Review: 52 Weeks With Jesus by:James Merritt

52 Weeks with Jesus
About the Book:
Jesus Christ is the most influential human to ever walk the earth. We’ve heard and seen so many depictions of Him that we think we know Him better than we actually do. If we took the time to really look at Him, we might be surprised at what we’d find.

In 52 Weeks with Jesus, author and pastor James Merritt leads you on a transformational journey as he shares what he’s learned over a lifetime of studying Jesus’ life and ministry. As you join Dr. Merritt on this journey, you will come to know and encounter Jesus in new and surprising ways and be inspired anew to embrace His invitation, “Come, follow Me.”

Filled with practical applications and surprising truths, this book will help you more ably answer that ancient question that’s as timely today as when it was first posed: “Who do you say that I am?”

About the Author:

My Review:
 Learning more about our Savior should be a process that we constantly reevaluate and keep learning from. We can learn so much from His short time with us here on earth. He did and still does continue to touch lives. Being like Him should be our goal. One way to learn more about Him is to spend more time with Him and a great way to do that is through 52 Weeks With Jesus.

 In this book the author shows us closer and more intimate way to discover our Savior. He takes you on weekly trips to get there and he definitely delivers. 52 Weeks With Jesus is more than just an ordinary devotional, it is a teaching tool and a more thorough Bible study. Each chapter has weekly Scripture readings as well as 5 different lesson points along with a weekly prayer and a weekly question. It is complete , thorough, and short quick lessons that will definitely help you reach new heights in your walk with Christ.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Harvest House.
