This is an entirely fresh and original book about Jesus, the Jesus of devotion, the Jesus within.Here are 50 images of Jesus, each a chapter of the book. There is a need to get away from cliches and see what Jesus really means for people today. After a brief account of Jesus and his times, the author introduces the book and how to read it. Some of the pictures of Jesus are surprising--Jesus the drop out, the vagabond, the one who refuses power, the family therapist and the exorcist.Grnn has a rare gift of simple communication, of bringing Jesus alive to modern men and women.The style is simple and direct and psychologically in tune with our times.
