Product Description

The story of Jesus is the most remarkable ever told. It's an exciting adventure, a tender love story, and a drama full of danger, betrayal, and the ultimate sacrifice. But sometimes the genealogies, the confusing repetition, and the varying order of events in the Gospels can distract readers from this powerful narrative. Or maybe you've heard the story so many times that it has lost its impact.

Here, Dr. William Marty presents the complete narrative of Jesus in an easy-to-read, chronological account. It's a fascinating retelling of everything from his birth to his ascension--as well as what happened in the church after he left. The Jesus Story is perfect if you want to get to know Jesus better or recapture the amazement of hearing his story for the first time.

    This book is an easy read, not really in depth, but it is really interesting to read the New Testament in chronological order. Because it is not an in-depth book, I don't think this would be a great read for a mature Christian unless they just wanted to read a simple overview of the New Testament, but I think that a new believer could benefit from reading it because of its simplicity. Because this book uses simple language it would be an easy overview of the New Testament for someone new to the Bible or maybe to read to a younger child.

    Reading the Bible is an important part of being a believer and I don't want to imply that you should read this instead of the Bible. You should definitely read the Bible, and this book could be interesting for you to read on the side.

    Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for sending me a free copy of The Jesus Story in exchange for my honest review.

    The Jesus Story by Dr. William H. Marty

    I have been trying to remove a lot of extraneous "worldly" entertainments from my life and focus on Jesus. Some people call this a Jesus Fast. I can't say that I have been 100% successful but, it has been a big help. It is books like The Jesus Story that has helped me in my fast. I have been craving books that will not only translate the Story of Jesus' life into everyday language but I'm the kind of person who wants those details about what His everyday life could have been like. I want to know how food was prepared, how the towns were laid out, what type of fabric they made their clothing out of and how they made it and on and on. While this book does not go into that type of depth it gave me a glimpse of the story in chronological order. As I read there were many times I wished for more of Dr. Marty's insights but it did make me go and read more about it in the Bible. All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an over view of Jesus.

    This book was provided to me free from Bethany House to review. I was in no way paid for the review though I feel enriched by having read the book.

    I think every new Christian needs to have a copy of this book, because there is no substitution for the grace that flows from understanding Jesus. how can we be friends without if we don't understand them? I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for writing a review. The review is not a good one because of that, its good because I believe in the book. The work places Jesus time with us in chronological order from beginning to resurrection and follows up with the life and formation of the early church from Paul's time. I really enjoyed the summation at the end of section because it drives home what the section was saying. I have been a Christian all my life, and have read the Bible many times but I really enjoyed this book because it is a remarkably well written celebratory account of Jesus and what He has done for us and what that means in terms of our Divine nature and our ability to join Him. The story is very clear and well written. As I stated above, I think every new Christian needs a copy and I think everyone who isn't a Christian needs a copy because it could help them to understand the gospel and Jesus well enough to want to join outers in the walk of faith!!

    The Jesus Story - Everything That Happens in the New Testament in Plain English is just what it says it is.

    This is simply the story of the Gospel of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, written out in order from birth to death to resurrection, and followed by the growth of the early church in Acts and Paul's ministry.

    The value in this book for me, one who is familiar with the New Testament and the life of Jesus, is that it aligns the stories in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John into a narrated timeline. The order that this books brings also brings clarity. That is the gift that Dr. Marty shares with us.

    Written as a factual narrative, not a fictionalized story, this is a valuable book to someone who wishes to understand the overview of Jesus' life and ministry. It gives me a "Just the facts, Ma'am" feeling to read it. It will not replace reading the Bible, but it will aid comprehension. Each chapter contains a summary at the end which sums things up nicely.

    Well done, Dr. Marty.

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but whatever it was I sure didn't get it. This book was basically Cliffs Notes, like the ones you read in high school to get the absolute basic understanding of a book, but without really seeing the book for its true worth. Yeah its what we have.

    I liked how it combined the Gospels, but it was choppy. It just seemed to gloss over every miracle and every important thing Jesus said. It took the beauty out of it.

    I was hoping this would be a good book to give a non believer but I am not sure I would. I don't see how this book was any more helpful than just reading the Message Bible. Which is sad because I was hoping this would be a good source for non believers.

    I received this book from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
