I remember exactly where I was.
I was sitting at the dining room table at my family’s cabin outside of Estes Park, Colorado. I was having my morning devotional, with view below to inspire me. Not a bad way to find some morning inspiration.
I was reading in John’s Gospel, it has always been one of my favorite books in the Bible.
I love John because it’s a mix of theology, philosophy and apologetics. John gives us signs–miracles–to support Jesus’ claims of deity. And it’s one of those claims that got my attention that morning at the cabin.
I was reading in John 8 and I came upon this statement of Jesus in verse 40:
I know I’d read the statement before, probably dozens of times. But this time it slammed into me. There stood Jesus, addressing the religious elite of his day, claiming to be the man who told us the truth–the truth, by the way, that he heard directly from God.
That statement on that day in that setting forever changed how I see Jesus. I saw him as the man that God sent to tell us the truth–the truth about ourselves, about God and about eternity. And I knew right then and there that I would write a book for spiritual seekers based on that claim. I wanted to write a book that I could hand to an unbelieving friend as a resource that would help him or her understand Jesus better. A Man Who Told Us the Truth is that book.
Fast-forward over a decade later, and that book is here. And, God is using it:
- I read this book with a highlighter in my hand and there are very few unhighlighted pages. If you are not a Christian, you should read this book. If you are a young Christian in the faith, you should read this book. If you a long time Christian (like me) you should read this book. Oh did I mention, you should read this book!–Amazon Reviewer
- It is refreshing to have a talented pastor like Mr. Davis boldly take on these issues that it sometimes feels like Christians skirt around or provide non-answers about.–Amazon Reviewer
- While the book is targeted for a nonbeliever audience, it’s very valuable in helping believers better understand the nonbeliever point of view as well as reinforcing and deepening the believer’s meaning of truth.–Amazon Reviewer
