In his usual compelling and highly visual style Lucado muses on how Jesus is our "Next Door Savior"--a savior who mixes with the ordinariness of our lives. As usual, Lucado creates scenes and uses words in such a way as to touch the heart and make you think about Spiritual things in new ways. There's a reason why he is one of the best selling Christian authors of our day--it's because he has an incredible talent. A study guide for individuals or groups is also included in the back of the book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0849917603, Hardcover)

We applaud men for doing good things.

We enshrine God for doing great things.

But what about a man who does God things?

One thing is certain. We can't ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God.

The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league. The head of the parade? Hardly. No one else shares the street. Who comes close? Humanity's best and brightest fade like dime-store rubies next to him.

Dismiss him? We can't. Resist him? Equally difficult. Why would we want to?

Don't we need a God-man Savior? A just-God Jesus could make us, but not understand us. A just-man Jesus could love us, but never save us. But a God-man Jesus?

Near enough to touch. Strong enough to trust. A next door Savior.

Through Scripture and stories, introduces Jesus as someone who is intimately acquainted with all kinds of people, who got his feet wet and his hands dirty, and whose very presence transformed lives.
