Editorial Reviews

Review

Laferton simply and attractively walks through Luke's Gospel and in a simple, interesting and relevant way speaks into our culture, which increasingly thinks it's OK for the individual to invent their own view of Jesus. This is a book worth anyone s time. I loved reading it, and I'd love my friends to read it. --Rico Tice, Evangelist and founder of Christianity Explored

In this clearly written volume, Carl provides a succinct and sincere presentation of the gospel for those willing to challenge their own presuppositions about Jesus. Here is a reliable guide to discovering that the Original Jesus is far more powerful, far more radical, and far more gracious than we have ever allowed him to be. --Stephen T. Um, senior minister, Citylife Presbyterian Church, Boston, MA; president, Center for Gospel Culture; author, Why Cities Matter

Brilliant. Quick, easy, and to the point, Original Jesus unmasks the frauds and presents the real thing. --Josh Moody, Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Carl Laferton does something many other authors have not been able to do in telling the story of Christ to new/non-believers. He narrates a biblical story while maintaining biblical accuracy, and uses scripture in a way that is appropriate and not jammed in for the sake of use.

After reading this, I purchased a bulk of these books to hand out to new people coming to our church. As a pastor, my desire is to help new people grow after they leave our church, and Original Jesus will definitely do that.

Carl Laferton does a super job in sharing a clear overview of the truth about Jesus. Humorous without being silly, this little book shoots straight . . . to the heart of the gospel! This would make a great gift to unbelieving or skeptical friends. Accessible yet profound.
