Format: Paperback
A couple years ago I reviewed a great book by Fr. William Mills, an Orthodox priest, titled A 30 Day Retreat: A Personal Guide to Spiritual Renewal. I complimented Fr. Mills' "eye for the transcendent," which was his deft gift for spotting the divine in ordinary situations.

In his newest book, Encountering Jesus in the Gospels (Orthodox Research Institute, paperback, 119 pages), he turns that same vision to Christ himself. The book follows the style of Eric Sammons' Who Is Jesus Christ? Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew by devoting a chapter to each of Jesus' titles, including Shepherd, King, Prophet, and Rabbi. Fr. Mills unpacks each name through Biblical analysis and first-century background, providing a colorful picture of the God-made-man.

Encountering Jesus in the Gospels is a bit simpler than Sammons' book, and leans less on theology and the Church fathers, yet it's a breezy devotional ripe for personal reflection. To love Jesus more you have to know him better, and this book helps you do that.
