About-

What if the people I know were to be transformed by an encounter with the cosmos? The foreign woman who argues with the doctor, the homeless man on the street corner, the corrupt politician, the fisherman risking his life to make a living. What if I met up with them in a decade and found that each had experienced a life transformation after meeting the God-Man, Jesus, who touched them in the deepest core of their being? And what if one of Jesus' companions was to meet them and listen to their story, the story of their life and their encounter with the one who brought transformation?
This book collects the imagined stories of men and women of whom we know very little, only the bare bones of their encounters. It is a book for the foreign woman, the homeless man, the politician, and the fisherman--any of us who want to deeply encounter a God who meets us as a real person. The stories touch us because they are refashioned into the contextual thinking of our time and our culture--and yet they reflect the reality of another time, a time when God walked among us--in our streets, and our neighborhood, and into our homes.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In this beautifully written book, Irene Alexander has made the ancient Scriptures live for those seeking to hear a wisdom that comes from deep wells. Here the gospel narratives, in a contemporary voice, vibrate with a new relevance, and it's as if Jesus is once again amongst us with a message that calls us to forgiveness, healing, transformation, and joy."
--Charles Ringma, Professor emeritus, Regent College, Canada
