God’s Favorite Place on Earth
3 in stock
When He came to earth, Jesus Christ was rejected in every quarter in which He stepped. The Creator was rejected by His own creation. â€śHe came to His own and His own received Him not,â€ť said John.Â For this reason, Jesus Christ had â€śno where to lay His head.â€ť There was one exception, however. A little village just outside of Jerusalem namedÂ Bethany.Â Bethany was the only place on earth where Jesus was completely received.
Godâ€™s Favorite Place on EarthÂ is a retelling of Jesusâ€™ many visits to Bethany and a relaying of the message it holds for us today. Frank Viola presents a beautifully crafted narrative from the viewpoint of Lazarus, one of the people who lived in Bethany with his two sisters.Â This incomparable story not only brings the Gospel narratives to life, but it addresses the struggle against doubt, discouragement, fear, guilt, rejection, and spiritual apathy that challenges countless Christians today. In profoundly moving prose,Â Godâ€™s Favorite Place on EarthÂ will captivate your heart with its beauty, charm, and depth. In this book you will discover how to live as a â€śBethanyâ€ť in our world today, being set free to love and follow Jesus like never before.
