The Jesus I know : honest conversations and diverse opinions about who He is / Kathie Lee Gifford.

Summary

Summary:

"Kathie Lee Gifford has for decades had deep conversations about her faith with anyone who is interested in talking about it. What she discovered early on is most people want to talk about Jesus: atheists, agnostics, Scientologists, broken-hearted Catholics, confused Baptists, Pentecostals, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Hindus alike. While some do not share her belief that Jesus is the Messiah, they nonetheless have a universal fascination with Him. This singular Man who lived more than two thousand years ago, never traveled more than one hundred miles from where He was born, managed to change the entire world in His short thirty-three years of life. In The Jesus I Know, Kathie Lee shares cherished conversations about this rabbinic Jew that she's had with others who find Him to be an ancient historical figure who somehow continues to be an undeniably magnetic, relevant presence in the modern world. Using Kathie Lee's favorite Scripture passages as scaffolding, these thought-provoking exchanges are from a diversity of people, including Kris Jenner, Pattie Mallette (mom to Justin Bieber), Megyn Kelly, Jimmy Wayne, and hitmakers Louis York and Jason Kennedy"-- Provided by publisher.
"New York Times bestselling author Kathie Lee Gifford reveals heartwarming, entertaining conversations between celebrities who often disagree about who Jesus is, and their stories of what He means to them. For decades Kathie Lee has had deep conversations with anyone interested in discussing her faith. What she discovered is most people want to talk about Jesus: atheists, agnostics, Scientologists, broken-hearted Catholics, confused Baptists, Pentecostals, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Hindus alike. While some whom Kathie Lee engaged in conversation do not share her belief that Jesus is the Messiah--as prophesied for centuries in the Hebrew scriptures--they nonetheless share a universal fascination with Him. This singular man, a rabbinic Jew who lived more than two thousand years ago and never traveled more than one hundred miles from where He was born, managed to change the world. Even the way we delineate history (BC/AD) comes from His short thirty-three years of life. In The Jesus I Know, Kathie Lee shares cherished conversations with others about an historical figure who continues on as an undeniably magnetic, relevant presence in the modern world. Using Kathie Lee's favorite Scripture passages as scaffolding, these thought-provoking exchanges include a diversity of people, such as Craig Ferguson, Al Pacino, Hoda Kotb, Howard Stern, Ethel Kennedy, Kevin Costner, Maria Shriver, Katherine Schwarzenegger, Dolly Parton, Evil Knievel, Kris Jenner, Jenna Bush Hager, Regis Philbin, Patti Mallette (mom to Justin Bieber), and hitmakers Louis York and Jason Kennedy"-- Provided by publisher.
