New Book Reveals a Seldom Explored Side of Jesus’ Life Story

News Image

In the hearts of all mankind, of whatever race or station in life, there are inexpressible longings for something they do not now possess. This longing is implanted in the very constitution of man by a merciful God that man may not be satisfied with his present conditions or attainments whether bad, or good, or better. Author Dr. Henry DePetro’s purpose for writing The Jesus You Never Knew is to set forth Jesus Christ as the One in whom every longing may be satisfied.

There are many excellent books written on the “Life of Christ” filled with an abundance of information, elaborate essays, on chronology and contemporaneous history, customs, and events, with much of the teaching and many glimpses of the many-sided life of Jesus of Nazareth. Yet, it may be truly said, “The half has never been told.” The Jesus You Never Knew presents the blessed Redeemer in a way that will help the reader to come to Him face to face, heart to heart and find in Him—as the disciples of old did—Jesus, the Mighty One, who saves and transforms in His own divine image, all of those who come unto God through Him.

A spiritually enlightening book, The Jesus You Never Knew presents the love of God as revealed in His Son, the divine beauty of the life of Christ, of which all may partake, and not to satisfy the desires of the merely curious nor the questionings of critics. It will help satisfy the longing of the human heart and lead believers to the fullness that is found in Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Eternal God.
