Why Jesus? Large Print

By Nicky Gumbel

Large Print Edition

Why Jesus? is a concise, easy-to-read study of the very real questions people may have about Jesus and why his birth, death and resurrection are central to the Christian faith.

Written by Nicky Gumbel, the pioneer of Alpha and vicar of HTB in London, it explores why we need Jesus and how he satisfies our hunger for meaning and purpose in life, for life beyond death, and for forgiveness.

Exploring Jesus' claims, character and death, Nicky uses effortlessly uncomplicated language to talk about the freedom we receive from guilt, addition, and fear, and the freedom to know God, to love other people, and to change.

Why Jesus? is illustrated throughout by Charlie Mackesy, author of the best-selling book ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’.

This large print edition of the booklet is A5 in size and uses a 16-point font and is designed to be given to anyone with questions about Jesus and the Christian faith.

Sections within the booklet include:

  • Why do we need Jesus?
  • How do we know Christianity is true?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did he come?
  • Why did he die?
  • Common excuses for not accepting the gift
  • What do we have to do?
  • A simple prayer to start your relationship with God
  • What now?

Why Jesus? is also available in a smaller size and font.
