Experience the Bible come to life before your eyes as New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin uses his storyteller's imagination to present the life of Jesus in a way that will engage your faith in new ways. This collection of over twenty short stories, compiled from Martin's books What If It's True? and They Turned the World Upside Down, draws you into a deeper understanding and love for the Savior.
Son of Man presents key moments from the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and explores the lives of His followers in descriptive, novelistic words. This unique collection:
- Fosters a stronger appreciation, love, and respect for Jesus
- Covers themes including rejection, service, unconditional love, and forgiveness
- Uses the lives of the disciples as inspiration to be the light in a dark world
- Shows how the disciples' same world-changing faith is still around today
Son of Man is perfect for someone who loves Christian fiction. Known for his beloved lyrical style, in this paperback edition, Martin illuminates key moments from Scripture with stories such as "Where the Father's Love Found Him," "Betrayed," and "The Borrowed Tomb." Martin's writing offers a way to see how Jesus' life and the lives of His disciples revealed an unwavering confidence in the power and presence of God.
Since the publication of “What If It’s True” and “They Turned the World Upside Down,” readers have asked that we collect the narratives, or stories, in the events surrounding Jesus’ life and ministry and collect them in a smaller, easily-accessible version. All story from beginning to end. Something to hand to a friend or a one-more to draw them in to the larger story.
“Son of Man” is that collection. Included are 26 stories, or narratives, lifted from “What If It’s True” and “They Turned the World Upside Down.” My prayer is that these stories will lead you from this book to the only one that really matters, the Bible, where you can read the whole thing for yourself. I have long prayed that my stories would stand as roadsigns to Jerusalem. Pointing the way to the only One who saves. I offer this book in that hope.
