Description

Jesus' teachings have reached across two millenia, inspiring, informing, and uplifting people from all walks of life.  In this elegant little volume, a noted religious publisher and biblical student has collected Jesus' key messenges, culled from the Gospels.  Organized thematically, Jesus' words speak directly to contemporary lives and convey a man unlike any other man whose life contains a message for all.  Engaging and nondoctrinal commentary throughout places the sayings in their historical context and drawn to this simple and beautiful rendering of Jesus' unique--an, even today, unconventional--message for the heart.
