Overview

In The Everything Jesus Book, you'll learn all about the charismatic Jewish carpenter who captured the hearts, minds, and souls of a small group of disciples some two thousand years ago-and inspired the growth of today's largest, and arguably most influential, religion.

Interest in Jesus is bigger than ever. More than a third of the people on this planet call themselves Christians-and that number continues to grow by some 69,000 people every 24 hours. There are Christians in every country in the world-making it the only religion in the world that can boast 100 percent total world penetration. But what do we really know about the man who started it all? The Everything Jesus Book explores the scriptural and Gnostic accounts of his life and deeds, along with his influence on civilization over the last 2000 years.

Author Biography: Jon Kennedy spent more than fifteen years as a campus minister at the University of California and Stanford University. He is the founder of several Christian-related magazines, including Renaissance Review and New Reformation.

    Excellent Summary

    In The Everything Jesus Book, Jon Kennedy successfully tackles a monumental task - concisely summarizing the life of Jesus, his teaching and his impact on humanity for more than two-millennia.

    Beginning with Jesus' birth, Kennedy offers an insightful overview of history (as it relates to Christ) up to the present day. Information is well organized into 20 chapters that truly address everything you want to know about Jesus' life, legacy and even future return. The book includes basics in church history and theology, as well as a discussion on the state of modern Christianity. Readers will find useful explanations of familiar religious terms (whose definitions are often unknown even to Christians), and helpful distinctions between Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions.

    If your interest is limited to a particular topic, a comprehensive index will assist you in navigating through the book.
