Sounding the Depths by Michael A. Milton


This is a short series of expository messages on the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ recorded in John 17. Michael Milton has written in a way that will be encouraging and uplifting to any Christian. The subtitle ‘When Jesus prays for his people’ suggests the encouragement this book offers in examining this wonderful prayer of Jesus. (From the Publisher’s Website)


“One way to recover that relationship [with Jesus] is to come into contact with the love of Jesus through one of the most extraordinary prayers ever uttered: the High Priestly Prayer of Jesus in John 17. My prayer is that as we begin this series, we will so immerse ourselves in the truths of this prayer that we will not only know the words of Christianity but also the music of Christianity.” (From Chapter 1, Page 9)


Few passages in scripture are as comforting as John 17. As we read it, we get a glimpse into the heart of Jesus for His followers. Michael Milton has compiled 6 sermons on John 17 in this book, Sounding The Depths.

This book is written for the Christian. It deals with topics such as: the unity of purpose between the Father and Son, Jesus’ compassion for His followers, the sanctifying power of the truth of God’s word, submission to God, faith in God’s purposes, humility in service to God, and what it means to trust in the Christ who prays for you.

The chapter on submission (chapter 3) was especially convicting and encouraging to me. As I delved deeper into this book and Jesus’ prayer, I was struck by God’s wisdom and love for his people. I found this book to be deeply refreshing as Michael Milton skillfully expounded the prayer of our Savior.

I would highly recommend this book to all who would know the deep, deep love of Jesus. Thank you Michael Milton and EP Books for this blessed little book. May it be widely read and used by God to rekindle the hearts of His people.
