Présentation du livre «Doux et humble de cœur» de Dane Ortlund

Presentation of the book "Gentle and lowly" by Dane Ortlund

It's easy to get nervous, overwhelmed, frustrated and cynical in these uncertain and difficult days. We try to believe that God loves us, but are our lives proof that he has truly abandoned us? The gospel not only tells us what Christ did, it shows us how much he cares for us in our struggle against sin and suffering.

Christians can easily get the impression that Jesus is perpetually disappointed and frustrated with their Christian walk, and even on the verge of abandoning them. They know what Jesus did for them, but often they have a superficial knowledge of him. What are his feelings when he considers the sins and failures of his people?

In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as “meek and lowly in heart,” longing for his people to find rest in him. This book draws on his words, delving into passages in the Bible that speak of Christ's affection for sinners to encourage weary and faltering believers on their journey to heaven.
