Pub. Date:
Drawing on a lifetime of study and reflection, the author of the Joshua series presents his long-awaited, revelatory, and deeply personal work on Jesus.In his immensely popular Joshua novels, Joseph Girzone depicted Jesus in the modern-day world, using compelling fiction to elucidate Jesus’ message and teachings. Now Girzone provides a powerful new perspective on Jesus. Based on scripture and written in Girzone’s lively, non-doctrinal style, it brings the theology that animates his fiction into vibrant focus. Girzone combines the gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, personal anecdotes, tales from the Bible, and stories he has gathered from people around the world to create an uncommon and profoundly inspiring portrait. He writes with candor and grace about the revelations that shape his beliefs and the mysteries that continue to intrigue him. The definitive statement of Girzone’s views on Jesus’ mission on earth and its meaning for today’s readers, Jesus is Girzone’s magnum opus.
