This is far more than just a work on the life of Christ. Jesus, the One and Only is a romance, and you are invited to become part of it. As He has done in the past, God will use Beth's words to woo you into falling in love with Jesus of Nazareth.
Come to know Christ personally. Watch and listen as He breaks up a funeral by raising the dead, confronts conniving religious leaders of His day, teaches on a Galilean hillside, or walks on the waves and calms the storm. Like a ragtag band of followers nearly 2,000 years ago, you will not be the same.

"Listeners will hear the story of the historical Jesus - the extraordinary Jewish mystic who 2,000 years ago taught and performed miracles in Israel - rather than the view of Jesus sanitized by the all-male King James scholars. Read with informed maturity, this is a story that will enlighten, inform - and inspire." (AudioFile)
I am a Christian wife and mother. I write two blogs. My somewhat theological blog is called "Just Another Clay Pot," and my Fiction/Poetry blog is called "Weightiness and Whimsy."
(This review covers both the Kindle edition and the Audible audiobook.)
Though I'm not a rabid consumer of Beth Moore's work, I am never sorry to spend time in it. Her emotionality is sometimes a little over-the-top for my tastes, but I don't mind too much because it's sincere, AND because she is so theologically sound. And sometimes I even choke up a bit with her.
She loves the Lord, she loves His word, and she unpacks it well. I believe that this study came at a good time in my own life, and I found it enriching. I believe I do love Jesus even more for having read it.
My only concern toward the beginning was when she encouraged the reader, at some length, to imagine Jesus' physical appearance. It was well-intended, but it could easily cause people with a certain weakness to violate the spirit of the Second Commandment. Fortunately, she didn't continue to emphasize that activity.
As for the narration, I thought it quite good. It seemed to get better and better as it went along, too. Beth's emotionality would be easy to under- or over-do, but I believe the narrator got it just right.
I love, LOVE, loVE this book. I feel as though I have WALKED with Jesus through the book and understand so much more. I will buy the print copy and read again and again and probably listen to the audio version over and over. If you do not purchase this book, you have no idea what you are missing.
Beth Moore will take you on exciting journey through the gospels at Jesus life. at first the length of this book made me hesitate, but it went by so fast. enjoy the Journey yourself.
One of the best
Step by step learning more about Jesus
Great book. It really helped the study stick, as I was taking the Bible study while listening as well!
