Description

Alex retells these eye–witness stories of Jesus. These people tell their stories as eye witnesses of those who were actually there. They are:

Mary, mother of Jesus, Gaius Maximus, centurion, Joanna’s story of John The Baptist, woman at the well, Simon the Pharisee, Gadarene Demoniac, Jairus, Simon Peter, Rich ruler, Bartimaeus & Zacchaeus, John and Marcellus a Roman officer.

Using Biblical, contemporary and background data, Alex MacDonald skilfully tells the stories of those who were with Jesus at key points in his life.

It unfolds as if you were on the spot looking on. The stories are based on factual evidence of what really happened. This book will capture your imagination causing you to ask “What would my reaction have been if I had been there?” or “Was this really what happened”?

Endorsements

"The author, minister of Buccleuch and Greyfriars Free Church in Edinburgh and a former Editor of the Free Church Monthly Record, has skilfully brought together a collection of first-person narratives written through the eyes of those who knew Jesus. Using biblical references and other background resources, MacDonald offers responses to the question: 'do you know Jesus' through the eyes of those who knew him, from his mother Mary, to Simon Peter, the Apostle John and Zacchaeus, the tax collector. Written in a lively and original style, each chapter can be enjoyed individually or as part of a wider study of the lives of those who knew Jesus.

"Narrative preaching is an extremely difficult art to
master, because imagination has to be used as a tool
to convey truth and make the reader want to grasp it,but must never take over itself. Alex MacDonald has
managed here to present us with a series of stories that
superbly manage to retell well known historical facts
in a way that magically take us to the lands and times
in which they actually happened. A book for young
and old, for seasoned preachers and truth-seekers,
and ultimately for anyone who simply likes stories well
told."
