John Bloor brings Luke's story of Jesus alive, showing its relevance for today, and how it has spoken into his own life. And if you think you do know the Gospel story well, you should still read this book. You may discover things you had not noticed.
Bishop Graham Cray, Archbishops' Missioner
To our 21st century minds, it can seem impossible to know God. If we don't believe God exists, then any thought of knowing him and going to heaven after we die is nonsense. If we do believe there is a God who created the universe and the world we live in, how could such a God possibly want a relationship with specks living for a short time on a minor planet in a minor solar system?
The Impossible uses Luke's gospel to follow one man who made this impossibility possible. We are invited to join Jesus as he journeys to his destiny at Jerusalem where the impossible was achieved. On the way we meet fellow-travellers with the same questions and confusions that we have. Through this journey and the events in Jerusalem, we can realise how this man made it possible for us to have a relationship with God that continues into eternity. If you want to understand today how the impossible was made possible then this is the book to read.
‘The secret to life lies in discovering where we fit into God's story. By sharing honestly and humbly, John helps us to do just this, offering us the opportunity to delve deeper into scripture and dip into the divine.'
‘Those trying to find God in a complex, materialistic world could do no better than to begin with this excellent work by John. He has made possible what seems impossible - and that is to understand something about the God who created our universe.'
‘Easy going and thoughtful, this book will help you go deeper into Luke's gospel in a way that applies to your everyday life. It helps the good news come alive.'
