Overview

Jesus: The Story You Thought You Knew by Deacon Keith Strohm

Are you restless and looking for more out of life? Do you desire a deeper experience of God's love and mercy? Have you been searching for freedom, peace, fulfillment, and joy? You can find all of these things in the story of Jesus Christ. But be aware-it's nothing like you're expecting. In Jesus: The Story You Thought You Knew, Deacon Keith Strohm invites you not just to read about Jesus, but to have a transformative encounter with him. This isn't a book of theology, or an abstract story with little impact on your real life. It is the story that can and will transform you if you're open to it. In these pages, you will discover who you truly are and what you were created for. You will meet Jesus, not simply as an historical figure, but as our living and present Savior and friend. Encounter-again, or for the first time-Jesus Christ, who lives … and changes lives.
