Jesus once counseled us to “Buy medicine for your eyes from me so you can see, really see”
(Rev. 3:18 MSG). Kissing the Leper is about getting our eyes repaired from religious and cultural prejudice so that we can see Jesus in others, especially those that our world discards as “the least.” The author has compiled the voices and testimonies of historical and contemporary practitioners to develop a devotional theology of encounter. Specifically, he challenges us to meet and welcome Christ in human form from the society’s margins to the banqueting table of God.
Kissing the Leper:
Part 1. Seeing Jesus in the least of these
Part 2. Being Jesus to the least of these
Part 3. Meeting Jesus through the least of these
Part 4. Joining Jesus at the open table
Part 5. Following Jesus on the narrow path
