I am with You Always : True Stories of Encounters with Jesus
They are ordinary people from all walks of life, all ages and different religions. Yet they share an extraordinary secret that most have been reluctant to reveal except to their closest friends and relatives: they have seen, touched, heard, or even spoken to Jesus at a pivotal moment in their lives - and come away transformed. Dr. Gregory Scott Sparrow is a psychotherapist who has been collecting stories of Christ encounters for more than five years and has traveled across America talking about his own encounters with Jesus. He has written a deeply inspiring and profoundly moving book that offers not only his own experiences of a loving, healing, personal Jesus but the vivid true-life accounts of other men, women, and children whose lives have been touched by a Jesus who is closer than we usually realize.From descriptions of dramatic near-death encounters to miraculous healings of mind and body, and from unexpected meetings on busy side streets to sacred encounters in quiet rooms, people reveal the remarkable Christ encounters that until now they have kept as personal treasures. Their reports are joyous or serene, uplifting or unsettling. But they are invariably life-changing - lifting burdens and offering hope and the power to change or bestowing a new understanding of the nature of life and faith.As Dr. Sparrow writes in his introduction to the book, "Jesus Christ occupies a uniquely important place in our spiritual, cultural, and psychological lives, regardless of what we profess to believe. As many of the recipients of these experiences have discovered, one does not have to believe any particular thing about Christ in order to find him deeply involved in our most life-changing experiences."
