Dane Ortlund On the Gentle and Lowly Heart of Jesus

Longtime listeners of the Haven Today radio broadcast have a fond appreciation for the ministry’s third speaker: Ray Ortlund. A trusted voice on the radio, Ray also served as a mentor to Charles as he took the helm about twenty years ago. Today, Charles goes full circle and interviews Ray’s grandson, Dane, about his journey to discover the heart of Jesus. The result became a profound little book called Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers, which is quickly becoming a staple for Christians wanting to draw nearer to Christ today.

Dane Ortlund (PhD, Wheaton College) serves as senior pastor of Naperville Presbyterian Church. He is the author of several books, including Gentle and Lowly, and the editor of the Knowing the Bible series and the Short Studies in Biblical Theology series. Dane lives with his wife, Stacey, and their five children in Naperville, Illinois.

    This book is a breath of fresh air in modern Christian books. It’s not just a book, it’s a theological breakdown that puts a beating heart to a broken world. It will refresh your love for humanity reminding us of the merciful God we serve.
    You won’t leave this book unchanged. Your friends and family will thank you.
