52 Weeks with Jesus

Author:  James Merritt

First Publication:  December 2014

Publisher:  Harvest House Publishers

Source:  Net Galley

The sub-title tells you everything about this book:  "Fall in love with the One who changed everything".  That alone got me interested in reading it.  It brought back memories of the first time I read Philip Yancey's classic book called "The Jesus I Never Knew".  Even though we might be focused on Jesus everyday of our lives, it is always good to take a fresh, in depth look at various aspects of our savior.

Merritt takes us back to the basics of Jesus.  His meditations are reflections not only on who Jesus is but also how he impacted the author's life and ministry.  Take the upcoming year and spend it getting back in touch with what is the most important relationship a person can have.  

I read the book in a short period of time but plan on re-reading it in depth during 2015.  It will be a book that I return to again in the future.

Highly recommended.
