Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
Dane C. Ortlund
Crossway, 2020, 206 Pages
Believers can usually recite well what Jesus Christ has done on their behalf. But few seem to know who he really is – his core, incomparable, and gentle nature. Ortlund (son of well-known preacher John Ortlund) revels Jesus’ deepest heart for his people, especially those weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven. Jesus summarized his nature when he said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is toward all humankind – sinners and sufferers.
