This book of daily readings offers a wonderfully fresh way of deepening the way that we talk to God. Alongside author Henry Martin, we "eavesdrop" or "listen in" on forty-nine instances of people who actually spoke to Jesus in the Bible and ask what we can learn from what they said and how he responded. Sometimes his answers brought delight to those who asked him, and sometimes his response was not what they expected or hoped for. In the final section of the book, readers encounter the conversations that took place during Jesus' final days and bring us closer to him during Holy Week. Eavesdropping can be read in daily sittings at any time of year and is particularly suitable for Lent.
