The Day I Met Jesus by Frank Viola
The first story, Diary of a Woman Caught in Adultery, was so moving, seeing her as a mother in an abusive marriage with a child, a man who claims to be in love with her, says all the right words, makes all the right moves, be around at the right time. Being caught in the act of adultery, brought before the court to be judged and punished, that is when she MET JESUS.
The next was A Diary of a prostitute who loved too much, a woman who had dreams of a home, husband and children. One night changed that. After gathering a few things she left her home and went to another village. Then something wonderful happened, she MET JESUS.
The third was a Diary of a Desperate Samaritan Woman.
The fourth a Diary of a Woman with a Flow of Blood.
And the fifth a Diary of the Woman Whom Jesus Loved.
These stories are gripping and heart felt. In addition to the stories there is scripture to go along with it as well as a commentary and how it applies today. This is a book you will want to read over and over. Do you remember THE DAY YOU MET JESUS?
I received a complimentary copy from Baker Books for this review.
