Jesus, the Gift of Love

Crossroad, 1996

Vanier captures the beauty, power and holiness of Jesus. But more importantly, the simplicity of his writing makes the man Jesus come alive in all his humanity, revealing his immense goodness and love for everyone he meets. This book is the story of Jesus as it is told in the four Gospels, brought together into one meditation, giving a clear portrait of Jesus as he was and as he lived, a clear vision of his message. The author writes that the Gospels are there not just to lead us to belief, the belief that he is living in us today and in the Church, but to teach us how to live and to act in our broken world today. Through Jesus the Gift of Love, Vanier offers us his gift of seeing deeply into the heart of the Gospels.
