A Personal Journey into John 17
Luther wrote of John 17: "It is so deep, so rich, so wide, no one can fathom it." John Knox had the chapter read to him every day of his last illness. William Temple once reflected that "it is perhaps the most sacred passage even in the four Gospels." John Stott called it "one of the profoundest chapters of the Bible."
Michael Cassidy looks at Jesus' vision and the church's mundane reality with care and prayerful reflection, asking: Where have we gone wrong? What can we do? How should we amend our ways? He augments his text with dozens of luminous and engaging anecdotes. This is an enormously
readable and attractive book, permeated with Michael's generous, engaging spirit and shot through with insights into the human condition.
