Review:

Want to know Jesus better? Let author Bill Donahue introduce you to the many and wonderful aspects of our Lordís character in this biblically sound and spiritually uplifting book. Whether youíre a new believer or a seasoned Christian, these insights are precious and powerful.

The book is divided into eight sections, with each one revealing another facet of the Lordís ministry. Jesus is seen as leader, teacher, healer, and supreme conqueror. These divisions are then examined within five subheadings, making a total of forty reading segments. Because of this orderly breakdown of thoughts, these pages would make an ideal study for small groups or individuals. Each teaching adds another layer of understanding, until the final chapter ends with a glorious revelation of the Lordís everlasting power!

The authorís engaging writing style brings this vital subject to life in a real way. His sincerity, honesty, and enthusiasm are evident on every page. Bill Donahue admits to spending years asking questions about the true nature of Jesus. This book is partly the result of his search, which ended in a personal encounter with the Lord. The authorís intimate knowledge of Jesus is transferred to the written word with spiritual sensitivity and a feeling of genuine love. Because of this, readers will not only get to know Jesus the Lord; they will actually meet Jesus, the Friend of the author.

Since this book is part of the Jesus 101Bible Series, the facts are foundational, yet they are able to warm the heart of every believer in Christ. Step into the company of Jesus for a closer walk by His side! Ė Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

What images come to mind when you hear the name "Jesus"? Religious icon? Mystical guru? Maybe he's the figure in the stained glass window at church, or the painting hanging in the hallway of your grandmother's house.

Bill Donahue spent years asking these questions, and the Jesus he eventually met was not merely an ancient sage but the living, breathing Son of God. He found himself captivated by Jesus' teaching, embraced by his love and disarmed by his grace. And so in this book, the author brings to life the many facets of who Jesus is and what his work in the world is all about.

Written in forty brief segments with opportunities for personal reflection and dialogue with God, In the Company of Jesus makes ideal daily reading. This book is a companion to the Jesus 101 Bible Study series and elaborates on the ideas found in those studies.

This winsome approach to Jesus will expand your ideas about who he is and draw you into his very presence. Whether you are meeting Jesus for the first time or you've known him for many years, you'll find new insights from time spent in the company of Jesus.
