Kissing the Leper
 

Seeing Jesus in the Least of These

Authored by Brad Jersak
Introduction by Eugene H. Peterson, Andy MacPherson
Cover design or artwork by Matt Borck

Kissing the Leper is about eyes that see. Jesus once counselled us to "buy medicine for your eyes from me so that you can see, really see" (Rev. 3:18 MSG). Kissing the Leper is about getting our eyes repaired from religious and cultural prejudice so that we can see Jesus in others, especially those that our world discards as "the least." The author has compiled the voices and testimonies of historical and contemporary practitioners to develop a devotional theology of encounter. Specifically, Brad Jersak challenges us to meet and welcome Christ in human form from society's margins to the banqueting table of God.
