AUTHOR'S SPECIAL NOTE:
Greetings from the frrrrozen white north! My publisher is giving away an advance reader copy this week, exclusively to members of the Goodreads community. I hadn't planned on hanging out with the folks at Westboro Baptist Church, or getting rejected by Billy Graham, or denying North Korean dictators, but these experiences changed me forever- and I hope they do the same for you. Shalom!
"Fun and insightful." -Booklist
“Brock proves that you don’t have to live in a monastery and grow a two-foot beard to have a rich prayer life… though having a beard certainly doesn’t hurt.” -Aaron Alford, BeardedGospelMen.net
"You will be swept up in the sheer force of the storytelling, the beauty of the prose, the many comedies of error, the exotic cast of characters, and–above all–the drama of Jared’s prayer life.” -Mark Buchanan
Also feel free to enter Jared's other Goodreads giveaway for a chance to win 1 of 3 signed first edition hardcovers!

The Christian apologist Jos…more
The Christian apologist Josh McDowell, in his book “More Than a Carpenter”, tries to answer issues crucial for our epoch, connected with the person and the deeds of Jesus, called Christ – Who is he? God? A great teacher? Or a liar and a lunatic? Or maybe he is the Devil himself?
McDowell’s research, however, is biased and unsatisfactory.
In The End of the Jesus Era the above assumptions regarding “the God-man” are thoroughly analyzed, as well as the question whether the Old Testament really prophesies about him.
The topic of God is also of key importance in the investigation: Does He exist? Where is He? What is His name? What does He look like? What is characteristic of Him? What He is not… What has made the biblical image of God so repulsive to a large number of thinking people? …
Autobiographical notes, stories and observations from the time when the author was a zealous Christian are also included in the study.
With passionate commitment to God, the book strongly criticizes Jesus and Religion.
In this respect it is more religious than atheistic, more philosophical than religious and more real-life than philosophical.
