From the opening story about beached whales being restored to the ocean, this marvelous book had me hooked. A brilliant exploration of the fullness of life that Jesus offers - drawing from key passages in John's gospel. I have already bought another copy for someone who is exploring Christianity - I can think of no better introduction to the gospel as truly good news.

I've just read Real Life Jesus for the second time. And it's just as good!
