God works “in mysterious ways,” is a common fallback when trying to help others understand something they themselves don’t understand. However, we do not always recognize these interactions as Christ himself, but rather as just another person or random event. To help Christians better recognize Jesus in their daily lives, Hope Harle-Mould has combined sketches of Jesus with those of biblical witnesses to create an embodiment of Christ recognizable to each of  us in a contemporary way.

“This is our religious task: to learn how to walk through our life and world — our senses spiritually attuned with Christlike focus and perspective, until something hidden emerges, something more, something holy — the radiance of God’s face shining on you, giving you grace and peace.”

For individual or group study, AKA Jesus is a tool to help each of us learn to recognize God’s presence in our lives each day through the actions of strangers. These engaging sketches will help readers open their spiritual eyes to the world around them and see the wonder of God’s provision and involvement in each life.
