Reviews of The Life of Jesus Foretold
1. I was totally blown away by reading this book! It is written in pseudo-novel form, which makes easy reading, while backing up the events with biblical facts. I like the way Stephen lays out dates and times of events, so that my finite mind can easily comprehend not only what is taking place, but when it is taking place. This book would be a very helpful aid for those who want to share with unbelievers, especially Jewish people, about the life of our Lord. The Old Testament lays out the prophecies of the Messiah and nails down irrefutable evidence of Jesus being He. In the Appendixes you will find the 130 prophecies of the Messiah fulfilled by Jesus and the chronology of the life of Christ. This is good reading for a beginning student of the Bible and for an advanced theologian.

2. The Life of Jesus Foretold is of benefit to the average Christian, as well as the serious Bible scholar. It is brimming with Scripture references that are edifying to the reader and that uplift the mighty name of Jesus. I recommend this book to everyone I know.

3. In our Bible Institute in Honduras we use Stephen’s book translated into Spanish, on the Life of Christ, for our “Life of Christ” course textbook. The book reads easily so that our Central American students enjoy reading the book, but it causes you to meet the true and powerful Spirit-filled Savior, and at the same time you are immersed in his fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecies and Promises, the culture of His times, and the spiritual significance of the events that were taking place. The end result is a solid learning experience mixed with an enthusiasm to know more and more about Jesus.

4. Having been a Christian teacher for 44 years, I have spent much time studying the Bible and Christian books. Yet I was amazed and excited to read The Life of Jesus Foretold. It is written in a clear, concise, and easy to understand style, yet it is a thorough study of the life of Christ, in chronological order. Along with a retelling of the life of Christ, it documents the Old Testament prophecies about our Messiah which came to pass in Jesus’ life and shows how amazingly accurate those prophecies are. I see it as a great asset, useful for teaching about the life of Christ in a class, or as a home Bible study, or simply as a devotional with which you can relax and learn more about our Savior.
