What If It's True? A Storyteller's Journey with Jesus By Charles Martin

What If It's True?A Storyteller's Journey with Jesus

By Charles Martin 

With the same depth, sensitivity, and emotion that has made his novels beloved to millions, Charles Martin helps us engage the fundamental principles of our faith in new and inspiring ways.
Years ago, Martin cracked open his Bible and began wrestling with a few fundamental questions. He asked, “What if every single word of Scripture is absolutely true and I can trust it? How do I respond? Something in me should change, but what? How?” This book is the result of that exploration.
Writing as our guide, he uses a storyteller’s imagination to illuminate key moments from the Scriptures, primarily from the life and ministry of Jesus. In addition, Martin shares key moments from his own journey as a disciple—and bondservant—of Christ and a mentor to others. The result is a striking exploration of truth that helps us not just think differently, but live differently. Today.

My Thoughts:
First, if you have never read anything by Charles Martin, that changes today! Grab any of his books and you will be changed. Second, What If It's True will forever change your heart and beliefs about the Gospel. Martin brings the Gospel to life in a deep way that makes me feel as though I was witnessing the event. I can't even begin to describe or fathom my thoughts as I read this book. Martin illuminates the Bible in a transforming way that makes reading this book and your Bible an incredible journey. This is not a quick read, but one that I recommend you take your time. He isn't trying to add to the Bible or take away from it, but rather tell it in a way that makes the reader experience the Gospel in a new way. I highly recommend this book! I loved it! I have it highlighted. It is incredible.
