‘More Than a Carpenter’ is a book that challenges its readers to ask the question, "Who is Jesus?" The book is less than a hundred fifty pages long; so one can almost finish it in a single sitting.
The book focuses on the validity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God. It also focuses on resurrection and views Christ from a variety of standpoints.
There is also a focus on the motives and meanings behind the lives of Christs' disciples. The writer also tells us how Christ has turned around his life.
Once upon a time the writer was skeptical about Christ and thought that Christians must be "out of their minds". He argued against their faith in Christ. But eventually he realized that Jesus Christ really was God in human flesh and he went on to challenge those who were just as skeptical as he had been. He wrote this book as a hardheaded book for people who are skeptical about Jesus' deity, his resurrection, his claims on their lives.
The writer acknowledges that while the topic of God is widely accepted, the name of Jesus often causes irritation. This is because others like Buddha, Mohammed, didn't claim to be God, but Jesus Christ did it.
By referring to scientific and historical evidence, the validity of the Bible, and proofs of the resurrection, the book helps the readers to come to an informed and intelligent decision about whether Jesus was a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord.
The book puts Jesus in all his glory as a part of true, living history. The book is a real wake-up call for all those who are skeptical about Christ.
