“Regardless of what anyone may personally think of him or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of western culture for almost twenty centuries.” —Jaroslav Pelikan
Jesus Christ has been the center of history for 2,000 years, and his birth the pivot of our calendar. He is the focus of Scripture: as Luther declared, the entire Scripture deals only with Christ everywhere. He is the heart of mission, the message that countless Christians cross land and sea, continents and cultures, to deliver. In masterly surveys, John Stott looks at the New Testament witness, at the way the church has portrayed Christ down the centuries, at the influence Christ has had on individuals over the last 2,000 years. Finally, turning to the book of Revelation, he asks what Jesus Christ should mean to us today.
Here is the fruit of a lifetime of biblical study, rigorous Christian thought, and devotion to the person of Christ.

This volume is also available in Spanish!
This is a book to treasure, to stretch our minds and to be a helpful resource in years to come. Above all else, it lifts up Jesus Christ, just as John Stott has done in his lifetime of ministry.
