Overview

It is a matter of history that, at or near the beginning of what has since come to be known as the Christian era, the Man Jesus, surnamed the Christ, was born in Bethlehem of Judea.[1] The principal data as to His birth, life, and death are so well attested as to be reasonably indisputable; they are facts of record, and are accepted as essentially authentic by the civilized world at large. True, there are diversities of deduction based on alleged discrepancies in the records of the past as to circumstantial details; but such differences are of strictly minor importance, for none of them nor all taken together cast a shadow of rational doubt upon the historicity of the earthly existence of the Man known in literature as Jesus of Nazareth.

As to who and what He was there are dissensions of grave moment dividing the opinions of men; and this divergence of conception and belief is most pronounced upon those matters to which the greatest importance attaches. The solemn testimonies of millions dead and of millions living unite in proclaiming Him as divine, the Son of the Living God, the Redeemer and Savior of the human race, the Eternal Judge of the souls of men, the Chosen and Anointed of the Father—in short, the Christ. Others there are who deny His Godhood while extolling the transcendent qualities of His unparalleled and unapproachable Manhood.

To the student of history this Man among men stands first, foremost, and alone, as a directing personality in the world's progression. Mankind has never produced a leader to rank with Him. Regarded solely as a historic personage He is unique. Judged by the standard of human estimation, Jesus of Nazareth is supreme among men by reason of the excellence of His personal character, the simplicity, beauty, and genuine worth of His precepts, and the influence of His example and doctrines in the advancement of the race. To these distinguishing characteristics of surpassing greatness the devout Christian soul adds an attribute that far exceeds the sum of all the others—the divinity of Christ's origin and the eternal reality of His status as Lord and God.

I'm very pleased to have this in my tablet. I'm almost finished reading it for the second time in the hard copy - 1 chapter to go. It's going to be so convenient now, having it in my tablet. It comes with all the author's notes (commentaries) and footnotes at the ends of the chapters, just like the hard copy. Elder Talmage helps bring so much to light. This book is a great way to get to know our Savior better! Such an inexpensive way to gain such valuable knowledge!

I wanted a reference for Christ and his life. A timeline of sorts written in a language I could understand and this was perfect.

What a great Edition! Hardcover Durability, with large enough font size to make reading comfortable, unlike the tiny-print Missionary Reference Library editions. In a house full of kids, the durability is really, really helpful. Thanks! :-)

I challenge you to see if you can read this book only once! Like I did, I bet you'll read it again and again. If you are a Christian, or want to learn more about Christ, this is the place.

This book stands as a witness of Jesus Christ, and reveals the life of Christ as only an Apostle could.
