On the Way to FAITH: Personal Encounters With Jesus in John's Gospel

Ken R Manley

Summary

When I first became a Christian I wanted to devour the Bible to learn more about this Jesus I had encountered. Now that I have been a Christian for three decades and wanting to keep growing in my faith - but am still influenced in competing directions by my surrounding culture and my personal ego and drives - I still want to encounter Jesus in fresh ways. I return to the gospels to be surprised and have my eyes opened to what really is good news - for me and for others with whom I share my journey. I reckon its time to for me to return to the intimacy and warmth of the gospel of John, and so I have been eagerly looking forward to reading On the way to FAITH.
