Imagine Meeting the Savior

As we approach Easter, it’s a great time to imagine what it would have been like to walk beside
Jesus like the disciples did. They saw Him do so many amazing things, then they saw Him go to
the cross—and then rise again! Though we weren’t there to see these things happen in person,
the very real events of Jesus’ life are the great story that still impacts every part of our Christian
life. This collection of books, from paraphrases of Scripture, to devotional writings, to dramatic
novelizations, is meant to give you a fresh experience of that story and help you deepen your
relationship with your living Savior and Lord.

The Message New Testament by Eugene Peterson
This paraphrase of the New Testament in modern language is meant not to replace your Bible
translation but to offer a new way to look at familiar stories without the distraction of formal
language, or even verse divisions. Read it as the genuine and personal narrative that it is!

The Jesus Trilogy by J. Daniel Small
Written as a legacy gift to his grandchildren, this paraphrase covers the story of Jesus in three
parts: the story of Christ’s ministry (the Gospels), the spread of Jesus’ followers (Acts), and the
culmination of the Lord’s work in the future (Revelation).

Jesus, the One and Only by Beth Moore
This beautiful and tender book invites you to take an intimate look at the events of Jesus’ life
and fall deeply in love with the Son of God, the one and only Lover of your soul, like those who
walked alongside Him in Galilee.

Imagine Meeting Him by Robert Rasmussen
Is Jesus just someone you admire from a distance, never really able to grasp His nearness to you
in your everyday life? This book is sure to inspire you with the amazing reality of Christ’s active
presence and help you draw closer to Him.

The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey
Philip Yancey thought he knew Jesus—he’d been to Sunday school, and even Bible College. Yet
the Jesus he thought he knew wasn’t the ultimately satisfying Jesus he found when he let go of
his preconceived ideas and encountered the incredible God-Man revealed in the Gospels.

wisdom of this most important moment of all and come away more in awe of the Savior.
