Throughout the Gospels, Jesus asks a lot of questions—questions that challenge and unsettle. Questions that cut to the heart of human experience. Questions that—like a plow plunging deep into hard soil—split life open.

In this book distinguished theologian Michael Buckley meditates on fourteen key personal questions that Jesus asks in the Gospel of John—such questions as "What do you seek?" "Do you know what I have done to you?" "How can you believe?" "Do you take offense at this?" "Do you love me?"

Readers of Buckley's What Do You Seek? will be challenged anew by the searching, probing questions of Jesus.
Sarah Coakley
—University of Cambridge
"Michael Buckley's lovely little book of meditations on the questions of Jesus drips with his life's scholarly learning, but with such a light touch that the reader is drawn ever more deeply into the question with which the book opens: What do you seek? This is a modern classic in the Ignatian tradition—accessible, memorable, and profound."
Lisa Cahill
—Boston College
"In this unusual and creative work, Fr. Buckley shares with a wider audience the gifts and insights that for decades have made him a revered teacher, a brilliant scholar, and an innovative interpreter of contemporary theology."
Bible Today
"Draws on a wide range of literature and a lifelong fund of mature reflection on Christian experience. This is quality spiritual reading."
