Twenty centuries have come and gone and today the Lord Jesus Christ remains a central figure of the human race. His birth divides our calendars history into two eras—BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini, the Year of our Lord). The first day of every week is set aside in remembrance of him. And our two most important holidays celebrate his birth and death—Christmas and Easter. The symbol of his death, the cross, can be seen on church towers all around the world. His life has been the subject of more songs, books and paintings than any other person or event in history. Thousands of colleges, hospitals, orphanages and other institutions have been founded in honour of him. It is no exaggeration to say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the governments that ever sat, and all the kings that have ever reigned have not left as much of a lasting impression on the course of history as much as this one solitary life.
So who is this man? His name is Jesus and the latest Little Black Book from Scott is all about him. Get your copy for a special price on Sundays. It’s a great little read which doesn’t say everything you could say, but says what you need to know about Jesus.
