Jesus the Christ is a carefully written, well-documented, comprehensive and well-organized compilation of records of the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, called the Christ. It testifies of Christ as the promised holy Messiah. It is beautifully written with detailed notes and references. With the first thorough study of the book, one only begins to scratch the surface of all that is offered. Its Subject is deserving of a lifetime of diligent, heartfelt study. This is a magnificent historical literary treasure! Nothing is of greater relevance and importance to each of us than coming to know that we have a loving Elder Brother -- Jesus the Christ -- who invites us to accept His supernal gifts of redemption and resurrection. Through this book, Jesus the Christ becomes a well-known, personal Savior and friend. The sweet Spirit of our Lord is felt through reading or listening to the audio book.
