Who? Who is Jesus? Many people ask that question. Many others have an answer. How can we find out for ourselves?

Who? is the New Testament written as a single exciting story that reads like a novel. It starts with the synoptic gospels woven together into an energetic single narrative and then continues through the rest of the New Testament in a fresh and challenging way.

Following on from Paul Langham’s hugely successful retelling of the New Testament that was first launched in 2012, this revised and extended edition retains the accessible narrative style of the first version, but separates the Gospels and adds verse numbers – making it easier to use alongside another Bible translation.

This revised and extended edition offers:

all four Gospels as separate books
revised introductions to the books and letters
verse numbers added to the text
