Meeting Jesus : Human Responses to a Yearning God
"Meeting Jesus" explores the nature of encounter with God through reflecting on four key parables at the heart of Luke's Gospel - the lost sheep, the lost coin, the prodigal son, and the dishonest steward. Being particularly rich in psychological content, these parables give a detailed picture of human response to God, while also portraying God's own yearning for his lost people. The fresh insights the authors offer are illustrated and considered from both a theological and a contemporary psychological perspective.
