In this third volume of the series, we have the joy of encountering the enigmatic but highly attractive figure of Jesus of Nazareth. Here is someone who entirely understands what it’s like to live in our glorious, chaotic, suffering world. But how may we grow in relationship with a person who is both fully human and fully divine? And how does the story of Jesus of Nazareth link up to other important stories, like God’s creation of the world, the calling of the people of Israel, and humankind’s age- old quest for meaning and significance?
