The Gospel is good news about ourselves, about our dignity as sons and daughters of God. We become more aware of our dignity and worth the more consciously we live by the Gospel.
In this book Fr Jim McManus will lead you into new ways of living the word of God. While you ponder what God says to you about yourself yon will begin to take Gods word more personally to yourself; you will see how living this way influences the way you see yourself and how you can form your own self-image in and through Gods word; you will become aware of the healing power of Gods word in your own life, as old wounds begin to surface and be healed.
Finally, you will develop the habit of cultivating a time of stillness when you can enter into yourself and be alone with the God who has made his home with you.
