Includes Discussion Questions

We hear a lot about what Jesus said. But what did he do? How did he live? During the days of his ministry, how did he care for his own body, heart, mind, and soul?

In this compelling book, Mary Jane Gorman looks behind and between the words of Jesus to discover his humanity, painting a vivid portrait of the life he called us all to live.

  1. Tending the Body includes sections on food, exercise, rest, healing touch
  2. Tending the Heart--anger, grief, compassion, passion, priorities, relationships
  3. Tending the Mind--exercise, rest, wit, reflection, openness
  4. Tending the Soul--nature, wilderness, forgiveness, prayer, obedience
  5. Tending Toward Wholeness: Interconnections

“Gentle, practical, and wise, Mary Jane Gorman issues an invitation to look closely at Jesus’ humanity and in particular the way he cared for his entire being: body, heart, mind, and soul.”
     -Patricia D. Brown, Author of Spirit Gifts

“If you're earnestly seeking guidance in development of a spirituality which touches every aspect of your life, you will want to let this skilled spiritual guide lead you to the Master himself.”
