Who is this man?

John Ortberg is the senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, California, U.S. In this presentation John speaks on the amazing impact of Jesus from his book Who Is This Man? – The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus. In this brilliant piece he demonstrates that we live in Jesus-shaped world by tracing the enormous positive influence of his life on human history. You rediscover the amazing brilliance of the Messiah in his work. Yale historian Jeroslav Pelikan sums it up this way,

“Regardless of what anyone may personally think or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of Western Culture for almost 20 centuries. If it were possible, with some sort of super magnet, to pull up out of history every scrap of metal bearing at least a trace of his name, how much would be left?”

This book is a must read!
