Lessons from the Carpenter: An Apprentice Learns from Jesusby H. Michael Brewer
Synopses & Reviews
Before Jesus was a teacher and a healer–before his life changed the world–he was a carpenter. Woodworking was his occupation for most of his time on earth, and the years he spent in Joseph’s shop clearly shaped his message and ministry.
Now, by gaining an understanding of first-century carpentry, you can revolutionize your faith through the discovery of surprising insights into Christ’s life.
The ministry of Jesus was spiritual carpentry. He rebuilt broken people and constructed a new world. His workmanship still amazes all who put themselves in his hands, and his principles for constructing a solid life are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago.
In Lessons from the Carpenter, you can sit as an apprentice at the feet of this amazing master carpenter. And learn firsthand how he builds and rebuilds beautiful lives meant to last forever.
H. Michael Brewer has been a Presbyterian pastor for over twenty-five years and is an adjunct professor in religious studies at Northern Kentucky University. A professional writer for more than two decades, he is the author of Who Needs a Superhero? and Gotta Have God. He and his wife, Janet, are the parents of two daughters.
