Product Description

In this new volume in the popular For Today series, Ron Allen provides an exciting introduction to the life of Jesus and an engaging discussion of what Jesus' life means for modern-day believers. Setting Jesus in his ancient context, Allen examines many stories about Jesus' life and shows how these different stories relate to one another to express the core of Jesus' message--a message that, as Allen helpfully shows, is of central importance for believers today.

The For Today series was designed to provide reliable and accessible resources for the study and real life application of important biblical texts, theological documents, and Christian practices. The emphasis of the series is not only on the realization and appreciation of what these subjects have meant in the past, but also on their value in the present--"for today." Thought-provoking questions are included at the end of each chapter, making the books ideal for personal study and group use.

    In the preface of this book, Ronald J. Allen states that "Jesus'

    life can be interpreted in many ways." He challenges us to examine how we describe him and reports what he thinks the Jesus of the first century was like. More than this he challenges us to look at issues today from the perspective of the basic values of the story of Jesus. To him this comes down to evaluating our decisions based on what choice likely will demonstrate more of God's love for persons or people than another choice.

    My study group has enjoyed many of the For Today studies...we cannot figure out how this one got in. We ultimately threw the book in the trash! The author uses this book to go on a tirade to accuse Christians of bashing Jews and states the gospels perpetuate the discrimination of the Jewish people!
