When did the good news about Jesus Christ begin? At Christmas? No. At Easter? No. How about in the New Testament? Not exactly. Let the Gospel writer, Mark, introduce you to the greatest story ever told – the story of forgiveness, salvation and life – the story of Jesus. His story begins in a desert, back with an Old Testament promise from God.
Matthew Sleeman teaches at Oak Hill College, London. He helps train people who want to teach others about Jesus and how to follow him. Matthew has been a Christian since childhood, when his mother used to read the Bible with him. He hopes both children and adults will enjoy reading and hearing this book.
