Fosdick takes a broad-view look at the life of Jesus, and in doing so, examines the characteristics Jesus possessed as a man here on earth. This isn't a "HOW TO" or "SELF HELP" manual like most Christian growth books out there today. Rather, it just looks at Christ and asks how we measure up. It doesn't sound like earth-shattering stuff, but Fosdick digs deep and really brings it home several times throughout the book. Some of it will blow your mind. The entire thing is scripture based. Whoever reads it will, no doubt, come out of it with a much clearer, deeper perspective on the person and Diety of Jesus Christ. You won't be wasting your time on this book.
