Linda Lysakowski’s See This Christ is a wonderful sequel to her earlier book,The Face of Jesus. Through each of the reflections, I found myself seeing, and even more importantly encountering, Jesus in new and even surprising ways. I hope you will find it helpful as I did, not only for your reflection, but for your prayer.

I love that Linda starts See This Christ with a chapter called “The Laughing Christ” because it reminds me of so many times that Linda and I, having worked together for years and years, have cracked each other up even when talking about weighty spiritual things. Looking back, I have no doubt that Christ was right there with us, cracking up, too. And this is just one facet of Christ so masterfully revealed by my friend in this remarkable book.

Very Sweet and earnest! Touches on truths often lost in the complicated Christian religion.
The book is based on a poem written by the author more than four decades ago:
See This Christ
See this Christ who is laughing, and dancing with the children in the streets.
See this Christ who is teaching, and longing for all people to be free.
See this Christ who is angry at the way we have denied our Creator’s love.
See this Christ who is touching, healing broken bodies, broken souls.
See this Christ who kneels before you washing feet of sinful people.
See this Christ who hangs here bleeding, weeping, dying for your sins.
See this Christ in all His glory, risen now triumphantly.
See this Christ who loves you, and wants you to be with Him every day.
Yes, he wants you to be with Him in all ways.
