'Living Jesus vividly conveys how opening our hearts to Christ can release the transformative power of love...into our broken and needy world.' Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
Right Reverend John Pritchard the Bishop of Oxford's latest work is an exploration of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this book Pritchard challenges us to ponder the life and the meaning of Jesus and aims to show him as a multi-dimensional and fascinating man worthy of anyone's attention.
Christ has affected the world like no other figure in human history. His teachings have changed culture, the Church, and most importantly they have changed lives. He is the centre point of history and an inspiration for some of the greatest human endeavours and artistic achievements ever known.
This book is as much for long-time followers of Jesus as it is for people just looking to find out more. In Living Jesus, Pritchard tells the story of Jesus and his legacy in a way that will move us. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry but most of all it will inspire.
Mark Russell, Chief Executive of The Church Army describes the work as 'An inspirational book written by a man who loves Jesus and loves people.'
