Description

These short but profound reflections from David Mathis, author of The Christmas We Didn’t Expect, will help you to look deeper at Jesus’ life, sacrificial death and spectacular resurrection—enabling you to treasure anew who Jesus is and what he has done for us.

Many of us are so familiar with the Easter story that it becomes easy to miss subtle details and difficult to really enjoy its meaning. This book will help you to pause and marvel at Jesus, whose now-glorified wounds are a sign of his unfailing love and the decisive victory that he has won:

“He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

This book works fantastically as a devotional at any time of year. The chapters on Holy Week make it especially helpful during the Lent season and at Easter.

Author, Gentle and Lowly

Scripture speaks of ‘the unsearchable riches of Christ’ (Ephesians 3:8). In Rich Wounds, David takes us into these endless riches with his beautiful reflections on the Savior. A deeply edifying book.

Linda Allcock

Author, Head, Heart, Hands and Deeper Still

Weaving together biblical truth, historical treasures mined from hymns, and contemporary challenging insights, Mathis has produced a masterpiece guaranteed to refresh even the most stagnant heart. Reading these short, simple yet deeply profound reflections, I was compelled to put down Ma- this’s book, open my Bible, and worship.

D.A. Carson

Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

David Mathis takes one treasure at a time, drawn from the life, death, res- urrection, and exaltation of Jesus, and reverently unpacks it and meditates on it. This book is well-written and edifying.
