Pastor Dane Ortlund’s Best-Selling Book Gentle and Lowly, Now in a Beautiful Gift Edition

Christians know that God loves them, but often think that he is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. As a result, they focus a lot on what Jesus has done to appease God’s wrath for sin. But how does Jesus Christ actually feel about his people amid all their sins and failures? 

In his best-selling book, Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund takes readers into the depths of Christ’s very heart for sinners. Focusing on Jesus’s words that he is “gentle and lowly in heart,” Ortlund dives deep into Bible passages that speak of who he is, encouraging readers with the affections of Christ for his people. This gift edition features a TruTone cover, a ribbon marker, and a presentation page.  

  • Gift Edition: Dane Ortlund’s best-selling book Gentle and Lowly (250,000+ sold), produced with a TruTone cover, ribbon marker, and presentation page
  • Based on Scripture and Puritan Writings: Explores passages throughout the whole Bible and writings from the Puritans to get a full picture of God’s heart for sinners
  • Additional Gentle and Lowly Products: Gentle and Lowly Video Study (DVD and digital-download formats), the Gentle and Lowly Study Guide, and the Gentle and Lowly Journal
