Many today fear that we hover on the brink of global collapse. War, terrorism, poverty and disease provoke a sense of despair. Yet in our midst stands Jesus Christ, undaunted by the brutal realities of a world that rejects him. And as he looks at each of us, he asks directly and personally, "Will you have faith in me?"
In this powerful book Father Acklin reveals the passionate love of God for every person, love that will not be denied or defeated. God is for us in spite of our indifference. God has not been eclipsed by the world's agenda. God will never abandon us. God will always seek out the wounded and lost. We have his guarantee that this is so because the suffering and deaththe passionof Jesus clinched the deal confirming God's commitment to his creation.
The Passion of the Lamb helps us answer the only question that ultimately matters: Will we have faith in Jesus?
