Description

I was a happy teenager, content with my home, my academic success, my sporting achievements and my friendships. And I stumbled across the greatest friend of all, Jesus Christ. He is the treasure I have come to value above all else.
I was not an emotional cripple looking for a crutch. I was not a romantic looking for a cause. I was not at the bottom of the pile hoping for a leg-up. I was not looking for anything in particular. But I found treasure, and that treasure has utterly transformed my life, my goals, my lifestyle …'
Michael Green shares his passion, reflections, convictions and suggestions from a lifetime of church and university missions, not to mention numerous informal encounters.
A book to provoke, stimulate and inspire, but above all fire up every Christian for the urgent task of evangelism.
Canon Dr Michael Green lectures at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. His many books include Evangelism in the Early Church, I Believe in the Holy Spirit, I'd Like to Believe, But … and Lies, Lies, Lies! He has travelled the world in the cause of the gospel, and has been, amongst other things, a minister, a college principal, an apologist and a radio/TV speaker. He lives with his wife Rosemary in Oxford, UK.
