A Chance in the World is the unbelievably true story of a wounded and broken boy destined to become a man of resilience, determination, and vision. Through it all, Steve’s story teaches us that no matter how broken our past, no matter how great our misfortunes, we have it in us to create a new beginning and to build a place where love awaits.

  • Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus

  • How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life

In this unabridged audio download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in.

If you could sum up Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus in three words, what would they be?

A worthwhile read.

Any additional comments?

For anyone wanting to learn more about Jesus and about the time he was on earth this book is very informative and interesting. The narrator had an easy listening voice too!
