Fr. Mitch Pacwa has a gift for opening up the Scriptures, and he offers Catholics such a gift in this book of meditations on the beginnings of Jesus' public ministry. Based on Ignatian principles, the thirty-nine mediations are meant to help readers use their imagination to enter into the Gospel scene and experience the presence of Jesus. From Jesus' baptism in the Jordan to his temptation in the desert and the wedding feast at Cana, Fr. Pacwa provides fascinating background information about the text, such as the geography of Palestine and Jewish customs and ideas. Then he asks a series of questions that are intended to lead readers into a deeper examination of their own life and mission in the world today.
