Product Description

The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus gives a solid overview of the main message of the Bible. It ties together key Old and New Testament stories to reveal the identity of God and the nature of sin, all the time answering two questions: “Who is Jesus?” and “What is the story of the cross and the tomb all about?” It helps a person understand clearly what is the main message of Bible.

“The Bible makes so much sense now!”

This book is ideal for people who come from a Christianized background, whether Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox. It assumes readers have a concept of only one God who is a person—not a force.

Features

  • Written for adults and teens: Understood by children as young as 10, but written for adults and teens.
  • Assumptions: Assumes that when readers think of God, they think of only one God, and that God is a person, not a force. No other Bible knowledge is assumed.
  • Christianized worldview: Ideal for readers who come from a background influenced by Christianity, whether Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox.
  • Based on the gospel of John: Uses the gospel of John as a template; at the same time, provides necessary background stories to give the gospel context. It assumes the reader knows very little, if anything, about the Bible.
  • Chronological: Begins with the creation of the universe, and then progressing sequentially through key Old Testament stories, it moves into the New Testament to reveal the meaning of the cross and the tomb. The main story of the Bible is tied together into one universal, all-encompassing drama.
  • Peels religious tradition off the Bible: Readers are introduced to the Bible without the trappings of religion.
  • Objective: The Bible is allowed to speak for itself in presenting the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no arm-twisting to believe. The message is presented objectively; the decision to believe or not to believe is left to the reader.
  • Bible verses: Told as a story, 1177 Bible verses are woven throughout the text. The reader engages with the text of the Bible for himself.
  • Illustrated: Over 100 drawings, maps and diagrams help explain the story.
  • Designed to giveaway: The book can be passed on like a gospel tract. Readers can then learn the Bible's message on their own.
  • Designed to use in a course: This resource can be used as the student’s book in a Bible study. (Learn more about “The Worldview Rethink Course.”)

  1. This Book Helped to Save Me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    I was born a Catholic and I had given up on the Church and pretty much God by the age of 17. After a nasty divorce, I knew that I had to make some major changes in my life. I met a wonderful man who brought me back to Church, this time a Baptist Church. There was a woman there that had also been a Catholic, and she gave me a copy of this book. Since I had never owned my own Bible before The Stranger on the Road provided me with knowledge about God’s meanings that I had been missing in my life and I truly have been saved. I am now a happy Christian woman, who has passed the book on to another friend in need of God in her life.

  3. this Bible Study changed my life 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    I emphasized how this Bible Study changed my life. I really shared the awesome truths in the Old Testament that needs understanding before people can truly understand GOD’s redemptive plan for mankind. They understand that once they have read this awesome study they will have their arms around the ENTIRE BIBLE for the first time in their life.

  4. Great tool for every Christian, young, old and everything in between 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    I was very pleased reading this great book. Al last, it seems possible to write a book that provides enough basic knowledge without losing yourself in denominational and/or dogmatic issues.
    The respect and love for God and his Word are coming on to you from every page of this book.
    Also written with lots of respect for people with different opinions. A great tool for personal studie or studies in groups. Honestly, i can’t wait till its translated in Dutch! Are there any plans?
    I would love to have a share in a Dutch translation project.

  5. Allows people with a semi-religious background to genuinely understand how to recieve Christ as Savior 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    WOW!
    We've had 8 people recieve Christ at our church recently; 5 of those salvation decisions have come from and understanding of God's plan of salvation after reading through the Stranger book. We buy these books by the case because our church has found them to be the most effective evangelism tool for Bible study for people in our area.

  6. It all fits together! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    I agree with the other comments. This book is very good. I used the book with my 14 year old to help him develop his views on what he believes. It makes so much sense. I am a firm believer that a book should be read from front cover to back cover. The first time I read the Bible through for myself, it made more sense to me. I appreciate this book and also hope to be able to give many out for friends and family to read.

    Thank you for writing it!

  7. Clear, Concise, and AMAZING 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2013

    If you are reading this review I encourage you to purchase this book. I've been a christian for 11 yrs and this is by far the best book you will read that clearly illustrates the message of the Bible. You will finish reading and will totally understand God's plan from beginning to end. I absolutley LOVE THIS BOOK and I have purchased MANY COPIESSS and have given this out during Christmas to believers and non believers (I'd recommend "By This Name" for non believers)

    It's also a great tool to use in order to help you to explain the gospel to others. I'm still working on doing just that and I am happy to have a resource like the stranger to turn to! PLEASE don't hesistant...It's a page turner for new and seasoned christians!

    God Bless You

  8. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2013

    This is the best book I've read that clearly explains the gospel and message of God of how it all fits together from The Garden to Christ's return. EVERYONE should read it whether you are a new believer or not.
