This beautiful set of meditations illuminates the many facets of Jesus' nature and offers a deeper understanding of His wisdom and his compassion for humanity. InThe Wisdom of His Compassion, bestselling author Joseph Girzone reflects on the character and mind of Jesus in more than forty 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 readers turn away from thoughts of retribution or punishment, and will inspire them to embrace God's message of help and healing.
