What is your first thought when the name of Jesus comes to mind? How would answer someone who asked you what he is like? In this book, Dane Ortlund informs basic questions like these about the heart of Christ. He asks specifically, “Who is he...what is most natural to him...what flows out most freely, most instinctively?” (13). Ortlund is aiming to give the reader a clearsighted view of Christ’s glory. Many books have been written on the work of Christ, what he has done and accomplished on behalf of sinners. But Ortlund narrows his focus as he considers Christ’s heart and disposition toward sinners. Certainly, who he is and what he has done cannot be teased apart ultimately, and it would be unwise to do so, but Ortlund’s treatment on the heart of Christ in this book is biblically sound and illustrative of the depth of Christ’s person.

He heads off some early objections about overly focusing on the humanity of Christ, or force feeding this view of Christ that isn’t really there. However, Ortlund locates doctrine from Scripture, drawing from Matthew 11:28-30, Hebrews 4:15, 5:2, 7:25 and John 6:37. Ortlund also visits the deep well of Puritan knowledge on the subject. John Bunyan and Thomas Goodwin feature prominently as they write about the topic of Christ’s gentle heart. Others like Richard Sibbes, John Owen, John Flavel, and Jonathan Edwards share their wisdom.

Christ’s gentle, lowly, loving, and sympathetic heart will encourage weary, disheartened, anxious, and despondent Christians. His sympathy, affection, and friendship toward sinners is nourishment to the soul. Ortlund’s work has filled a void in my own understanding and shown me a biblical portrait of the heart of Christ.

He is inviting. He gives rest to all who labor and are heavy laden (Matt. 11:28). He is gentle and lowly in heart. He gives rest (Matt. 11:29). He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick (Matt. 12:20). He is the bread of life and all who come to him will never hunger or thirst (John 6:35). He will never cast out those who come to him (John 6:37). He loves to the end (John 13:1). He is the king of heaven and earth and washes dirty, grimy, mud-caked feet (John 13:4-5). He is able to sympathize with our weakness (Heb. 4:15). He gives grace and help in time of need (Heb. 4:16). He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward (Heb. 5:2). He is able to completely save and lives to make intercession (Heb. 7:25). ( )

The two major points that stuck with me are God’s tendency to mercy and our inability to earn it. No matter how good we think we are, we need gods mercy more than anything.

“The posture most natural to him is not a pointed finger but open arms.”

“For those not in Christ, this life is the best it will ever get. For those in Christ, for whom Ephesians 2:7 is the eternal vista just around the next bend in the road, this life is the worst it will ever get.” ( )

Thoughtful, focused examination about the "heart" of Christ - read with other women from Lighthouse Church (Holly Mehrling's book club)... what a rich and reassuring exploration of Christ's nature and the Triune God's love for us sinners. No matter what. No matter how apart from God's grace we feel, or how miserably we fail in our efforts to holy living, or spiritual growth... I had no idea how much this lovely little study (filled with Scripture) would minister to my aching heart.
" 'Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.' Matthew 11:28 Christians know what Jesus Christ has done--but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is 'gentle and lowly in heart.' This book reflects on those words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferes today" (front flap). As Paul E Miller says (back cover recommend blurbs) "Your soul needs this book. I highly recommend it". ( )

(2) What it means that Jesus is lowly (20)
(3) Were the healings of Jesus miracles? (31) ( )

This book works better as a daily devotional then as a study. It is very repetitive and the author continually quotes great Christian leaders from our Puritan past, but these quotes do not add much to the argument except to highlight how much the author has read old Christian works.

The message of the book is important, but the writing could be better. ( )
