For nearly twenty centuries, Jesus Christ has been the dominant figure in the history of Western culture. But who was Jesus of Nazareth? Was he God, Son of God, Son of Mary, a prophet of God or a mythical figure that never existed? As followers of Christ, how do we comprehend the reality of his mission and message?

This audiobook presents an objective and analytical examination of the life of Jesus based on revealed scriptures and supported by references from major Western scholarly texts. It offers a precise, yet scholarly and comprehensive analysis of the person, mission and message of Jesus Christ.

Coming from a Christian background and holding a PhD in Theology from Saint David’s College (University of Wales), the author is well-placed to guide the sincere Christian through a process of questioning, critical thinking and drawing logical conclusions based on established facts.
