What reason do you have for believing Christianity is true?

The best reason is Jesus himself.

James W. Sire invites you to meet Jesus by digging deep into the Bible. You'll discover what Jesus did and said. And you'll be encouraged to decide what place Jesus has in your life today.

Whether you are reading the Gospels for the first time or for the fiftieth, you'll find these investigative Bible studies challenging and transforming.

This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.
