On the day after Jesus' death, it looked like whatever small mark he left on the world would rapidly disappear. Instead, his impact on human history is unparalleled. In characteristic Ortberg style, readers of Who Is This Man will discover that while Jesus is history's most familiar figure, he is a man often misunderstood and undeniably mysterious. He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books. His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history by starting in a humble place, in a spirit of love and acceptance, and allowing each person space to respond. On the eve of his crucifixion it seemed like Jesus' influence on the world had ended. On the contrary, it had just begun. In Who Is This Man, Ortberg reveals how Jesus has impacted civilization and individual human hearts, changing history - and reader's lives - forever.
