"[A] call to a vital and powerful relationship with Jesus...delivered with a prophetic power that will bring many readers to a point of decision."—-Dr. Donald Fowler, former book review editor, Grace Theological Review
"Jesus used two disarming methods to lovingly lay bare the human heart: question and story. In THE INQUISITIVE CHRIST, Cara Murphy, by way of Scripture and strikingly honest personal stories, leads us deep into the questions Jesus asked--and still asks. The Master, we learn, never uses questions to shame or accuse but always to invite and illuminate and usher us, if we're willing, into freedom and life."—-Brian Morykon, director of communications, Renovaré
"It's been a long time since I've read a book with such lovely prose. It's been a long time since I've read a book that asks such probing questions. THE INQUISITIVE CHRIST is an exquisite work, one for those who seek not only truth, but goodness and beauty, too."—-Karen Swallow Prior, author of On Reading Well and Fierce Convictions
"Cara L. T. Murphy offers an exquisitely unique and refreshing look at the spacious questions of Jesus Christ.
