Imagine what it would have been like to have met Jesus face to face when he lived in the Middle East 2,000 years ago. The Gospels give us vivid accounts of some of the people who did, but wouldn’t it be useful to hear of these life-changing encounters from the individuals themselves? In this fascinating book, Simon Robinson steps into the shoes of some of these characters, and presents a unique view of Jesus from their perspective. We hear how Peter, one of the disciples, struggled after denying that he knew Jesus; how a notorious woman felt as she was challenged when he talked about her shameful past; and many more inside-stories from people who met Jesus—the life changer.
Now, this book is different! One sees the real Jesus through an unusual set of eyes. But if you are intrigued as to whom Jesus is, and what he did, you will enjoy this book. Be careful, though—you may find that you are different after reading it!
Simon Robinson has been in pastoral ministry since 1988 and is currently the pastor of Walton Evangelical Church, Chesterfield. He is the author of Improving Your Quiet Time, and Growing for God and is married to Hazel, with two sons, Andrew and Matthew.
