Quest 52 proves it. In this book, Mark Moore gives us everything we need to spend a year of daily moments learning to know and love Jesus more. It’s accessible and energizing.” — Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church
Following the breakthrough success of his bestselling debut, Core 52: A Fifteen-Minute Daily Guide to Build Your Bible IQ in a Year
, pastor and professor Mark Moore launches a new series, Quest 52: A Fifteen-Minute-a-Day Yearlong Pursuit of Jesus
and Quest 52 Student Edition (Nov. 16, 2021, WaterBrook trade paper
), on encountering and experiencing the life and heart of Jesus as never before. In this new 52-week journey, the Phoenix-based pastor and former New Testament professor presents a simple reading plan on the life of Jesus, using a process he developed from over almost 40 years of helping people make sense of Christianity.
“Even after teaching the life of Christ for twenty years at the college level,” Moore writes, “I am surprised with breathtaking regularity when I get a glimpse of him I haven’t seen before. I am still mystified by his majesty. The deeper I dig, the higher I realize he is. He is always beyond my grasp, even when he walks beside me. The more I see of him, the less I think I really know him.” Quest 52
highlights the key moments from Jesus’s life, revealing his identity, his expectations, his priorities, and his ultimate purpose. Each week features a handpicked gospel reading from the life of Jesus, plus an Old Testament passage foreshadowing his coming, a New Testament story revealing his impact, an invitation to discuss insights with fellow travelers, and practical ways to put what you’ve learned into practice.
Relevant issues addressed include the following:
• Who is Jesus?
• Does Jesus really care about your pain?
• Who are social influencers for Jesus?
• What does Jesus say about social justice?
• What are ways to survive these difficult days?
• Was Jesus political?
In an age where we are constantly being overwhelmed by an influx of information, subjectivity, and mixed messaging, reminders of what is true and lasting become even more necessary and important. As Moore explains, “[Jesus] is worth pursuing. He is worth devoting a year to discovering what those first disciples discovered in the boat: he is beyond our expectations and beside us all the way. Do you want to know him, the real Jesus? Do you want to absorb his influence so you can influence others? If so, welcome to the quest.” A Quest 52 Student Edition will release simultaneously, providing a secondary resource that can be adopted for church-wide campaigns, student and youth groups, and family devotions.
