Tell us about The Life of Jesus: History’s Great Love Story.

The Life of Jesus provides a brief overview of history’s great love story.

It gives a summary of the birth and boyhood of Jesus and describes his ministry through three Passover Festivals.

It includes a detailed chronology of Jesus’ life and ministry, and examines why such a popular, loving, and compassionate young leader would encounter such intense hostility and opposition, leading to his crucifixion.

Offering fresh insights, The Life of Jesus points you to the great good news of who Jesus is and what he did.

What inspired you to write The Life of Jesus: History’s Great Love Story?

The life of Jesus is a vast topic, with millions of books written about it. I wanted to write a summary overview that people of all ages could read and understand.

In the book, I explore why such a young, radical leader who loved all people of all races was executed, and why we date our calendars and diaries from the time of his birth. I hope my contribution provides a helpful overview.

How did your background and experience influence your writing?

I have always believed in Jesus. Even as a small boy, I loved to hear and read stories about him because he was so unique and different. He always did what was good. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, set people free from addictions and evil, performed miracles, and even raised dead people. Huge crowds of people followed him and wanted him to be their king. Now, billions of people follow him, captivated and transformed by his love.

Through my experience teaching about Jesus in colleges in five countries, and speaking about Him through invitations from community groups in twenty countries, my passion and dedication has grown. Through the book, I offer fresh insights into his life and love.

What is one message you would like readers to remember?

Jesus’ unique and wonderful life, his brutal death for us, and his powerful resurrection, all reveal his and God’s eternal love for us all. That love, powerfully shown on the cross, has transformed billions of lives, restoring believers to an intimate and eternal relationship with God and with others.
