From the internationally bestselling author of No god but God comes a fascinating, provocative, and meticulously researched biography that challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth. Sifting through centuries of mythmaking, Reza Aslan sheds new light on one of history's most influential and enigmatic characters by examining Jesus through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived: first-century Palestine, an age awash in apocalyptic fervor.
"Palastinian Politics 4 B.C.E. - 70 C.E."
What if everything the Gospels say about Jesus of Nazareth - his words, his deeds, his plans - turned out to be true? Searching for Jesus changes "what if?" to "what is", debunking the debunkers and showing how the latest scholarship supports orthodox Christian belief.
"Wonderful conclusion that Jesus is the son of God"
In 2007, Joseph Ratzinger published his first book as Pope Benedict XVI in order “to make known the figure and message of Jesus”.

"Good food for thought"

Follow Me is a captivating narrative of the life of Mary, Joseph, and their first born, Jesus. It follows Him through His childhood and then through His ministry. You will feel what the apostles must have felt as they witnessed the miracles of Jesus: His response of comfort to the weary and downtrodden, His healing of the ill and physically handicapped, His peace when attacked by the bitterness of antagonists, His forgiveness for those who railed against Him and nailed Him to the cross.
Who was Jesus of Nazareth? Many admire his spiritual teachings; some go further and claim him as the messiah, while a few deny he ever existed at all. But everyone has an opinion about this obscure preacher who lived his brief life in one of the less significant regions of the Roman Empire; and who, in being crucified, died the traditional death for criminals and trouble-makers. Jesus lived in turbulent times. Under Roman rule, Judea was a hotbed of nationalist, political and religious interests, all vying for power.

Fr. Virgilio Elizondo makes clear that the catechetical core of the Church is knowing, living, remembering, proclaiming, and celebrating Jesus of Nazareth, who becomes alive in each one of us as our Savior.

In Did Jesus Exist? historian and Bible expert Bart Ehrman confronts these questions, vigorously defends the historicity of Jesus, and provides a compelling portrait of the man from Nazareth.
The town of Nazareth, located in Galilee in northern Israel, is a bustling settlement of over 60,000 people today.
