His Name is Jesus (Publisher: Thomas Nelson)
The life Jesus led, other than what is mentioned in the Bible, isn’t something I’ve thought much about. I never wondered why he didn’t choose to work as a carpenter and stay in the village where he grew up rather than throwing away the security and comfort of his life there in order to fulfill a greater purpose. Not until I read this book.
The thing I like most about His Name is Jesus is the way it makes me wonder about what Jesus did in the periods of his life that we know very little about. It gave me some ideas as to what daily life was like for him, and stressed that Jesus faced the same challenges and questions that we do. The author frequently asks questions of the reader, making us direct our thoughts to our own lives, and how different everything would be if Jesus had chosen to be an ordinary man instead of our Savior.
The quality of the book makes it a lovely gift, and the way it is written ensures that whoever reads it will gain insight into the life of Jesus. It shares the story of Jesus’ life in easy to understand language, and focuses on the hope that faith in Jesus gives to a believer.
