Friend's of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury

Monday, July 6, 2015

In our everyday lives, friends are the people whom we spend the most time with, go through struggles with at times, and who know us best. Each of Jesus’ friends—Peter, John, Matthew, Judas, Mary Magdalene, and Lazarus—traveled with Jesus and were part of His daily ministry, and each has a compelling story to tell. There were some who would question or doubt Him…and one would even betray Him. Kingsbury brings these fascinating personalities to life in ways that will not only help bring you closer to the truths found in Scripture, but also to Christ.

By combining valuable, instructive Bible study with compelling, insightful character sketches of Jesus’ companions, Kingsbury provides you with a deeper understanding of the scriptural teachings featuring these fascinating people. Emotionally powerful, thought-provoking, and soulful, The Friends of Jesus will help you to appreciate the Bible and understand how it applies to your relationships with the most important people in your life.

Karen Kingsbury is a #1 New York Times Bestselling novelist with more than 25 million books in print. She is America’s favorite inspirational storyteller as her last dozen novels have hit top spot on national bestseller lists. Several of Karen’s books are in production as theatrical and Hallmark original movies. 
My Thoughts:
This is the second book in Karen's Life-Changing Bible study series. I loved the way she portrayed each of the disciples and friends that traveled with Jesus. They were a mess and I saw parts of me in each of them. Mainly Peter, I have a lot in common with him. Being able to recognize the traits within ourselves that were evident in Jesus' friends confirms once again that He is the friend to the friendless, Father to the orphans, and Husband to the widows. He is all to all of us. This was a quick read, I couldn't put it down once I started. This is a perfect summer read!
