The Little Him Book: Looking at the Jesus Who Makes Our Hearts Sing by Peter Mead
Christianity is about Christ. One of the most famous verses in the Bible declares that God loved and gave, so that if we believe in the one God gave, we will have eternal life. That might seem familiar, but has the truth of the verse really gripped our hearts?
In The Little Him Book, Peter Mead draws our focus back to the One who is at the center of our faith. But more than that, it is a call to make Him the center of your identity, worship, love and life.
This little book is all about getting to know Jesus better and delighting in him more.
‘Instead of giving us ten steps for self-improvement, Peter Mead gives us ten fresh views of Christ to lift our hearts and our perspective. It’s like a holiday in the Caribbean for the soul: warm, refreshing, wonderful!’

‘This short book has a sweet message: Jesus is everything you need in every way. The Little Him Book takes you on a journey through the Bible to meet Jesus afresh, and the view is stunning.’
Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Abergavenny
‘As our understanding of Christ deepens, so does our praise and adoration of him. This short book assists us to do both. Peter Mead unpacks some of the main attributes and titles of Christ in an engaging and accessible way. He enables the reader to grasp deep spiritual truths with such clarity that you won’t feel overwhelmed by words, but overwhelmed with wonder! That same wonder draws us to worship. It is appropriate therefore, that words from some of the greatest hymns ever penned furnish each chapter with a helpful response to all that we have read. The illustrative material, the scripture passages, reflections, questions and Hymns, make this a superb devotional book and one which I trust will achieve everything the author intended.’
