In six sections, Donders follows the Gospel of Christ from its beginnings through Pentecost. In one way, we can never become completely comfortable with Jesus, for he summons us to leave our settled routines and to embrace life's insecurities, armed with the assurance that he accompanies us on our journey. But to the extent that we are not open to the challenge of Jesus's calling, we will always be strangers to our own true selves.
"Jesus the Stranger is a positive and joyful affirmation of Christ. Spiritual reading should always be this bright, crisp and attractive. It's a pleasure to recommend it." --Our Sunday Visitor
"A beautiful stimulating meditation .... After reading Jesus the Stranger, one definite reaction will be the delight and enthusiasm with which the reader will pass the book on to others." --Sisters Today
Joseph G. Donders teaches at Washington Theological Union and is author of John Paul II: The Encyclicals in Everyday Language and Praying and Preaching the Sunday Gospel.
