    In this timeless spiritual classic, readers share in the profound and touching experience of Gabrielle Bossis, a French nurse and playwright, as she hears the inner voice of Jesus in the core of her being. Recorded in her diary from 1936 to 1950, their tender exchanges capture Jesus’s enduring presence in our daily lives, his insistence on serving others with kindness, and his encompassing love for humanity—and show that ordinary men, women, and children can experience an intimacy with Christ.
