Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Dear Reader,

Christians believe that Jesus can truly change our lives. At the same time we cannot love someone we don't know. I have written this book to help you on your journey to know Jesus better, from the inside. These 32 short meditations aim to grant you a window on Jesus' heart, so you can have a better idea of what he felt, experienced, and lived every day of his life.

Sometimes we have a romanticized idea of Jesus, and some images of him -- with languid smiles and liquid brown eyes -- make him look more like a Latin American soap opera star than the Savior of the world! We need to meet the real Jesus. His heart was merciful, compassionate and sensitive, but also rugged, resolute and realistic. He is truly a model for each one of us.

These short essays are all based directly on God's Word. They are meant to guide you in your journey to know Jesus better, to love him more deeply, and to imitate him more perfectly in your own day-to-day life. I pray that the Holy Spirit will assist you at every moment in this wonderful adventure.

I have loved writing this book, since it has given me a chance to think and pray about all the things I love about Jesus Christ, all the things that attract me to him and make me want to be a better disciple. It is a joy for me to share all of this with you. I hope that it helps you as much as it has helped me.

God bless you on your journey!

Fr Thomas D. Williams, LC

This was an unsuspected and happy gift. It reignites the childhood memories of our family's devotion to the Sacred Heart and the badge we wore to Mass on the first Fridays of the month. When I read the first few pages I knew it was a keeper. It will be part of my daily prayer time. I want each of the men in my "Challenge Group" to experience the richness of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I don't expect to find any on the used list so I will share my find and encourage them to get their own copy.

This book was wonderful. It really stressed how to approach Jesus and not be scared or ashamed. There are great meditations and processes that are easy to remember and do, that bring you closer to Jesus. It said it was a way to holiness but one anyone could do and it definitely delivers that promise. It is a good book for those just starting their journey but, it also has something to say for those well along the road. I really enjoyed it! One of the exercises it recommends I have incorporated into my daily devotions and I'm on my way reading the 5 books that "A Heart Like His" is based on. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

It is such a Wonderful way to start each day. I absolutely Love it. I wish that I had gotten it Long before. It gives so much to think about and
it starts the day off in such a Great Way!! I highly recommend this Meditation Book. For me, it seems to put things in such a good perspective.
I can start the day off on a right footing and it gives me food for thought for the entire day. I get up early, when, it is quiet and peaceful
and can totally focus on each and every day. It will bring Jesus right into your heart and show you how to obtain a heart like his. Each day
has a new reading approx. 2-3 pages long. I can't say enough for the gratitude of this book. If anyone wants a Perfect way to start their day
off, snatch up this book. I promise you will not regret it. I purchased this New Book from Amazon.

This book is very inspirational and a great way to start the day. It is not a "how to" book on the Sacred Heart of Jesus - I use it as a morning devotional. Each day is a separate chapter, each being about 4-5 pages...just long enough to really get your mind into it, and not too long that you cannot read it in the morning, and the content is deep enough. It has a nice ribbon to mark the page too. Well worth the price.

I read this book faithfully each day during the month of the Sacred Heart.
Each day provided excellent food for spiritual food, drawing me closer to the Heart
of Christ. I highly recommend this book and will be giving it to friends
and family that they too may know and love Christ better!
