"As a spiritual director, it becomes evident in the spiritual life, that it is not sufficient to talk "about" Jesus, but rather, to come to know Him personally in dialogue with Him. In this lucid and accessible work, Allan Wright opens a path to that conversation by allowing us to meet Jesus intimately as He asks the key questions about life and faith to each one of us directly.
This book is such a help to deepening this intimate bond with Our Lord!"
Msgr Joseph R Chapel, STD
Spiritual Director, Casa Santa Maria, Pontifical North American College
"I've seen many books that answer people's questions about Jesus, but this is the first one I've seen that asks people to answer Jesus' questions about them. Whether you're a life-long believer or a just curious about Christianity, this book may help you meet Jesus as if for the first time."
Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Most Rev. Arthur J. Serratelli, S.T.D, S.S.L., D.D.Bishop of Paterson, Chairman of Committee on Divine Worship of the USCCB , Chairman of the International Committee on English in the Liturgy
"An excellent book written clearly and succinctly by a skilled and inspiring teacher and author. The book centers around twenty-five simple and profound questions that Jesus posed in the Gospels. The book is an invitation to examine and critically evaluate life's big questions. It is a good exercise for everybody to consider in their spiritual journey and discipleship. Tolle Lege - Take Up and Read!"
Dr. Ines Murzaku Professor of Ecclesiastical History and Founding Chair of the Department of Catholic Studies at Seton Hall University
"Whether teaching Parables of Jesus, or leading retreats or workshops, Allan Wright powerfully engages audiences with the Word of God, launching and accompanying them on a spiritual journey of self-reflection and soul-searching. Allan's gift for inspirational teaching also shines through in his latest book where he invites us to hear Christ gently questioning us and beckoning us to draw nearer to Divine love. Unpacking these questions, Allan gives us the tools to respond authentically to Christ's invitation, as we embark not only a journey, but a Divine transformative adventure."
Dianne M. Traflet, J.D., S.T.D., Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Administration and Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology, Immaculate Conception Seminary

At the end of each chapter/question there are "pray", "contemplate", and "wonder" sections with questions to help you go deeper. To encourage personalization and understanding. I loved these questions for journaling.
This book is great for personal or group study. I'm hoping to suggest this for my women's group.
I received this book free from NetGalley and Ave Maria Press for my honest opinion.
Even when taken at face-value in our modern English translations, Jesus’ questions provide much food for thought and spiritual development. Wright utilizes his knowledge of the original biblical languages and understanding of the culture in Jesus’ time to provide valuable insights into these questions. In many cases, the already powerful questions gain an even deeper meaning when one considers this additional information.
For example, the story of the Good Samaritan is one of the most familiar parables in the Bible. Wright provides the back story that we may not be aware of. He examines the motivation of the lawyer who asks, “Who is my neighbor?” He explains the terrain of that particular road from Jerusalem to Jericho (it’s relevant) and the reason the priest and the Levite would have been traveling it as well as why they would not have wanted to touch the injured man (maybe we should not judge them so hastily. Given the circumstances, would be any different?) He also discusses the robber victim’s foolishness in traveling alone on this treacherous road – a fact that would not have escaped the original audience’s notice.
25 Life-Changing Questions from the Gospels is both fascinating and spiritually enriching. Jesus asked these questions of his first-century listeners, but he also asks them of us. Wright’s reflections can help us to form our own answers to these questions and change our behavior accordingly. Each chapter includes questions for either personal or group use. This would be a wonderful choice for any Catholic Bible study or book group.
