    There s a lot to unwrap when it comes to Seeing Jesus from the East It s message is timely and timeless I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the true Gospel story of who Jesus really is Zacharias and Murray, both being of Eastern descent, give a thorough commentary on the truth of Jesus and the cultural context in which He was here Parables tak


  2. Angela Russell Angela Russell says:

    I absolutely loved this book It gave me a new, richer lens with which to see Jesus I appreciated the cultural context the two authors provided as well as their criticism of why we can t view Jesus exclusively through Western eyes We miss the full scope of the gospel if we strip him of his culture A fabulous read and, one I did in a single day Easy to get through, and


  3. G. Salter G. Salter says:

    While the language is sometimes repetitive like most professional public speakers, the authors have key phrases they like to use over and over to hit the point home, a strategy that isn t really necessary for a book , the content is quite good Murray and Zacharias open readers eyes to concepts that make sense of sections in the Gospels which may have seemed confusing su

    This book was an ARC book I really liked it Zacharias is an astute apologist His Christianity come across very even handed and logical Bringing Jesus back to his Eastern origins and the view from a person of that origin paints one of the truest pictures of Jesus something I was thinking of 25 years ago This book is well done, well researched, painted with great stories It

    Being married to an Egyptian American man for twenty five years taught this Tennessee girl a lot about seeing Jesus from Eastern eyes, but Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray put it on paper This opening quote in the introduction says a lot about this Jesus, who is Savior of the whole world His reasoning is global his stories are local his visitation is transcendent his message is p


  8. Dusty Ginsbach Dusty Ginsbach says:

    The book is a timely and thought provoking piece that resists the origin of Christianity as an obscure Middle Eastern religion that overtook the Western works even before the rise of Islam To all peoples, Zacharias and Murray relate the teachings of Jesus through the different mindset of Easterners, where family honor and disgrace control society to a much greater extent than Wes


  9. Tim Murphy Tim Murphy says:

    An excellent look at Jesus who came from a Middle Eastern culture but whose life and message really lies at the foundation of western culture The authors present Him as the one with a message that fits both cultures and is best understood when realizing that Abdu Murray s description of the difficulty of coming to God through Jesus out of an honor and shame culture and how doing so
