When children are sold into slavery—what good is Jesus? When wretched disease takes a loved one’s life—what good is Jesus? When marriages crumble and jobs disappoint—what good is Jesus? Pastor and author Marv Nelson answers these questions and more in his new book What Good Is Jesus?, on sale for just 99¢ today only. After Thursday the price will go up to $2.99 through the weekend, and then it will return to regular price. So don’t wait- pick up your copy now!

WhatGoodisJesus99Synopsis: Many know of Jesus, but few actually know Him. The real entity of Jesus has been tainted by how His followers have portrayed His image in their lives. The institution of religion has overtaken the beauty of relationship, and many Christians are walking away with a bitter taste. Faced with declining opportunities, a war-torn globe, and seemingly-insurmountable crises, many millennials are asking the sincere question: what good is Jesus?

Pastor Marv Nelson doesn’t avoid tough questions; instead, he tackles issues head-on with love and wisdom. Examining sexuality, politics, racial tensions, suffering, and more, Nelson addresses these problems through a relational rather than religious approach and shows us just what good Jesus really is.

An unexpected letter from her great-grandmother brings Laura face-to-face with her birth family.
