    Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental.

    Would you try another book from John Ortberg and/or Arthur Morey?

    I had the opportunity to hear the author, John Ortberg, teach from this book at the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership summit in August 2012. John was so excited about the lesson that he got the entire audience excited about learning more about the impact Jesus had on our society.

    The day after John spoke at the conference, I purchased this audio book and began listening to it with excitement. Well...not only was the person reading not John Ortberg, the narrator was not at all excited about the subject. What's ironic is that John Ortberg said he wrote this book so that people would get excited about who Jesus is and the narrator is NOT excited. LOL

    I really wish I had read the description before I purchased this audio book. I recommend downloading video or audio of the author teaching from this book or just reading it instead.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Who Is This Man??

    Jesus' impact on social justice in society


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did not seem excited about the subject matter. One of the reasons I purchased this audio book was the author's enthusiasm for the subject. The standard for non-fiction audio books seems to be a very bland, monotone delivery and in this case it detracted from the book.


    Could you see Who Is This Man? being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. A documentary might work.


    Any additional comments?

    Re-narrate this book with John Ortberg.
