Product Description

Product Description

Two very popular and effective evangelistic tools:

(1) Two Ways to Live: The choice we all face

(2) the Gospel of Luke.

What, we thought, if we combined the two?

That's what The Essential Jesus does. Most of its 80 pages are made up of a fresh and accurate translation of Luke's Gospel. But the text of Luke is preceded by some important background information ('Previously in the Bible') that explains the biblical context and Jewish expectations as Jesus walks on centre stage. (This explanation is based on boxes 1 to 3 of Two Ways to Live.) The text of Luke also includes numerous footnotes, helpfully explaining to the modern reader some of the unfamiliar terms and names that appear from time to time.

After Luke's account of Jesus, a summary of the message is presented using the Two Ways to Live framework, concepts and illustrations, but linking back to the content of Luke.

HASH(0x9d1fc600) out of 5 stars It is very good June 2 2014
By D Runner - Published on Amazon.com

Reading this version of Luke was like reading another translation type of the Bible - maybe like the New Living Translation. I found it helpful in my understanding when the language was in today's vernacular compared to the King James Version.

HASH(0x9d0ff258) out of 5 stars The Gospel of Luke with Background and historical data included. March 24 2015
By Ken Mullins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Gospel of Luke with Background and historical data included. This is written for those who are not familiar with the Bible but would like to read the story of Jesus in modern easy to understand plain English. This reminds me of Eugene Peterson's The Message, but with background and historical information and of course only the Gospel of Luke (vs the whole Bible). Perfect for new Christians and Middle School Students.

Jesus is Lord, the son of God who came to save all human being. This book is good for those who seek to know Jesus and good to read again and again. This is recommended for non believers and believers.
