Drawing on the words of all four biblical Gospels, this is the story of the life and words of the most influential spiritual teacher the world has known. For two thousand years, the figure of Jesus has been the most powerful and pervasive influence on Western culture - not only in religion and ethics, but also in politics, literature, music and the visual arts. Find out why by reading "The Story of the Christ", an account of the acts and words of Jesus derived entirely from the four biblical Gospels and brought together here to form one continuous and compelling narrative. "The Story" is introduced by world-renowned expert on Jesus and the Gospels, Scot McKnight. He invites you to think about what you might say if you suddenly encountered the historical Jesus and were asked to describe him.
"'The Bible is the greatest book ever written, for it narrates the greatest story ever told... This helpful abridgement presents the central storyline of the Gospels in a straightforward, story-like manner. Read The Story of the Christ and catch a glimpse of the power of the Bible.' Stanley J. Grenz, Carey Theological College, Vancouver 'The Story of the Christ deserves to become an indispensable resource for all who want to encourage biblical literacy, both within and without the church. The reader-friendly format...will help many rediscover the greatest book ever written.' Dale C. Allison, Jr., Pittsburgh Theological Seminary 'Here is a rich selection drawn from the actual wording of the Revised English Bible and printed continuously without the distractions of verse divisions so that the reader may savour the main story-line and fundamental teaching.' I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen 'This excellent book traces the basic narrative story of the Gospels... Read it, and you will have a treasure for a lifetime!' Ronald E. Clements, King's College, London"
