Myers, Stephen G.
The name means so many things to so many people. This book has as its aim to know Jesus. In order to know Him experientially and personally we must know what the Bible says about Him. To come to this knowledge we will delve into the holy mysteries of the Word of God and the historic Christian faith. Whether you are a skeptic, an agnostic, an inquirer, or a convinced Christian, this book is meant to cause you to consider the mysteries that Jesus claimed of Himself that you too might join the cloud of witnesses that no man can number, confessing the name of Jesus—“God with us.”
This is the second edition.

Daniel R. Hyde (PhD, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) is the pastor of Oceanside United Reformed Church in Carlsbad/Oceanside, California.
“Why the God-Man? Anselm’s question frames the entire complex of Christian faith, piety, worship, and practice. With devotional warmth and doctrinal clarity, Pastor Hyde makes an excellent tour guide through the treasures that lie at the heart of history--indeed, at the heart of God himself. Whatever the stage in the Christian pilgrimage, God with Us will lead readers from meditation to doxology.” — Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
“Danny Hyde has provided the church with an outstanding study explaining the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is clear, biblically faithful, and impressively comprehensive given its concise length. This book is guaranteed to provide all sorts of people in and outside the church with a better understanding of the Savior and of why understanding who he is, is so important. I highly recommend it.” — David Van Drunen, Robert B. Strimple Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics, Westminster Seminary California.
