Publisher's Description

Jesus was human, like you and me. If the gospel is true, he still is.

Christians worldwide believe that Jesus is God. But this belief wasn’t the starting point for Jesus’ earliest followers. While Jesus’ humanity was a given for the disciples, his divinity was a truth they grew into believing—it was a journey of faith. As Christians today, we are also called into a faith journey—this time, to rediscover Jesus’ humanity.

Yes, we believe that Jesus is God, but do we truly believe that Jesus is human? And if so, how does that transform our own experience of being human?

Through eye-opening yet down-to-earth reflections, Jesus Journey invites you to encounter Jesus again—as if for the first time—by experiencing his breathing, heart-beating, body-and-blood, crying-and-laughing humanity.

Join Bible teacher and storyteller Trent Sheppard as he shines new light on the vibrant humanity of the historical Jesus through an up-close look at Jesus’ relationships with Mary and Joseph, with the God he called Abba, with his closest friends and followers, and how, ultimately, his crucifixion and resurrection finally and forever redefine what we mean by the word God. Come encounter the human who radically transforms our view of God.

Come encounter the God who forever changes what it means to be human.

Editorial Reviews

I found myself nodding, underlining, and muttering “Yes!” on almost every page. Jesus Journey has a vitally important message. Intelligent, relevant, and passionate, Trent Sheppard exposes our dualisms, provokes dead religion, and liberates our deepest humanity. This book has the power to reintroduce you to the one you always longed to know.
In this immersive experience of a book, Jesus’ life leaps right off the page and into our lives with disruption and hope and healing. Jesus Journey reminded me of not only why I follow Jesus but why I love him so.
Here is iconoclasm: recovering the real Jesus out of religious iconography.
Trent Sheppard’s new book, Jesus Journey, is a wonder. It’s an invitation for both Christians and non-Christians to explore the incidents, people, and circumstances of Jesus’ life to understand how they impact our lives today. Anyone interested in a well-grounded exploration of both the historical Jesus and the Christ of faith---for they are one and the same---can’t find a better guide than this book.
Like Paul commended Titus to the church in Corinth and Phoebe to the church in Rome, I commend my friend Trent Sheppard to you. Trent is the real deal. He’s taught multitudes, and his mind “runs deep” with the things of God. His message will inform, inspire, and ignite your walk with Jesus. Read and be blessed!
Read this book and see Jesus from new angles; he lives on its pages. Trent Sheppard brings us into the wonderfully unsettling place of drawing near and seeing Jesus more clearly.
My good friend and kingdom-coconspirator Trent has authority in painting a portrait of Jesus because he’s fought so hard to stay right on his heels. I want to see and know the man I have given my life to following, and Jesus Journey adds a beautiful brushstroke to my portrait of the real, raw, relatable, freckled, passionate, all-powerful King Jesus. I will joyfully never see him the same.
In a time when the church is waking up to our call to image God to the world, this book is a gift. Through brilliant storytelling and without compromising the divinity of Jesus, Trent brings the reader face to face with this unique, compelling, Jewish man from Nazareth. Be prepared to gaze upon Jesus in ways that will change you forever.
Jesus Journey opened the eyes of my heart to see the “Word who became flesh” like never before. It’s such a tragedy that we can become so familiar with Jesus’ story that we miss the majesty and wonder of who he truly is. Jesus Journey took my heart on a journey from familiar to fascinated. This is the kind of book that goes beyond just filling your head with information; it leads your heart into an encounter with the real and living God.
Jesus is and always will be the greatest leader the world has ever seen, and Trent explores the practical, faith-in-action elements of Jesus’ life and humanity that should inspire each of us to go and make an impact in our communities. Jesus is the transformer of lives, and Jesus Journey shows us what it practically means to follow him in a deeper way.
In an age of division within the church and tension with the world, Trent Sheppard draws us back to the compelling personality and beautiful humanity of Jesus. Beyond being a beloved campus minister, Trent Sheppard is a theologian rich in profound godly insight. While reading, I recalled my first love for Christ. After reading, I love him more. A gift to the church and the world.
