About-

A famous person is missing! The human Jesus of Nazareth is missing from the creeds of the church, missing from most of the New Testament, and hidden within the four New Testament gospels. It will take an exciting piece of detective work to find him, and upon finding him there will be a big surprise. He may not turn out to be the person the reader expects to find. Finding Jesus of Nazareth can transform churches, communities, and individuals in unexpected ways.
Many people today are being drawn to the original message of Jesus, apart from the image of Jesus proclaimed by the traditional church. There is a hunger for the values Jesus proclaimed and practiced. This book will help everyone, religious or not, discover the human Jesus and his original vision of new communities of equity, social justice, and shared resources, as well as discover what that means in our modern world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"What a marvelous adventure for any reader who is willing to cast aside preconceptions and look anew at Jesus of Nazareth. With an engaging style, Earle Rabb draws us into the historical setting of first century Galilee and gives us a moving portrait of a village Rabbi who preached a gospel of love, compassion, and communal sharing that challenges us to live different lives in the twenty-first century."
