In the Gospels, Jesus poses many questions to the reader - questions that are probing yet gentle, and that never harass. When the meaning of these questions is explored, a gentleness and humanity is found that is both exciting and exhilarating for the reader.
These questions invite us to make the journey that links religion and faith, religious practice with compassion and love, integrating our prayer with the events of life and with questions of justice and faith.
Answers are not to be found in the pages of this book, instead a deeper meaning to Gospel questions is cultivated. If we live the questions, the answers will not be strange to us when they gradually unfold.
