Seven Days with the Gospel of John : A Personal Retreat
John's gospel reads like a detective story with its intriguing questions: "What are you looking for?"; "What have I done for you?" "Do you love me?" "Do you now believe?" The numerous characters in this story are always in a relationship with Jesus. From the first person to the very last one, they slowly discover who Jesus really is. The last one to grapple with this mystery is the most famous doubter in the gospel: Thomas. During this "retreat" Fr. Donders guides us in following the developments-the ups and downs-of the discovery made by the persons who surround Jesus. He offers meditations for both morning and evening, as well as points for prayer and application. During this time we follow Jesus as he is seen by so many others: in his moments of teaching, healing, suffering, and glory. And in so doing we will be drawn into our own story, to learn not only what the life of Jesus is about, but also what our own lives are about. Seven Days with the Gospel of John provides an excellent prayer experience for individuals and groups, as well as a study guide for those who wish to delve more deeply into most sublime of all the gospel accounts.
