Kissing the Leper is about eyes that see. Jesus once counselled us to "buy medicine for your eyes from me so that you can see, really see" (Rev. 3:18 MSG). Kissing the Leper is about getting our eyes repaired from religious and cultural prejudice so that we can see Jesus in others, especially those that our world discards as "the least".
The author has compiled the voices and testimonies of historical and contemporary practitioners to develop a devotional theology of encounter. Specifically, Brad Jersak challenges us to meet and welcome Christ in human form from society's margins to the banqueting table of God.

This is the first audiobook I have listened to in quite a while. I am very picky about the style of narration when I listen to an audiobook. In the past, I have put many audiobooks aside even though the story has interested me. I did not have this problem with Kissing the Leper.
This is the first time I have listened to a book narrated by Michael A. Smith. Although the pace felt a little slow at times, the passion with which Smith read brought life and depth to the stories in each chapter that would not have been found had I simply read quietly to myself.
