This book is a little gem rich with quiet wisdom and deep insights, and is beautifully written. This is a book to read slowly and savor long.
--Os Guinness, author of A Free People's Suicide: Sustainable Freedom and the American Future
A book of uncommon power and insight. By providing incisive commentary on the gospel's story of Jesus's humanity, Russ opens wide a window into our own.
--Robert Walter Wall, Paul T. Walls Professor of Scripture and Wesleyan Studies, Seattle Pacific University
I don't know when I have been more pleased with a book on Christian life than I am with this stunningly helpful examination of the humanity of Christ. . . . This is the kind of book that not only deserves, but needs, a wide readership.
--Luder G. Whitlock Jr., Former President, Reformed Theological Seminary
A marvelously surprising book. Surprising because it uncovers an obvious truth we have persistently managed to obscure or ignore. Marvelous because, like all truths, its discovery has the capacity to set us free, free to enjoy the limits of our finitude, and free to marvel, once again, at the full-orbed wonder of the Word-made-flesh. A tour de force.
--Stan D. Gaede, President, Christian College Consortium --Wipf and Stock Publishers
