In this five-session DVD-based small group bible study, Who Is This Man? John Ortberg reveals how Jesus made an inescapable influence on our world and how you can too.
Jesus is historys 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
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. And how his vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope continues to inspire and challenge humanity today
This DVD is designed for use with the Who Is This Man? Participant Guide (sold separately). When used together, they provide a practical tool that can grow your faith.

rlmodranskiSteubenville, OHAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!August 19, 2012rlmodranskiSteubenville, OHAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Who is this Man" by John Ortberg is full of information and apologetics. It is real information that I can use to help others believe that Jesus Christ is who He says He is. John Ortberg did a great job of pointing out the historical reasons that Jesus and His life have been under so much scrutiny from the time he turned 30 until the current time. He explains why palms waved on the road to Jerusalem were more than just a Sunday afternoon celebration. He shares details about what was going on in Rome as well as Judea when Jesus walked on the earth and how our Savior drastically altered the culture and practices of pagan civilization as well as His own.
This book kept my attention for every word. It was educational as well as enlightning, and confirmed my belief that Jesus is more than most people understand. The evidence for Jesus being the Son of God is overwhelming when we understand that not only did He give up His life for us, He also wasn't afraid to "make waves" to help others meet the creator and learn to live their lives for Him.
I highly recommend this book!
