Here are fifty pictures (or images) of Jesus, each being a chapter of the book. We need to get away from cliches and see what Jesus really means for people today. After a brief account of Jesus and his times, the author introduces the book and how to read it. Some of the pictures of Jesus are surprising- Jesus the drop out, the vagabond, the one who refuses power,the family therapist and the exorcist.
Gruen has a rare gift of simple communication, of bringing Jesus alive to modern men and women.
This was a gift which Henri Nouwen also had and the publishers are expecting to command similar sales.
The style is simple and direct and psychologically in tune with our times.
