Book review: Things that Jesus did by Doug Rowston
Doug Rowston’s Things that Jesus did brings his considerable scholarship alongside personal stories and reflections from believers throughout the centuries to invite readers to both understand and experience the miracle stories of the gospels. He draws on insights from archaeology, geography, and history to provide helpful background commentary, but his real strength in his ability to weave personal stories – of his own, those he has met, and those both known and obscure to history – to offer an invitation to the reader to engage their imagination, enter into the events, and therein encounter Jesus. His simple reflections and humble prayers at the conclusion of each story serve as a profound reminder that these stories can be encountered again and again.
