Brief chapters, ideal for daily readings, explore significant Biblical meetings, including the appearance of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary, and Moses' encounter with God in the burning bush.
Events in the Bible rarely follow an orderly course. For many of the figures whose stories it tells, their fortunes often turn, for good or bad, on important encounters with other people and with divine beings. In these moments of destiny, individuals discover something new and remarkable that changes the course of their lives.
In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Ewertowski explores over 35 meetings described in the Old and New Testaments. These include Joseph's confrontation with his brothers, Moses' encounter with God in the burning bush, the story of Rahab and the Israelite spies, the appearance of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary, and the profound encounters of ordinary people with Christ Jesus. Time and again Ewertowski shows how the weaknesses, setbacks and failures of the Bible's all-too-human protagonists are brought into harmony with a divine plan.
