This book draws us to Matthew 11, where Jesus describes himself as 'gentle and lowly in heart,' longing for his people to find rest in him.

Christians know that God loves them, but often think that he is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them.

As a result, they focus a lot on what Jesus has done to appease God’s wrath for sin. But how does Jesus Christ actually feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?

The gospel is primarily about God’s heart drawn to his people, a heart of tender love for the sinful and suffering.

These chapters take readers into the depths of Christ’s very heart for sinners, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of who Christ is and encouraging readers with the affections of Christ for his people.

His longing heart for sinners will comfort and sustain readers in their up-and-down lives.

Endorsements

“Gentle and Lowly comes from the pen of someone who has not just profited from reading the Puritans - but who, more importantly, has read the Bible under their tutelage. One short book can never be enough to convey all the glory of the character of Christ, but this book deftly unpacks something we often overlook: Christ is meek and lowly in heart and gives rest to those who labor and are burdened. Written with pastoral gentleness and quiet beauty, it teases out what twenty biblical texts contribute to this portrait of the heart of Christ, all of it brought together to bring comfort, strength, and rest to believers.”

“My life has been transformed by the beautiful, staggering truths in Gentle and Lowly. Dane Ortlund lifts our eyes to see Christ’s compassion-filled heart for sinners and sufferers, proving that Jesus is no reluctant Saviour but one who delights in showing his mercy. For any feeling bruised, weary, or empty, this is the balm for you.”

Michael Reeves, President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology, Oxford, United Kingdom, author of Rejoice and Tremble and The Good God

“Dane Ortlund helps us rediscover the heart of Jesus that is the very heart of the gospel. This delightful book opens up the sheer immensity of Jesus’s tender love for us. As you immerse yourself in Christ’s very heart, you’ll find your own heart warmed at the fire of the love of God. Ortlund opens up a neglected theme among the Puritans (in bite-sized chunks that won’t overwhelm you), where you’ll discover their grasp of the beauty of Jesus’s love. Your soul needs this book. I highly recommend it.”
