Encounters with Jesus
New Testament stories in a contemporary setting: As children and adults, we often wonder what it would be like to have a little alone time with the flesh-and-blood Jesus of the Bible -- just like the ones we read about in His Word. Seeing the power of a good story to communicate spiritual truth, Martin Manser has taken 52 biblical accounts of people from all walks of life encountering Jesus and updated them to contemporary culture.
Let your imagination run a little wild in considering what it would be to have a private dinner with Jesus, or being a high-powered corporate manager with the power to do just about anything but heal your young daughter.
Enrich your own relationship with Jesus by envisioning the potential of meeting him for coffee, on your favorite walk, or even stuck in traffic and about to explode.
Walking with God
Promises and Prayers for the Bible for Each Day of the Year, Compiled by Martin Manser and Mike Beaumont: Following in the footsteps of the Dictionary of Bible Themes, Walking with God presents 365 Prayers and Promises from the Bible developed to cover a wide range of biblical themes.
In the authors' words, "Our aim is quite simple: to help you meet with God! He is the God of the promises. He is the God who inspires our praying. He is the One we can turn to in every situation in life: when we are puzzled, when we find it difficult to carry on, when we need guidance and help, and when we are just simply grateful. Each day’s reading begins with an opening verse from the Bible which we then consider in the main body of the text, closing with a final Bible verse. Sometimes other Bible extracts are also quoted, and every book in the Bible is drawn from over the year. We suggest that if possible you find a quiet place where you can let go of the busyness of life for a few moments and quieten your spirit to be still, to listen and to talk to God, as you think over and pray about what is in the day’s reading."
