Gospeled Lives

Encounters with Jesus, A Lenten Study  

por John Indermark
Libro de bolsillo

"Gospeled" lives are lives that have encountered Jesus Christ. Christ's call leads to a continually unfolding story for each of us.

An encounter with the living Christ demands a response, John Indermark says. In this book you will learn about New Testament characters who encountered Jesus. Some responded with joy and gratitude. Others ignored or rejected his offer of good news.

Indermark's powerful reflections on the various biblical characters, along with daily reading of scripture, written prayers, and suggested exercises, make an ideal 6-week study for individuals or groups. Each chapter contains 5 daily readings.

Here are a few of the New Testament characters you will explore:

  • Bartimaeus
  • The women at Jesus' tomb
  • Mary and Jesus' family
  • The slave of the high priest
  • A rich young man
  • Herod Antipas
  • The woman with the hemorrhage
  • The Gerasene demoniac
  • Mary Magdalene
  • Ten lepers

Study this book during Lent or any time you or your small group wants to think more deeply about what it means to hear and respond to Christ's word.

Includes a Leader's Guide.

John Indermark is a writer and retired United Church of Christ pastor. He has authored a number of books published by Upper Room Books and Abingdon Press, in addition to writing for a variety of curriculum resources. John and his wife, Judy, are now full-time residents of Tucson, having traded the rainforests of southwest Washington for the Sonoran desert. They are members of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Tucson. When John is not writing, he enjoys taking photographs of landscape and wildlife in the Sonora region and elsewhere when he and Judy travel.


"Indermark's blend of reflection with action in response to the biblical readings is artfully achieved and reminds us that our gospeled lives are unfinished stories and unending conversations. Peppered with nuggets of wisdom and insight, his engaging storytelling provokes imagination, callling us to reflect on our encounters that call, challenge, transform, and empower."
