instructive Moments with the Savior, the third book is a series of meditations on the parables of Jesus and how they changed the lives of the original hearers. The fourth and last book, Intense Moments with the Savior, takes you inside the mind of Jesus himself.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book as gifts for others because I loved mine so much. I received mine years ago and I love to read the first story every Christmas. The book contains different events in the Bible, and each story is divided into 3 sections: Scripture, Meditation, Prayer. The best part of the book is the Meditation, which the name is misleading---it's actually an event in the Bible described so well by the author who tells how he envisioned the event happening. So there are creative liberties taken in writing it--it's not meant to be an accurate account of the event because that's the Scripture's job. The writing is so good you feel like you get to know the people of the Bible better. This books creates intimate moments for you to have with those long ago.
