Getting to Know Jesus is a perfect book for someone who knows something but wants to know a lot more about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Eric Kampmann has designed the book to provide the chronological account of the life of Christ based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The origins of this book were a series of podcasts that Kampmann and Dr. Chuck Davis, Senior Pastor at Stanwich church, recorded over the course of one year. For this book, Kampmann used the content of the podcasts to build a commentary on the passage that provides a deeper look into the accounts of Jesus life, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection.
In addition to the book, Kampmann has provided an index that lists 31 bible or individual studies. The studies include an in depth look at the Sermon on the Mount, the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Raising Lazarus, the Seven Words of the Cross, the High Priestly Prayer, and much more."

Kampmann, CEO of Midpoint Trade Books, brings to book form a series of podcasts that he and his friend Chuck Davis created around short, topical readings of Biblical passages. Kampmanns podcasts (and this book) feature 365 daily scripture readings and brief commentary that draws attention to the historical, theological, and contemporary importance of each highlighted verse for todays Christian. In 365 one-page devotional readings, the author focuses entirely on Jesus: his birth, his youth, his public ministry, and finally, his death and resurrection. Readers will appreciate Kampmanns fully rounded narrative, which helps interested Christ followers in knowing Jesus better not only as the risen Christ, but as a boy and then a man living on Earth. Every aspect of human nature can be seen in Kampmanns fascinating daily readings, and even longtime Christians will discover fresh insights. (Dec.)
