"No two people know quite the same things about Jesus or see him in quite the same way," says Calvin Miller in the Introduction to this monumental work. "Some see him as a judge, coming to scourge the nations. Others see him primarily as a lover of children. Scholars tend to see him in scholarly ways. Poets see him more poetically. Preachers see him as a preacher, teachers as a teacher. Carpenters like remembering he was one of them." The Jesus of scripture, Dr. Miller says, "is only finished in the individual hearts of those who believe." In compiling The Book of Jesus, Dr. Miller's goal is to bring together some of the most fascinating, original observations on the life of Jesus Christ, and the result is truly wonderful.
The Book of Jesus contains hundreds of selections drawn from every era of history, presenting a spectrum of contributors from Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dickens, Hemingway, and C. S. Lewis to Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Billy Graham, and Desmond Tutu. This broad, eclectic volume also includes works by contemporary Christian writers such as Max Lucado, Elisabeth Elliot, Charles Colson, and Eugene Peterson, and other poems, songs, and essays, traditional hymns, and verses from the Bible.
The selections in this indispensable book, when taken together, present "the Christ of universal reflection," for the many thousands of people who seek to find out exactly who is this most important man.
