5.0 out of 5 stars
"If there were six stars, I would give this book a six."
Format: Kindle Edition
“Jesus Christ His Life and Mine: The Story of Jesus Christ and How it Applies to Us in the Twitter Era” by author Christian Bohlen, is an important, caring piece of informative literature. Whether you have been a born-again believer for many years or have no interest in becoming a follower of Christ, this book will guide you through every stage of what I believe is the greatest life ever lived.
Bohlen takes the reader all the way from the prophecy of the Messiah to Christ’s birth in Bethlehem, to His youth, His ministry, and His death and resurrection.
I have been a Christian for over fifty years, have gone to church and read the Bible my entire life, and love The Lord and His word. With all of this, I need to say that this book by Christian Bohlen is just an amazing summary of Christ’s life. It is not preachy in the least but instead allows the reader to glide through biblical events with ease. It presents Jesus as he was, a man, and God, and it presents His life in the time period in which it was lived. It also shows how important that life is to those living in our modern world.
I loved this book and will read it over and over and share it with family and friends. I teach Bible in a Christian high school and cannot think of a more timely book to present to my students, as a means for them to understand how relevant our Savior’s life is to their generation, and every generation.

About the Author
Do you prefer the formal version? Or the “who is this guy, really” version? Just in case, I’ve provided both. The Formal Version R. Christian Bohlen earned a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and M.S. in Communications (Instructional Design and Organizational Learning) from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and completed partial Ph.D. studies at Capella University in the Leadership in Online Learning program. He also holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. He’s enjoyed a successful career in both education and corporate training, resulting in prestigious personal and team awards including a Brandon Hall Silver Award (2013) and the ISPI Outstanding Human Performance Intervention Award (2015). Christian has been active in his faith throughout most of his life, serving in his church family and witnessing of Christ to many. He speaks regularly at multiple congregations throughout central PA and oversees a prison ministry program serving over 20 prisons. He’s also an active member of Lions International, the largest service organization in the world, and recently served as president of his local Lions club. His interest in writing developed as he looked for simple resources to help youth understand the Bible and find Christ. Unable to find brief, plain-English materials about the life of Jesus, he decided to begin writing and ultimately blogging. Who Is this Guy, Really? Like me, your life probably wasn’t a straight line toward God. You have burdens and complexities that nobody else sees. I’ve been around many people with severe mental and emotional health conditions—including a bit of my own—but a lot of it in my closest family and friends. I also grew up feeling a little weird because my parents were from the Netherlands. To my friends, we ate strange food, my parents talked funny, and we were very religious. We didn’t act like the people around us. I felt disoriented and conspicuously out of place. I’ve also crossed paths with drug and alcohol addiction—including an intense period of my own—and many efforts to help others. My 12 years working at a drug and alcohol rehab for juveniles was a life-changing experience for me. “Help your brother’s boat across, and see! Your own has reached the shore.” This Hindu proverb was fulfilled for me. As a child, I tasted of the goodness of Christ. It was real and satisfying and precious. Over time, I lost touch with Christ and ended up in a confused, crisis of faith. The way I found Christ again was unforgettable, which you can read about here. I also have a wonderful wife. We were unable to have children, which was a tortuous hardship for her. Without her great sense of humor and loving ways, I wouldn’t be who I am today. She is a light to me and others. And of course, what’s life without great doggies? It’s Hard Stuff but It’s All Great Stuff. You’ve had a hard road too, I’m sure. I want you to know that I pray to understand you, dear reader, and what I can do to be worthwhile. That’s why I love to interview people and share their experiences. We’re all in the midst of God’s personalized tutoring plan. The hard stuff becomes great stuff. God sees to that if we’ll simply respond to his loving tugs. I thank God in heaven that I learned to believe in Christ and receive his “grace packets” along my way to keep me spiritually alive and ultimately thriving.
