Zero In on Him

What would it mean to fix your attention fully on the Person of Christ? To approach Him apart from systems, formulas, religion, and well-meaning Christian culture? How would you be changed? Former Moody Bible College President Joseph Stowell shows through dramatic stories and surprising insights how you can experience significant life-change as you encounter Christ as never before. And as your relationship with Him flourishes, so will your love for the people around you—the manifestation of His heart in yours. A book intended for both spiritual seekers and believers who are ready for a fresh, personal encounter with the Savior.

Combines the Joseph Stowell favorites The Final Question of Jesus and Simply Jesus

You Need Jesus…

…and a good reputation. And a solid job. And a few friends. And some extra income…

“Ands” are distractions. Soon you’ve got it all—with Jesus buried in the middle. Meanwhile, His heart longs for a deeper relationship with you. Just you. Would you dare strip away the etceteras to focus in on Him once again?

Be prepared. If you answer yes, it won’t be about just the two of you under a beautiful sunset. Soon it’ll be about your spouse. Your boss. The grocery store clerk. Jesus’ love will overflow in you, affecting everyone in your life. So dive in. Draw near to Him and enjoy the etceteras He will bring you.

Story Behind the Book

Joseph Stowell’s Simply Jesus and The Final Question of Jesus are life-changers. They take a fresh look at themes familiar to the mature believer, and also captivate those who have not yet come to know Christ as their Savior. Simply Jesus and You carefully intertwines these two books whose messages go hand in hand. For readers who have not yet discovered the stand-alone books, or for Stowell fans eager to cherish their favorites in a new package, this book is sure to become a treasured classic.
Richard Allestree says, “meditation is a serious and solemn considering of heavenly things in the word of God, to the end that Christians may understand how much of God’s word concerns them, and that their hearts may be raised to holy passion and resolution to do what it says every day they live here on earth.”

Godly meditation is part of the three legs to the stool of a Christian’s spiritual devotions. Spiritual devotions, or the three spiritual disciplines comprise Bible reading, prayer and pondering the word of God, or what we call godly meditation. This meditation is the musing and mental study of heavenly truths. It is working the practical truths of the Bible into one’s soul. In this, Christians are captivated with God’s disclosure of heavenly truths to them in the bible. In the bible God displays himself to them. God is the infinite First-being, worthy of all love for Himself, and communicates that love to His people. They in turn love him back. Loving him back includes thinking about him. Though Christians live in the world, they have communion with the God of heaven through the word of God, throughout the whole course of their lives. They do this through godly meditation.

Allestree not only shows what meditation is, and how it is to be done, but gives the reader twenty-eight meditations so that he can enter into a profitable time of daily meditation by practical example.

This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
As believers, we were made for intimacy with God. The Lord Jesus gave His life for us so that we might have intimacy with Him. God knows that the more we get to know Him, the more we will know of life—the life we were created to experience. By focusing our thoughts on Him, we will grasp more fully His goodness and be all the better for it. We’ll come to see how much we really do depend on Him for everything—from salvation, to strength for each new day, to the next breath we draw into our lungs.

To know God intimately,

trust in Him faithfully,

and depend on Him consistently.

You want this immediately. So you must seek Him passionately!

Journey now along the pathway following the sweet, enticing fragrance of heaven. But don’t expect a walk in the park. In every life there are times when the road narrows and the skies grow dark. Seasons of suffering are as certain as the glorious destination before you. Yet you are called to go, and the Source of your spirit’s restoration promises to never leave your side.

Daily inspiration from Joni Eareckson Tada gently guides your steps to a closer, more intimate walk with your Savior. And as you travel, new life—His life!—is freely yours as a gift.

Story Behind the Book

“In the thirty-seven years I’ve lived as a quadriplegic, I have been forced time and again into the arms of Jesus. Sometimes my paralysis has pushed me down the road to Calvary, like a sheepdog snapping at my heels. Sometimes suffering is like jackhammer, breaking apart my rocks of resistance and pride. Most often, my wheelchair has dumped me at the foot of the cross, and I have rested there by the overwhelming conviction that I have nowhere else to turn. But that’s okay. In fact, it’s a blessing. It’s all a bruising-of-a-blessing. Because near the cross, in the arms of Jesus, I have discovered deep, sweet, peaceable intimacy with the Savior. It’s an intimacy worth sharing!”
 BREAD OF HEAVEN helps the reader to have a greater understanding of the timeless truths of Scripture and a deeper appreciation of the grandeur of God. It offers meditations on selected Scriptures which will draw the reader's attention upwards to the Savior. Kieran Beville's daily devotional combines down-to-earth, unstuffy humanity in today's world with a biblical and God-centered approach, and draws on rich theology in a thoroughly accessible way. He addresses not just the intellect and the will, but gets to the heart, our motivational center, through the mind. If your Christian life could benefit from a short, well-written daily blast of Christ's comfort and challenge, get this book and use it! 

These short Bible-based meditations are fresh and contemporary. Beville gives to the twenty-first-century reader what earlier authors have given to theirs. Here is practical wisdom that is a helpful guide to stimulate worship and set you thinking as you begin each day with God. For each day of the year, the author has provided the reader with (1) a biblical thought, (2) a daily text, (3) a substantive paragraph, as well as (4) a daily schedule for Bible reading. All of which can be consumed in but a moment yet be considered and meditated on throughout the day. The paragraph for each daily text gives the reader the meaning of the Scripture as well as how it can be applied in our Christian lives. Beville recommends that the reader takes the necessary time to read and meditate on this spiritual food each day.
