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.
Scot McKnight is Professor of Religious Studies at North Park University, and the author of numerous books on the New Testament, including the bestselling The Jesus Creed. Philip Law's previous publications include Testament (Continuum), and The Wisdom of Jesus (Lion).
