Good teacher...or intolerant judge...or children's story...Who is Jesus?

This is a book about Original Jesus—the one who actually lived in human history. The one who often gets hidden behind all the other versions of Jesus we're offered. The Jesus who is controversial, compassionate, sometimes uncomfortable, often unpredictable... and completely real.

This short, lively book explains why the original Jesus really matters to you—how his life can transform your world, your hopes and your future.

Short, funny, friendly and easy–to–read, Original Jesus looks at seven episodes in Jesus' life from the Gospel of Luke, and explains the central gospel message. Perfect for giving away to unbelieving family and friends, whatever their view of Jesus, and for handing out at church outreach events.

Carl Laferton is Senior Editor at The Good Book Co., and author of Real Men, Good Question and the Promises Kept Good Book Guide. He has a degree in History from Oxford University. Before joining TGBC, he worked as a journalist, a teacher, and pastored a congregation in Hull. Carl is married to Lizzie and they have a young son, Benjamin.
