Product Description

Do you long for a deeper experience of Jesus' presence? To sit at his feet and hear His words spoken to your heart? Would you like Jesus to make His home with you in a new way?
In God's Favorite Place on Earth, Frank Viola explores what it means for Jesus to make His home with you through the story of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. Told in narrative through Lazarus' perspective, you'll discover anew what made the village of Bethany so special to Jesus. The chief reason being that in many other places Jesus was rejected, but in Bethany, He was welcomed, revered, and loved.
As Lazarus' story draws to its startling and profound conclusion, you'll be drawn into its drama. Discover how you too can become God's favorite place on earth, and be set free to love and serve Jesus like never before.

Publisher's Description

When He came to earth, Jesus Christ was rejected in every quarter in which He stepped. The Creator was rejected by His own creation. "He came to His own and His own received Him not," said John. For this reason, Jesus Christ had "no where to lay His head." There was one exception, however. A little village just outside of Jerusalem named Bethany. Bethany was the only place on earth where Jesus was completely received.

God’s Favorite Place on Earth is a retelling of Jesus’ many visits to Bethany and a relaying of the message it holds for us today. Frank Viola presents a beautifully crafted narrative from the viewpoint of Lazarus, one of the people who lived in Bethany with his two sisters. This incomparable story not only brings the Gospel narratives to life, but it addresses the struggle against doubt, discouragement, fear, guilt, rejection, and spiritual apathy that challenges countless Christians today. In profoundly moving prose, God’s Favorite Place on Earth will captivate your heart with its beauty, charm, and depth. In this book you will discover how to live as a "Bethany" in our world today, being set free to love and follow Jesus like never before.
