Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers

Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers

“I have read no book that more carefully, thoroughly, and tenderly displays Christ’s heart.”
Paul David Tripp, President, Paul Tripp Ministries; author, New Morning Mercies and My Heart Cries Out

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done―but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferers today.
