Description

We human beings are a complex bunch. We often get only glimpses of heaven before smashing back into the muddle of our mixed emotions. And yet we find, again and again, that the things we seek comfort in disappoint. How can we escape from this trap into the freedom Jesus wants for us?

Tom Shaw's sermons on the second half of Mark's gospel draw readers in to a closer look at the way Jesus led his followers through the battle for body and soul. In this down to earth exploration of human nature and our longing for a deeper walk with God, Tom invites us to really understand the circumstances, motivations and behaviour of the disciples and all who came into contact with Jesus in these biblical accounts.

Why did Peter make that strange statement after he'd been with Jesus on the mountain top and seen the transfiguration with his own eyes? What was really going on in the Pharisees' hearts when they set their traps for the Son of God? What did Jesus think was so special about Mary pouring oil over his feet? And what is Jesus saying through all these stories to you, today?

In The Comfort Delusion, Liz Jennings has moulded Tom's talks into themed studies, suitable for personal reading or group study. At the end of each section, there are opportunities to journal and think things through more deeply, either privately or as part of a small group discussion. With inspiring challenges to encourage your spiritual growth and further reading to explore, The Comfort Delusion shines a light on Jesus' character of challenge, loving care and overwhelming grace.
