God Named Josh (Hardcover)
NOT ON OUR SHELVES- available for order, usually ships in 1-5 days
Again and again, Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do you say I am?" It is a question that still demands an answer from each of us today. With deft, insightful, and humorous strokes, award-winning biographer Jared Brock weaves archaeology, biology, psychology, history, and theology to create a portrait of Jesus we've never seen before.
Here is a book about all the things we don't think about when we think about Christ: The child refugee who needed his diaper changed. The teenager with acne. The "carpenter" who actually probably worked with stone. The adult who walked at least 21,525 miles during his lifetime; ate bread, fish, and figs; but never tasted corn, tomatoes, or potatoes. The itinerant rabbi who was brutally murdered by a Jewish mafia family.
More than just a fascinating biography, A God Named Josh seeks to illuminate our Lord from new perspectives that draw you closer to him.
