“Paints a vivid picture of Jesus’ groundbreaking lessons . . . An impressively concise portrayal of Jesus as a moral philosopher [and] social reformer, just as one might study the teachings of the Buddha or the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. . . . Thorough and erudite . . . written in an almost conversationally informal style.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Thoughtful and well researched . . . a welcome perspective on Jesus. . . . Nordstrom has a knack for language. Well-crafted, alluring prose . . . Approachable . . . documents a plethora of Jesus’s lesson topics, including his progressive stances on the power of language, politics, theology, and women’s rights. . . . The book stays on task.” —Foreword Reviews

“An extraordinary read from cover to cover and very highly recommended . . . Informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, inspired and inspiring . . . Will prove to be of immense interest for non-Christian readers . . . An enduringly popular addition to church, seminary, community, and academic library Christian History collections.”
—Midwest Book Review

“Well-written, enjoyable, and informative . . . like a conversation with an intelligent friend . . . Here, we see Jesus not as a god, but as a man who preached love and acceptance. . . . Easy to understand exegesis, commentary, and reflections on Jesus’ public ministry.” —BlueInk
