Jesus was not in a hurry.
He had only three years of public ministry-three years to heal andteach and change the world-but the Bible never tells us he was rushing throughthem.
We are the ones who rush through them. Catching the gist of thisparable. Smiling at the punch line in that dialogue. We can race through theGospels in hours, fully briefed on Christ's life, but hardly changed.
Until we sit down with Mike Nappa's God in Slow Motion. Nappa hasn't carved up the Gospels for quickreview or sliced them into tiny pieces for academic study. He has taken tenimportant moments from the life of Christ and reveled in them, chewing on theirwords, relating them to life, comparing them with modern culture, allowing theSpirit to work, and letting Christ change him.
The result is a rich, personal, and biblical narrative about Jesus andhow His purposes unfold, then and now. See how God is sneaky about his glory.How he presents evidence for belief. How he can be comforting and terrifying atonce. This is the "good news" in all its many-splendored wonder: the life ofChrist, frame by frame.
And itis worth every minute because it will change you too.
