The greatest teacher who ever lived, Jesus knew how to reach his audience where they were at. Whether preaching to a group in parable or holding an intimate conversation, he had an unequaled ability to get across the message that his listeners needed to hear.

His teachings in the Gospels speak no less directly to us, today. But so rich in meaning are the words of our incarnate God, so layered and profound his messages, that often we fail to do more than scratch their surface. And over time, our habit of superficial encounter with the Word can become self-perpetuating.

In Secrets from Heaven, Fr. Sebastian Walshe helps you break free from stale and familiar takes on the gospel, giving you new eyes to see and new ears to hear the inexhaustible depths of Christ’s wisdom. The Parable of the Sowers, the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, the woman caught in adultery—all these and more come alive in fresh ways, revealing significant details and nuances, scriptural/historical connections, and testaments to Christ’s rhetorical and pedagogical genius that you’ve never noted before.

You’ll marvel at Jesus’ skill as an evangelist; but more importantly, you’ll be powerfully moved to faith and love just as those who heard him in person long ago.

Nothing Jesus taught was truly “secret”—he revealed the Father for all the world to see. But that doesn’t mean his revelation is simplistic. Read Secrets from Heaven and go deeper into the saving mysteries of his life and teaching.

    I am so glad to be reading this book. I am impressed by it's depth and spot on clarity in describing how and why Jesus said and did the things He did. Reading this book opened a whole new dimension of understanding for me. In fact I wish I had had this book earlier in my Catholic upbringing. I want to give this book as a gift to many of my "Church-going" friends.
