  • A passionate and poignant devotional approach to understanding Jesus
  • Ideal for personal meditation, group discussion, or as a gift

In researching Jesus's emotional life, Episcopal priest and Day1 producer and host Peter Wallace came across a scanned copy of Robert Law's book, The Emotions of Jesus, in the Internet Archive. He found it to be a brilliant jewel of a book that flashes light on the facets of Jesus's emotions and personality, brightening our understanding and appreciation of who Jesus was, how he lived, what it must have been like to be with him, and follow him. Law's centuryold text has been carefully revised for a contemporary audience, without diminishing its beauty. Wallace addresses obscure wording and gender bias and provides background information and notes in order to ensure a fresh appreciation by modern readers. The result is a new approach to understanding Jesus, the wholly human one, who embodied a range of emotions as we do, and who serves as a model for living bold, authentic, and fervent lives today as followers of the way of love. Questions for meditation or discussion are included with each chapter.

Audience: Clergy, fans of Day1, study groups
