"It is an impressive fact of history that Jesus of Nazareth has touched the lives of millions of his fellow humans. And the beat goes on. Two thousand years after his life was lived in Galilee, he continues to draw attention to his teaching and to his life and death. Th e followers of Jesus are split into several diverse camps. And there are also those who think that his story is fi ction. It is clear that diff ering perspectives are at work. Th ere is only one Jesus but there are many takes on the picture of Jesus. To get to Jesus requires that we recognize the various lenses through which we view his story. John Hoad has been a student of the life of Jesus for over 50 years. In this book he examines some of those perspectives and shares his own perspective and refl ections on how we may make contact with Jesus. Th ere was a then, and there is a now. Jesus was there, we are here. How do we translate the Jesus of then and there to the Jesus of here and now? John Hoad shares some basic answers and also makes some radical suggestions. But all the way through his eyes are fi xed on the human Jesus and what following him may mean to us all. Jesus said, Come to me. Jesus said, Follow me. Th ese are the ongoing qualifi cations of life lived within the orbit of Jesus of Nazareth. Th is book aims to promote and support that commitment to live a life guided, inspired, and empowered by Jesus. "
