Format: Paperback
The subtitle of Discover Christ: Developing a Personal Relationship with Jesus (Our Sunday Visitor, paperback, 120 pages) might grate against some Catholic ears. But it shouldn't. As Pope Benedict XVI reminds, a personal relationship with Jesus is at the very heart of Christianity:

"Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction."

The preparation document for the upcoming Synod on the New Evangelization puts it even more simply:

"The goal of the transmission of faith is the realization of a personal encounter with Jesus Christ."

With that end in mind, Bert Ghezzi and David Nodar have written a superb guide. The chapters in Discover Christ are arranged in question and answer format, and are designed to walk non-believers into a relationship with Jesus. It tackles some of the biggest questions many non-Christians have like:

- What is the meaning of life?
- Why does Jesus matter?
- Why do I need a savior?
- Who is the Holy Spirit?

The book also covers basic elements of Christian discipleship like spiritual formation, celebrating the sacraments, participating in community, and spreading the Gospel themselves.

In short, Discover Christ is a compact guide to living the Christian life. Those strong in their faith might find it a bit simplistic, but Discover Christ is the perfect book for the new seeker or anyone wading in the shallows of faith.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Christie on July 8, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is a good introduction to the Christian faith, and to the basics of Christianity. I thought at times it was too simplistic, but for someone wanting to get a feel for who Jesus is, why He matters, and how you can have a relationship with your Creator and Savior, this book is excellent. I also think the tie between a personal relationship and the Church could have been expounded upon more fully, as Christianity is meant to be lived in communion with the Body of Christ and in submission to its leadership, strengthened by its teachings and nourished by its sacraments. This wasn't as developed for Catholics as it could have been. Overall, though, the passion the authors have for discipleship and sharing the Gospel overflows onto this book's pages, and is an inspiring reminder for Catholics.
