Book Description from Back Cover:
The first six chapters of Mark’s gospel overflow with stories of people drawing near to Jesus, longing to experience firsthand the touch of the Savior. Over and over, Jesus responded with compassion, interacting on a personal level with individuals who had been cast aside by society, their circumstances deemed beyond hope.

As you delve into their stories in this powerful study—the first in a three-part study of the gospel of Mark—you’ll discover for yourself the difference it makes when you engage with Jesus personally and experience His touch in your life.

My Review:
Jesus: Experiencing His Touch is a no homework, 6-week-long Bible study of Mark 1-6. It's designed for small groups to do together once a week in a 40 minute period. The authors let Scripture speak for itself and were careful to keep the studied verses in context.

The study had people read several verses (which were included in the book), mark/highlight certain words, then answer several questions about what was just read. Insight boxes were included with background information that helped make a verse or point more understandable. The questions were helpful in focusing attention on all of the points that needed to be looked at. In case you missed a point, the "wrap up" section at the end of each week's lesson summarized what was learned that week.

I enjoyed this well-written study, and I'd recommend it.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
