This is the complete table of contents from Following Christ Through The Gospels.

This is a big list! I’m sure you’ll find many passages here that will be wonderful to go through with Fr. Basset as your own expert guide.

Don’t forget that I’ve put passage #75 in the book online for you to read as an example, and Fr. Basset’s own “How To Use This Book” chapter is also online. (Both links open new windows.)
