Summary
Jesus lived two millennia ago--and he is still the most talked-about person today. Some see him as a good teacher; others, a prophet; and for hundreds of millions of Christians, he is Lord. This is amazing, considering Jesus lived in a time with no mass communication or efficient transportation. He never even left his own country, and yet he is the founder of a church that operates in nearly every country in the world. This volume draws from the ultimate resource--the Bible--to connect you to the only One who was ever fully human and fully divine. Your life will be forever changed by this encounter with the most important person you will ever know
