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.

I am a big fan of Dr. William Marty. Through the pages of this vivid storybook, we get to find out why he's been a favorite teacher among Bible students for decades. He is a true man of God and sees Scripture with such heart that you can feel its pulse on every page.
Dr. Marty's mastery of the Bible, honed through decades of teaching its story, has produced a valuable work. May it compel people to a profound study of God's word.
