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”?

Should the Gospel be made available only in erudite
style? Or, can the simple power of narrative also serve
the Evangel in the lives of young and old? In his new
book Tell me the Story, Alex MacDonald retells the
ancient tale of Jesus in the contemporary tongue of
narrative account. With delightful turn of phrase and
surprising perspective, we are invited to hear afresh the
storyline of the Gospel message. A faithful preacher
with an eye towards making the Good News intelligible
to everyman, Alex MacDonald warms our hearts with
his fusion of timeless truth through vibrant imagination.
These dozen eyewitness accounts of Bible figures and
their companions will stir your heart to treasure again
the old, old story of Jesus and His love!

W. Duncan Rankin, Senior Minister, Covenant Presbyterian Church Oakridge, Tennessee

"Having heard the chapter on Joanna I can appreciate the living situation from which the skilful telling of these stories has come. They are a practical and helpful reminder that we often fail to capture people's imagination in telling the exciting story the narrative of the New Testament provides. The writer's motivation is that of an earnest communicator of the gospel who commendably tries every helpful approach to help his readers and listeners to understand the greatest good news there is."

Derek Prime, (1931–2020)Author and former pastor of Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh
