When Christians struggle with sin, they can easily feel that God is close to giving up on them. But in Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as “gentle and lowly in heart,” longing for believers to find rest in him. The good news of the gospel flows from God’s deepest love for his people. 

In this concise book adapted from the bestselling Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund, readers will encounter Jesus’s tender heart for sinners and sufferers. Written for a wide audience—including younger readers, new Christians, and those just beginning to explore the Christian faith—it features easy-to-read terms and helpful explanations. The chapters are also short enough to read at bedtime, around the dinner table, or during lunchtime. The Heart of Jesus dives deep into Bible passages that speak of who Christ is, comforting and sustaining readers with the affections of Christ for his people.

  • Adapted from Gentle and Lowly: Smaller chapters and sentences are ideal for younger readers and busy families, as well as those who might have difficulty reading a longer book
  • Provides a Unique Perspective: Confronts readers’ typical thoughts on God’s heart
  • Scripture-Based: Explores passages throughout the whole Bible to give readers a full picture of God’s heart for sinners

This is a sweet and comforting book that will grow your knowledge, provoke your worship, and inspire your devotion. Best of all, it will help you to know, love, and trust our God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

During a difficult time in my life, the Lord used Dane Ortlund to remind me of the beautiful reality of Christ’s love—that he is gentle and lowly in heart, overflowing with perfect love and compassion for sinners like me. Now, in The Heart of Jesus, we find these comforting gospel truths made even more accessible to needful, weary souls. I pray this book is read widely, leading many to draw near to Christ for cleansing mercy and true rest.

As a grandfather who loves to read to his grandchildren, I’m always on the lookout for good books. I look for works that will bring them joy as well as nurture their love for the Lord. I also look forward to the day when I can give them great books to read on their own. One of the first books I plan to give them is Dane Ortlund’s The Heart of Jesus. I wouldn’t be surprised if they read it over and over—just as I have read and reread Ortlund’s Gentle and Lowly.
