Over 2 billion people on planet Earth call Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior, so it's only appropriate that Sr. Kathleen Glavich would focus on the Son of God for her next book in the award-winning Catholic Companion Series: The Catholic Companion to Jesus is an in-depth exploration of the life, times, and legacy of Jesus of Nazareth.
Written in language that is easy to grasp for all readers, but comprehensive enough to be an academic resource, The Catholic Companion to Jesus delves into the prophets who preached of Christ's coming, the biblical and historical record of the life of Jesus, his ministry and miracles, his death and resurrection, the legacy he left to all of humanity, his role in modern life, and the second coming of the Messiah.
The Catholic Companion to Jesus is intended to be a catalyst for anyone who wishes to know Jesus better. The best and most effective way to know someone is by personal interaction, and this book offers practical ideas through which readers can open their lives to the one the prophet Isaiah foretold would be called "Emmanuel," which means "God with us."
The Catholic Companion to Jesus was recognized with Second Place for Popular Presentation of the Catholic Faith in the 2011 Catholic Press Association Book Awards.
