Jesus is history's most familiar figure. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the man who won't go away And yet ... He did not brashly defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge superior in all future books. He did not start by telling his disciples, 'Here are proofs of my divinity; affirm them and I'll accept you. Who Is This Man? illustrates how Jesus' influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the evolution of art, science, government, medicine, and education.
