“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” —Matthew 11:28

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is for sinners and sufferers today.
