The book chosen by GIFT participants for the fall of 2018 was:
The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind—A New Perspective on Christ and His Message by Cynthia Bourgeault
If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus's vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teachings for yourself.
There are few spiritual teachers who give us genuinely fresh insight, but even fewer who give us the tools so we can come to those insights ourselves. Cynthia Bourgeault does both, and does them very well.
—Richard Rohr, OFM
A masterful work. Cynthia Bourgeault invites us to follow Jesus’s path of self-emptying love, and she describes wisdom practices that we Christians can use every day to transform our own minds so that we too can see with the eyes of Christ.
