Many people have read the Bible’s Gospel account of Jesus but have trouble relating to it. However, in his new book, “The Man Nobody Knew,” author Garrett Whitworth brings the story of Jesus to life using John, one of Jesus’ most trusted disciples, as the narrator giving his first person account of Jesus’ life on earth.

“The Man Nobody Knew,” is a historical novel about the life of Jesus, faithful to the Gospel story. Through John’s eyes, readers are taken on a compelling road trip from Nazareth to Jerusalem where they can come to know Jesus and be transported back to the time and place of the man and events that changed the course of world history.

“I wrote this book so that I can know Jesus (the man) better, and help others to know him better as well,” said Whitworth. “I chose to write in first person for the purpose of helping the reader to feel as if he or she were right there, in every scene, as an eye-witness to the most important events in world history.”

Author Garrett Whitworth grew up attending Christian schools off an on from the first grade through college. “I am certainly not a theologian,” he said, “and this book is not about Christian theology. It is about a man, the most important man who ever lived. I wrote it for people who have never even heard of him and for those who may know about him but want to know him better.”
