Wow-do I have a Christmas gift for you? In the midst of the start of Christmas shopping-we all go through a mental check list of possible gifts. What will this person like? What will that person like? God knows what each of us really need? It’s not a thing-but a person. It’s his Son-Jesus Christ.
I want to share with you two wonderful gift ideas. They are both books. Very unique books about Jesus:
1. A beautiful book by John Ortberg, entitled: “Who is This Man?” From the dark ages to Post-modernity, Jesus is history’s most familiar figure. His impact on the world is immense and not a coincidence. Ortberg is pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, California. This short read of 2o2 pages is an excellent read. I guarantee Ortberg’s thoughts about Jesus will be thoughts you have never read or heard before;
2. Second book is by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola entitled,” Jesus: A Theography.” Virtually every other “Jesus biography” begins with the nativity account in Bethlehem. In this groundbreaking book, Sweet and Viola begin before time, in the Triune God, and tell the complete interconnected story of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation.
These are gifts that no one who is seeking Jesus would ever take back to return! Stay tuned
