The One: Experience Jesus
By Carlos Darby (Thomas Nelson)
Everything about this book—look, feel, content and purpose—screams beauty, excellence and intentionality. Throughout this creative intersection of writing, photography and reflection, readers will find Jesus wonderfully revealed and expressed. Darby succeeds at his goal of “making the Scriptures and the themes found in the Bible more approachable and less intimidating.”
At once contemplative and compelling, it’s not so much a work to read as it is a work to ponder and savor in reflection. An addendum to the introduction entitled, “The Rise & Fall” presents an amazingly concise and visually engaging explanation of the gospel. With this in mind, the book is not only devotional in nature but should be considered an evangelistic tool, as well.
