Is Jesus relevant today? Few figures have had such an influence on history as Jesus of Nazareth. His teachings have inspired discussion, arguments, even war - and yet few have ever held forth as movingly on the need for peace, forgiveness and mercy. Paul Johnson's brilliant reading offers readers a lively biography of the man who inspired one of the world's great religions and whose lessons still guide people in current times.
Paul Johnson's many books, including "A History of Christianity, A History of the Jews, Modern Times, Churchill," and "Napoleon: A Penguin Life," have been hailed as masterpieces of historical analysis. He is a regular columnist for "Forbes" and "The Spectator," and his work has also appeared in "The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal," and many others publications. He lives in London.
