Who is Jesus? Lots of people ask that question. Many others have an answer. But how can we find out for ourselves?

The Bible is where the story unfolds – but getting into it, let alone understanding it, is another matter. Time then for a fresh introduction to the world’s bestseller and the one named Jesus who is at the centre of it all.

Who? is the New Testament written as a single exciting story that reads like a novel. The verses are grouped into passages without verse numbers and are presented as one narrative, which makes it easy to read and understand – yet it’s still faithful to the original text. It starts with the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) then leads through to the rest of the New Testament in a fresh and challenging way.

‘I have tried to imagine how the New Testament authors might have written had they been alive today.’ explains the author, Paul Langham

It’s perfect for people who have never made it past the front cover of a Bible before or those who have tried but struggled to read it. 

Available as an eBook from £6.99.
