Passionist Father Donald Senior encourages us to appreciate the beauty of Matthew's Gospel, to savor its portrait of Jesus and his disciples, and to recapture its distinctiveness. With passion and insight, Fr. Senior examines Jesus as one who reveres the old and creates the new; as a teacher who knows the compassionate heart of truth; as a healer who bears the pain of this world; as one obedient unto death, whose trust God vindicates; as one who envisions all peoples within the embrace of God; as one who remains in solidarity with his community until the end of time.
In the portrait of the disciples, Fr. Senior describes individuals who are commissioned yet flawed; who "understand" God's will; who are people of "little" faith; who are a community of reconciliation and learning; who are empowered by Jesus and sent to the ends of the world.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
On a content level this is great but the live recording is poor.
Would you be willing to try another one of Donald Senior’s performances?
Did Matthew: A Gospel for the Church inspire you to do anything?
It helped me evaluate my approach to Matthew's Gospel and the bible in general.
Any additional comments?
