From the video clip...
On the day after Jesus’ death, it looked as if whatever small mark he left on the world would rapidly disappear. Instead, his impact on human history has been unparalleled. You are reminded of him every time you look at a calendar (- dated from the year of his birth), every time you look at a map (- with so many places named after him and his martyred followers down the ages). We name our children after his friends (- Peter, Phoebe, James,) and our dogs after the rulers of his day (- Nero, Caesar).
His teachings applied through the ages fuelled the civil rights movement. Formed the basis of the separation of church and state, elevated the status of women, lead to the development of hospitals and even inspired the founding of the world's top universities. All this from a man who could have been voted least likely to change the world (- never held public office, never commanded an army, amassed a fortune or wrote a book). Anyone who takes the time to try out his teachings and examine his way of life ends up asking themselves in wonderment: 'Who is this man?'
Praise for 'Who Is This Man?' :
"In Who Is This Man? John has written a powerful testament to the impact that Jesus has had on human history, on the human condition, and on our understanding of the obligations of one human being to another."
"Jesus emerges from this book as a complex figure with a disruptive set of teachings — sometimes “cranky” with those who don’t get it, often tough on his followers, and yet compassionate with those in need. At the end, we want to know him even better."
"In Who Is This Man? John Ortberg gives those who believe and those who are perhaps not so certain a compelling reason to seek answers."
