Synopsis

In THE WISDOM OF HIS COMPASSION, bestselling author Joseph Girzone reflects on the character and mind of Jesus through a series of meditations. Each meditation is based on an episode related in the Gospel and focuses on a particular aspect of Jesus’ life and its significance to contemporary Christians. Some of the meditations bring to life Jesus’ humor, others his penetrating insights into human frailties. Together they create a portrait of a warm, compassionate divinity who relates to each person as an individual. As he recounts and interprets the lessons of the Gospel, Girzone shows that compassion for our fellow human beings is the most profound expression of God’s love and wisdom. His thoughtful, incisive meditations will help listeners turn away from thoughts of retribution or punishment, and will inspire them to embrace God’s message of help and healing.
