In this guide, Bill Donahue and Keri Wyatt Kent present Jesus as the supreme Lord of the universe, and yet he desires your companionship. He is the one who can share your suffering, understand your weaknesses and always keep your trust. God made you to desire relationship and gave you his Son to fulfill your deepest needs. Come and meet Jesus, your friend.

The Jesus 101 Series engages both mind and heart. The sessions bring a fresh perspective on who Jesus is, how he interacted with people in Scripture and how he relates to us. The discussion questions are designed particularly to help a group to learn from each other but also provide an interesting context for individual reflection. As you discover the ways Jesus fulfills our lives, you may fall in love with him again--or for the first time.

"Nothing in this life . . . is worth more than the quest to ponder Jesus. Bill Donahue offers us one of the finest guides in print to accompany us on this journey."

Dan B. Allender, Ph.D., author of The Wounded Heart and The Intimate Mystery
