February #BookOfTheMonth: Follow Me

Added about 3 years ago by Sacristy Press

As we approach Lent, our February #BookOfTheMonth is perfect material for the penitential season.

“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

The Bible is full of instructions for how we ought to behave if we want to be a follower of Jesus, but these often seem to belong to a by-gone age, far removed from our busy twenty-first century lives. Follow Me: Living the Sayings of Jesus helps us uncover how Jesus’ words are still relevant, and distils the essence of the Gospel message for today, providing practical steps that all of us can take to live the sayings of Jesus.

Using true stories to bring us closer to scripture, Ian Black draws connections between what Jesus said and how we live today in all its messiness and complexity. Based on Jesus’ words “follow me”, he reflects on acts of loving service, the commandment to love, prayer, money, forgiveness, self-sacrifice, mission, and the Eucharist (Communion).

Each chapter ends with a series of questions for private or group reflection and a prayer.
