Jesus’ impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn’t connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history’s most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the Man who won’t go away. And yet…you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons, maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life. He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books. His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history by starting in a humble place, in a spirit of love and acceptance, and allowing each person space to respond. His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity. His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.

    " Brilliant as usual from John Ortberg -- my favorite Christian author and speaker. The book's title describes it perfectly: the impact of the inescapable Jesus. Read and see. "

    " Great look at the life of Jesus and the impact He has made on this world in so many ways we haven't thought of before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Steve | 1/26/2014

    " Even though a life-long Christian, I failed to grasp what John Ortberg so eloquently wrote. Powerful story and one which I hope my book club buddies embraced with open mindedness, tolerance and wisdom. "All of the wonders that we have been exploring in this book turned out to find their fullest expression in Him: all roads meet." For me, this book reveals the Divinity of His truth. "
