It's the bestselling book ever. It's been translated into more than 2,000 languages. It's changed people's lives around the world. No, it's not Thin Thighs in 30 Days . . . it's the Bible Yet the Bible remains about as well-understood to many people as your typical software license agreement--and about as exciting. That's too bad, because the Bible is exciting, and it doesn't have to be a mystery.Whether you're new to the Bible and think the book of Job is a guide to finding the perfect career, or your rusty Bible knowledge needs a spit-and-polish, or you just want a fresh look at the book you've read so many times, this is the book for you.

We've sanitised him with pious jargon, framed him in stained glass, and reduced him to a religious puppet who floats through biblical landscapes dispensing Christian cliches and nice advice. It's time for a fresh look at the man this book describes as "a square peg in a society of round holes." Whether you're new to Jesus or just want to rediscover him with fresh eyes, this is the book for you. No dry theological treatise, it's written in an engaging, sometimes even humorous, style. In short, readable chapters, you'll get a tour of important background info and fascinating history that will bring to life the era in which Jesus lived. Then you'll read about his birth, his adult ministry and teaching, and the crucial last week of his life on earth. You'll catch a glimpse of the impact and excitement as news of Jesus spread around the world. And finally, you'll be inspired to think about what Jesus means for us today.
