Description

Recent developments have blurred the view of Jesus for ordinary people. The popular imagination has been captured by conspiracy theories propounded by highly-charged accounts loosely connected to gnostic writings including The Da Vinci Code. In eleven chapters - which cover the historical value of the New Testament, Jesus' birth and family, his teachings, miracles, death, resurrection and subsequent appearances - John Dickson clears away the mists of speculation and fantasy, revealing the founder of Christianity in sharp focus. Finally he also considers the real significance of Jesus for the 21st century. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with fine art reproductions and photographs of the places Jesus knew.show more
