Customer Reviews for Jesus: The Greatest Life of All
WOW!! Thanks again, Dr. Swindol, for this most refreshing, insightful, & challenging book on our Lord and Savior! So many highlights!! Here's just 2 of the statements that impacted my thinking... "Choosing between truth & expediency is how one chooses which kingdom he or she will serve!" & "Jesus recognized a basic fact of life: words are wasted on people who have no desire for truth!" There are so many more!!! A MUST READ! SIX STARS! Chaplain Dan
Recommend this book highly.Very well written and easy to read, yet at the same time filled with glimpses of the character of Our Lord.You will gain a deeper understanding of Jesus. I know it has blessed me. If you desire more knowledge of Jesus this book will help.
Dr Swindoll brings forward an ecumenism by which all Christian beliefs can digest. Each page put me in His presence! It is the best description of the mystery of the Incarnation. The Holy Spirit has truly moved the author and thus lifted me.
I am a big Charles Swindoll fan and have probably read nearly every book he has written...and loved them all. This one is no exception...except for one apparent problem: I believe that, under the subtitle..on page 174..."The Deadly Double Life"...that the entire page is pretty much in error. I can find NOWHERE in my Bible that THIS "Mary" had a "sin-stained past". If I am in error, I apologize..but my search indicates that this passage would have been referring to a NAMELESS woman who lived in the town where Jesus was and who intruded on the gathering.It was Mary of Bethany who anointed the feet of Jesus a week before his crucifixion. And it was Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast 7 demons, to whom He first appeared as the Risen Savior.This may seem nit-picky...but I feel the whole passage is misleading...and I know that that would never be this fine author's intentions.Thank you.
This is the definitely the best book of the series, although I have throughly enjoyed them all. I am now beginning to send this book and others in the series to my friends, I couldn't get to rate this book for some reason, but I wish to rate it as #5.
The style of writing is absorbing and keeps your attention. Details are presented in a way that makes them interesting, never boring. I have come to expect excellence from Charles Swindoll and I've never been disappointed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of the books of this series. This one was very good explaining all the rules they broke for the crucifixion and the trails He went through. There were, what I thought, a couple of errors in there but the book was a hard to put down one. I hope Swindoll comes out with another one, soon.
