When you talk about Jesus, he walks into the room.
Sally Phillips, Comedian and Actress

Kate Patterson explores the Aaronic blessing from the book of Numbers, phrase by shining phrase, and invites us to join her in discovering the fullness of God’s blessing, in whatever situation we find ourselves.

Format: Paperback

Tucked away in the book of Numbers, amid instructions on wave offerings and haircutting, set in the ring of God’s call to his people to be set apart for him, we find a sparkling diamond: God’s gift of shining blessing, given to a weary people wandering in the wilderness.

God blesses those who don’t deserve it, through those who don’t deserve it; again and again he chooses to bless. He is preparing his people for life in the Promised Land. And he is blessing them – us – to be a blessing to all people.

What people are saying

A note from Muddy Pearl

I first opened this lovely manuscript the morning after a terrible journey – the last train home from London had finally limped into Edinburgh at 4.45am and I into bed at 5.30am :  I needed an easy day at work.  But weary as I was, when I started to read, this book kindled a familiar feeling of excitement, of perhaps finding something very special, something that the Lord has given to someone to share with his people.

At the time I didn’t know that I was about to start on another journey, one of some personal difficulty and stress :  this little book – and all I learned about the promise of the Lord’s blessing through it – would sustain me over the months ahead in hope and promise as I worked on it.

This is one of the most genuinely encouraging, uplifting books that I have had the privilege of working on in a long time, and we are delighted to recommend it to you. It will bless you.
