One of the enduring legacies of the Revised Common Lectionary is its ability to draw different parts of scripture together to form a coherent narrative, drawing congregations from around the world into the life-changing message of faith in Jesus Christ. Each element of the lectionary brings its own point of view into this message, giving us insights into its origins, the impact on its original hearers, as well as its relevance for our lives today. In the gospel message, we see the drama of Jesus' life and ministry and are challenged to join in it.
Eyes of Faith journeys through the gospel texts for the first third of the Pentecost season. Cartwright guides us through these seemingly familiar passages of scripture, illuminating them for today's generation. Looking at the words and events of Jesus' life through new eyes, Cartwright explains how we can apply that new vision to our daily Christian walk.
