Through an accumulation of circumstances, God led the author, Bonnie Brooks, to trek through the Gospel of Luke, breaking up fallow ground, shovel in hand, relishing the views, amazing vistas, and journaling phrases.
Born out of an encounter with the Almighty, A Grandmother’s Journal is written for the purpose of passing on a spiritual legacy to the next generation. The Journal chronicles a daily spiritual expedition into the earthly life of Jesus as viewed through the eyes of the beloved physician, Luke. Together with Brooks, stroll the dusty roads of Israel, feel the breeze and splashes of water as you sail on the Sea of Galilee in a first-century boat while encountering a storm, celebrate miracles Jesus performed no one imagined possible, and kneel at the cross on Golgotha as the sky darkens and the ground quakes. Come alone or better yet, invite others to share the journey with you.
A Grandmother’s Journal explores the deeper layers of Luke’s Gospel, the longest Gospel of the Bible and the most comprehensive of the three other Gospels. As Brooks portrays various scenes in her entries, you are urged to recall people, events, and spiritual markers from your own story, your legacy, in order to pass them onto the next generation. From her heart to yours!
