Hardcover ~ Kindle ~ Audiobook

New York Times bestselling author Kathie Lee Gifford reveals heartwarming, entertaining conversations between people and personalities who both agree and disagree about who Jesus is, his role throughout history, and his presence in our lives today.

For decades Kathie Lee has had deep conversations about her faith with anyone who is interested in talking about it. What she discovered early on is most people are very willing to talk about Jesus: atheists, agnostics, Scientologists, Jews, broken-hearted Catholics, confused Baptists, Pentecostals, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Hindus alike. While some of the people Kathie Lee has spoken with do not share her belief that Jesus is the Messiah—as prophesied for centuries by prophets in the Hebrew scriptures—they nonetheless have a universal fascination with Him. This singular man who lived more than two thousand years ago, and never traveled more than one hundred miles from where He was born, managed to change the entire world. Even the way we delineate history (BC/AD) comes from His short thirty-three years of life.

In The Jesus I Know, Kathie Lee shares cherished conversations that she’s had with others who find Jesus to be an ancient historical figure who somehow continues to be an undeniably magnetic, relevant presence in the modern world. Those conversations include:

  • actors like Kristin Chenoweth and Cynthia Garrett
  • with stories of Craig Ferguson and Kevin Costner
  • newsmakers and news personalities like Kris Jenner, Megyn Kelly, Jason Kennedy, and Janice Dean
  • performers like Chynna Phillips Baldwin, Brian Welch, Jimmie Allen, and Jimmy Wayne
  • hitmakers like Louis York and David Pomeranz
  • as well as those coming from other faith traditions.

Using Kathie Lee’s favorite Scripture passages as scaffolding, these thought-provoking exchanges will bring His teachings to life before your very eyes.

My Review

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

A very insightful book about one common thought – no matter who we are Jesus loves us. In this interview styled book, Kathie talks to all sorts of people of different standings and finds out how they came to know Jesus or their thoughts on who He is. I think that no matter what walk of life you are on, once you know the love of Jesus is extremely hard to turn away from that. I enjoyed hearing other people’s stories in an interview with Kathie. I kind of wish the chapters were longer so we could get to know each person/couple a while longer. As a Christian I find it very interesting to hear from believers as well as non-believers. I wish I could change everyone’s mind to believe but we all have our own opinions. Great book! Definitely one worth checking out.
