A pastor’s heart is revealed in By His Wounds: Meditations on the Passion.
Tom Kingery, a retired United Methodist pastor and the author of several books that have helped Christians ignite their faith, explores the story of Christ’s suffering, death, and burial in this inspiring work.
The author examines what it means that our Savior died for our sins, graciously taking our punishment on Himself. With a scholar’s imagination, he also reveals the character of the people around Jesus. He considers questions such as:
How can we follow the example of Christ in our daily life?
How can we be soldiers of the cross?
What does it mean to “keep awake and pray?”
When do we need our faith the most?
With various meditations, readers are asked to put themselves in the garden of Gethsemane and wonder. How did Jesus feel? Moreover, what did Pilate think as he faced his dilemma, and what could it have been like to watch Jesus die?
Deepen your faith, become a better Christian, and get answers to important questions with these meditations.
