Publisher's Summary

Many people who knew Jesus understood him well enough to admire him, to respect him, and to love him. Others were terrified of him. Some of his own relatives said he was out of his mind. But the politically and religiously intolerant leaders of first-century Israel hated him. So they murdered him. But that wasn't the end of the story. Not by a long shot.

Today, more than 20 centuries later, respected Bible scholars Dr. Charles Missler and Dr. William Welty bring Jesus of Nazareth to you in the most unconventional way possible...by bringing Jesus of Nazareth to talk in his very own words about himself, his purpose, his nature, and his mission.

By the time you've finished listening to I, Jesus: an Autobiography, you'll have learned why this rabbi from Nazareth rose from literal obscurity - as well as from the grave - to change the very course of history.

Excellent, in depth study of Jesus!!

The study is an advanced level such that areas may need to be listened in shorter intervals and repeated for complete comprehension. It is worth the effort to understand more about our beloved Jesus!

Love the idea!

The concept of the book is awesome, unfortunately it came across a little dry and not personal. Understanding all the scriptures that Jesus used to confirm his deity is important, but I had hoped it would have been presented in a more personal, almost first person format. Chuck Missler and William Welty are amazing scholars and their work is life changing.

Enough w/ the pretentious voices already.

I really wanted to listen to this book! However, the narrator's constant changing of his voice, diction & inflexion became progressively distracting. Read the book, don't try to narrate it as if a play. And be consistent. After the 1st hour or so I just couldn't take it anymore. The constant changing of his voice got so annoying, to the point of distraction. I doubt Jesus, CS Lewis, etc. sounded like a Shakespearian actor, & a bad one at that....

A Compelling Presentation of Christ Jesus

I, Jesus is a refreshing polishing of the story of Jesus. Using the text of the scripture, it presents a compelling view of Jesus in His own words. This is a good book for new Christians, long-serving Disciples of Christ, and for those who may just be curious as to what Jesus actually said. In today's world we often hear that Jesus would do "such and such" or He would say "that." In all things it is wise to go directly to the source material and read the actual words of the Bible. Read the word's of Jesus to know what He said. Read the words of his Apostles to know how to apply Jesus' teachings. This book would make an excellent gift to anyone who you think might benefit from learning more about our loving Christ, who sacrificed his own life that we may be washed clean of sin and have eternal life in the company of God.

Jesus Christ the Messiah

Outstanding!!! The narrator does an excellent job. The writer backs up every claim Jesus makes about himself.

Might be OK in print, but very poor as audio

What disappointed you about I, Jesus: An Autobiography?

First of all, I, Jesus: An Autobiography is NOT an autobiography. Even calling it a biography would be deceptive. Autobiography, "a self-written account of the life of a person" this is not. There is a chapter which discusses the letters to the seven churches in the Revelation, where Jesus speaks in the first person--but that's it. There are quotes from the Gospels, but they are not self-written, but are the writers quoting Jesus. Then there are quotes from elsewhere in the New Testament where the writers talk about Jesus, which is starting to approach that of a biography, but the full telling of the story of Jesus' earthly or heavenly life just doesn't happen.

What the book does do, is to try to be apologetic. In the first section written by Welty, there are dozens of short chapters presented as "claims." On and on they go, unconnected with each other, no attempt at a narrative. Missler's writing makes up the latter part of the book. The afore-mentioned discussion of the Revelation letters which is just OK, but he often writes that "this warrants further exploration" then moves on to something else. Then there is a long discussion of coded names in the Hebrew version of a chapter from Isaiah where he tries to convince the reader that understanding these hidden puzzles--such as every 40th letter of these particular verses spells in Hebrew the name of one of Jesus' disciples--is a reason to believe that Jesus was who he said he was. Finally the book ends up with subject lists of Bible verse addresses, not the actual verse text, just the verse reference.

Possibly the presentation of these claims, letter puzzles, and such would be useful as a reference work, but I found it utterly frustrating to listen to as an audio book. Since I couldn't very well skip through it as an audio book or easily look back to earlier pages, I had to listen to the stream of narrative as it was written, and this book didn't present a narrative or a "story" that made reading it as audio a pleasant experience.

However, with all these strike outs at authorship, the thing I missed the most is this--the lack of of any revelation, insight, or deep understanding of Jesus, the man and God. The authors are scholars, but don't really offer substantial scholarship, nor do they present insight into Jesus as a person--living, breathing, interacting with other humans, having an interior life that manifests in a powerful outer life. Such is the stuff of great autobiography. This book is not that.

Understand the foundation

I listened to this, challenging the text. There is so much I have taken away from this. If you wrestle with the Word, this is a great starting point. Mid way through the author takes you on a journey of the authenticity and truth of the word. God bless your good work! Many thanks
