Who is Jesus? Is he the blonde-haired, blue-eyed saviour of bad religious art? Or is he just another ‘good thing’, alongside Buddha and crystals? Or is he a fiction – the product of a bunch of first-century deluded fanatics?
Bill Donahue has met the real-life dynamic Jesus who even in the twenty-first century can captivate us and transform our lives. And we can encounter him too. In forty short sections, ideal for daily reading, Donahue introduces us to Jesus as provocative teacher, sacred friend, truthful revealer, extreme forgiver, authentic leader, compassionate healer, relentless lover and supreme conqueror. With guidelines for Bible reading and prayer you will find that you too experience the living, breathing, Son of God.
‘Reading this book will give you a comprehensive picture of the grandest theme of all: Jesus … Discover how excitingly relevant Jesus is to our day-to-day lives.’ Ajith Fernando, National Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka.
‘Knowing Jesus personally is the essence of salvation, yet little help has been provided as to how to get to know Christ. This book goes a long way to remedy that absence.’ Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Eastern University, Pennsylvania, USA.
