Review:
In this attractive publication, subtitled 32 Bible Studies on the Person and Work of Jesus, Anne Le Tissier looks at names and titles of Jesus. These are arranged alphabetically from our Advocate with the Father to the Word of God. The title itself makes a great statement! As Jackie Harris (editor of Woman Alive) says in the foreword, "studying the names and descriptions of Jesus is not a new idea" but it certainly is a profitable exercise. As we are informed on the back cover, "the material includes extended reflection on the theme, questions for response, prayers and suggestions for further Bible reading". To get most benefit from the book, it would be good to keep a Bible handy and look up these scriptures. Although written primarily for women, most of what is said is of general interest. Sometimes the name for Jesus under consideration leads to a similar name for us, e.g. he is the Light of the world and we are to be the light of the world, and he is the Living stone and we are living stones. Some of the chapters are particularly apt at certain times of the year e.g. the Prince of peace at Christmas and the Lamb of God at Easter. Some chapters struck a chord while others got me thinking.
