As the leading historical figure of the last 2,000 years, I felt that Jesus’ personal story was a story that should reach the public, which has a hunger for it now–and a need for it– as at no other time in our national history,” said Elliott. “And with that goal in mind, I kept after him until he agreed to sit for a long series of wide-ranging interviews that covered every detail of his early life, his family, the “hidden years,” his well-known ministry, and finally, the Passion that has so fascinated mankind for thousands of years. Is Jesus the Messiah? Yes. Is he a son of the Lord God? Yes. Did he die for our sins? Yes, according to the Jewish prophets. But he also lived a very human life, full of all the human happiness, tragedy, pain, joy, and suffering familiar to all of us.”

“The first part of the book is like having your father or uncle sitting in your living room talking about his life. It’s not a comedy, but at the same time he might occasionally say something that strikes you funny. We learn more about growing up in an obscure province of the Roman Empire than we ever have before.

” The middle of the book is devoted to his personal observation of his ministry as provided in the Gospels. Here we see yet again the wonderful teachings that have survived the centuries.

“The last part of the book deals with the Passion and gives it a sense of personal immediacy that we have never encountered before in any other writing on the subject. Jesus’ life is contained in history and yet contains it.”

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Many books have been published about the life of Christ but by far I can say that this is the best book ever written. It is not just educational but it is entertaining as well.

*******

Whether you believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God or not, this book gives a good look at the man who gave rise to one of the major religions of our day. The author put good research into what is known about Jesus, then extrapolated out what the rest of his life might have been like. Of course, there is some poetic license with personal details of Jesus’ life, but nothing outrageous or scandalous. This is a good fictional read about the life of a major person of history.

*******

Couldn’t Put It Down! Fascinating! Who would have thought that this old, familiar story which everybody knows could be told again in such a gripping, evocative way? And yet be so faithful to the literal Gospels?

*******

A fascinating portrayal of the human side of Jesus. A great exploration into all aspects of his humanity. Well written, intensely researched, easy narrative to read and entirely thought provoking.

*******

This is one book which I can read not just for the second time and many more times and still not get tired of it. It helped me know my Savior even better and also answered many of my unanswered questions. I gave this book to even my non-Christian friends to read. In fact I got this book as a present from a friend now I make it a point to give this to people who did not yet read it now that the Christmas season has began.
