Teaser Tuesday ~ Pursuing the Christ



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Bonus this week: I'm giving two teasers.

"Baby Jesus, I imagine Your sweet baby face: contorted when You cry, delightfully toothless when You coo, alert and curios as You experience your new surroundings. In my imagination, I can feel Your soft baby skin and hear Your funny baby noises"

~ p. 72, Pursuing the Christ by Jennifer Kennedy Dean

"Jesus entered earth's atmosphere quietly one night in Bethlehem's stable, and the promise You had first spoken in the Garden of Eden *(Genesis 3:15) was fulfilled...Jesus, You are the proof that our God is a God whose promises are sure."

~p. 74, Pursuing the Christ by Jennifer Kennedy Dean

Just the reference is in the book so I added the verse here for your benefit.
*Genesis 3:15 (KJV) - "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
