"We cannot make Jesus in our own image. We have to let him speak for himself, and then accept or reject him on the basis of who he says he is and who other people close to him say he is....Keep asking questions of him. Once you have made up your mind that he is who he claims to be, he will make a claim on your life and your life will not be the same. It will change your life." -- from the author Carol Anderson, rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, California, has written an ideal introduction to the Christian faith, sharing key moments of her own life and telling the story of Jesus as it is foreshadowed in the Old Testament and presented in the Gospels.
