A carpenter, an obscure village, three short years: yet today, 2000 years later, his message still grips the hearts of millions in love, or else it makes them ﬁght ﬁercely against it. Why? This book seeks to give an answer by sketching the life of Christ. The author’s task is indeed ambitious, and he allows the events of those three years in the life of Jesus to speak for themselves — plainly, honestly, challengingly. The enriching, life-giving, personal Jesus walks through these pages. And walks into the life of the reader. It is therefore a book for the sincere, simple pilgrim searching for God.
