AT THE NAME OF JESUS: Meditations on the Exalted Christ

Tricia McCary Rhodes, Author . Bethany $10.99 (176p) ISBN 978-0-7642-2636-6

These 31 "meditations on the exalted Christ" resonate with passion and conviction. Rhodes (The Soul at Rest) reflects on many different attributes of Christ, who is simultaneously a servant and a powerful Lord, the King of Kings and a humble companion. Rhodes casts her net widely for helpful illustrations, drawing upon some stories from the early Christian church (which is rare and refreshing for an evangelical book) while also exploring the significance of contemporary events like the Rwandan genocide of 1994. The book offers strong Bible study resources, as when Rhodes teases out important meanings from the oft-overlooked story of the New Testament prophetess Anna in the Gospel of Luke. While the writing can be overdone (e.g., excessive adjectival descriptions and italicized words), Rhodes's book speaks ardently about the love and power of the risen Christ. (Feb.)
