For two thousand years the figure of Jesus has been the most powerful and pervasive influence on Western culture, not only in religion and ethics but also in politics, literature, music, and the visual arts. This book features insights from Scot McKnight, author of the bestselling book The Jesus Creed. McKnight's compelling introduction provides helpful background information on the sources of our information (the Gospels), the religious setting of Jesus' life, the heart of Jesus' teaching, and a summation of what kind of person Jesus was. The book then offers a continuous narrative account of the life and words of Jesus, woven together from the four canonical Gospels. All who seek to know more about Jesus and his message for people today will enjoy this book.
