Why does the mysterious teacher from Nazareth still call and compel followers after 2,000 years? No figure in history has received more attention, and been less understood, than Jesus of Nazareth. Popular author and preacher, Willimon helps us understand why Jesus continues to fascinate us in spite of all the attempts to domesticate his message and put distance between us and the call to follow. Willimon explains how Jesus--in his teachings, his self-sacrificial death, and his liberating life beyond death--teaches and shows us the true meaning and purpose of our own lives.

William H. Willimon is Professor of the Practice of Ministry at Duke University Divinity School. A retired bishop of The United Methodist Church, he served previously as Dean of Duke Chapel. Recognized as one of the most effective preachers in the English-speaking world, he is the author of several books, including A Guide to Preaching and Leading Worship and The Collected Sermons of William H. Willimon, published by Westminster John Knox Press.
