Publisher's Description

Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name.

He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. 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 . . .you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons, maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life. He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books.

His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history by starting in a humble place, in a spirit of love and acceptance, and allowing each person space to respond.

His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity. His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.

    Everyone should read this book to be reminded of the world wide impact Jesus has had when His followers act as true followers. I am grateful for all that has happened in the name of that love.

    This book provides a biblical worldview of the impact of Jesus over the past 2000 years. It's a great tool for understanding the true impact of the "Hope of Nations". Good historical references.

    I am always on the lookout for resources that hone my skills in sharing what I believe and why, or that I can recommend or gift to non-believers that address their questions or their curiosity about Jesus. This is a book that I believe is useful for both purposes. I found it fascinating in terms of the myriad ways in which Jesus' teachings and practices have impacted our society, our culture, how we interact with others, and how we live. I found it reassuring that Jesus has so permeated our world that no amount of governmental legislation could fully eradicate his influence in our lives.

    Who is this man? Ortberg creates a clever and thoughtful series of answers to "who" is the man Jesus and how he changed the world. It is a solid resource book for stories, ideas, inspiration and challenge. Especially helpful is Ortberg's tone--it is not polemical or condescending, but simple, direct and gracious.

    I love the theme and premises of the book and the videos; but, the lesson plan is geared primarily to the video and doesn't seem to tie in the book real well. Thinking of breaking each of 4 lessons into three parts, reading 1-2 chapters per week and watching a video every third week for a 12-week course. As I said, the book won't necessarily follow or tie in well though.
