"...crisp and compelling...unabashedly poignant, at times humorous and always hopeful." -- Publishers Weekly

Book Jacket:

We applaud men for doing good things. We enshrine God for doing great things. But what about a man who does God things? One thing is certain. We canít ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God. The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league. The head of the parade? Hardly. No one else shares the street. Who comes close? Humanityís best and brightest fade like dime-store rubies next to him. Dismiss him? We canít. Resist him? Equally difficult. Why would we want to? Donít we need a God-man Savior? A just-God Jesus could make us, but not understand us. A just-man Jesus could love us, but never save us. But a God-man Jesus? Near enough to touch. Strong enough to trust. A next door Savior.
