The best little booklet ever, to explain Who Jesus is, what He did and how to respond to Him.
I have very succesfully given out this booklet in Dutch in the Netherlands many times.
It gets you very excited when you read it. Very well written with a lot of funny drawings in.
I would say try it out, for this price,....
you cannot loose a lot...., you can only gain a lot!

The little red book full of answers that any younster can associate with. Easy to understand and answers most of the 'expected' questions from the youngsters. Dont be deceived by 'how thin' the booklet is, it's a pleasure to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars A misleading and sinister book 24 Mar 2011
"Why Jesus?" is, for any decent critic, a bit of an easy target. For anyone who can scratch beneath the surface it is probably the best advertisement for atheism one could possibly imagine, laughable in fact. And yet...and yet. For its target audience of those desperate for meaning, the fearful, the guilty, addicts, and genuine well-meaning people who have simply been told to read it by their vicar, or picked it up at church, "Why jesus?" might just be an effective conversion tool for evangelical Christianity. I presume that this is what convinces priests, pastors and vicars that such material is to be tolerated. In its deceptively authoritative style; in displaying complete certainty over genuinely deep and difficult issues; in the way that it touches on arguments and evidence in a totally one-sided way; in the way that it gives the illusion of reason when it uses nothing of the kind; in the way that it generates fear, and then promises to take it away in exchange for your trust and belief; in the way that it deliberately avoids genuine issues of moral and societal concern about Christinaity and religion in general, "Why Jesus?" is probably, pound-for-pound one of the most misleading and darkly sinister books I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Book on Jesus 4 Feb 2014
By Dana Peterson - Published on Amazon.com

This book is an excellent guide to understanding Jesus of the Christian faith. I found the book while watching prayer videos on YouTube (search for Sandy Millar - Prayer Ministry Training). It is a short, but powerful book. Mr. Gumbel is a teacher of a program called The Alpha Course. YouTube contains a lot of videos in the Alpha course series and it is "a basic introduction to Christianity supported by churches of many Christian traditions." I highly recommend this book for anyone desiring to know more about Jesus.
