A fresh 'one-stop' book on Jesus, looking at the evidence for him, at what he did and at how he can affect our lives today. There is no denying the importance of Jesus Christ in the history of humankind. He has walked through the last two thousand years of history, of empires, governments, political systems and philosophies and has remained as a dominant, challenging, yet mysterious presence. In The Life J.John and Chris Walley achieve an uncommon blend - a serious book for popular use and a popular book for serious reading. - Evangelism - in order to invite people to come to Jesus we need to know who he is. - Education - this book attempts to counter some of the modern misconceptions about Jesus i.e. that he was just another prophet/guru. - Many recent books written on Jesus, separate the 'Jesus of History' and the 'Christ of Faith' The Life demonstrates how the two are inextricably linked.
