In The Everything Jesus Book, you'll learn all about the charismatic Jewish carpenter who captured the hearts, minds, and souls of a small group of disciples some two thousand years ago, and inspired the growth of today's largest, and arguably most influential, religion. Interest in Jesus is bigger than ever. More than a third of the people on this planet call themselves Christians, and that number continues to grow by some 69,000 people every 24 hours. But what do we really know about the man who started it all? The Everything Jesus Book explores the scriptural and Gnostic accounts of his life and deeds, along with his influence on civilization over the last 2000 years.
