Publisher Comments:

Bruce Barton's 1925 effort to reconfigure Jesus for the Roaring Twenties turned into one of the great best-sellers of the century. In The Man Nobody Knows, Barton depicted Christ as a man's man, not the meek, effeminate figure he had encountered in Sunday School. No Puritan or Prohibitionist, this Jesus turned water into wine and was the most popular dinner guest in Jerusalem. Here was the world's first advertising man, whose parables sparkled as models for modern jingle writers. (Barton had co-founded the celebrated advertising firm of Batten, Barton, Durstine and Osborne.) Here was Christ, the world's greatest business executive, who picked up twelve men from the bottom ranks of business and forged them into an organization that conquered the world. When in the 1950s Barton felt compelled to revise his often-reprinted book for a new generation, he blurred its focus. In this new edition, the historian Richard Fried revives the primary source in Barton's original language. Mr. Fried explores the book's rich insights into the culture of the 1920s, revealing not only the union of religion and business but changing attitudes toward consumption and leisure, sexuality and the roles of men and women.

jdhise, December 6, 2008 (view all comments by jdhise)
Found this book along with its companion,'the book nobody knows' in an old book store in Ft. Smith Ar.
Was on a quest to answer a question put before me by my younger sister. She and her husband have converted to the Jewish faith. She had been a fundamental christian minister of the Gospel. She no longer considers Jesus Christ as the son of God, rather a great teacher, and the perfect man. Her question to me was, "What did Jesus really do? Salvation was always available to the Pagan,[gentile]and he never called himself the son of God."
Boy, Christ being my anchor stone for my very existance, I began to relate to what is written in the New Testament. She and her husband stopped me with the, "You can't use the New Testament, it is not the same as written." After two days of dialogue, I still could not break in to the answer to form the stone I needed. So, on a quest I went, In all my study books, I could not find the answer they apparently wanted. Maybe it was no answer they wanted me to concede. I asked God for help, Jesus has been my friend and intermediary with my Creator Jehovah God my entire life. And here I was, I could not answer this simple question. My right hand had been removed,New Testament and assoc writings no longer could be used.
As I searched through this old book store where I had found so many good books in recent years, I came across this book titled,'The Book nobody Knows'. It's price was six dollars marked inside the front cover, however it said for both. When I took the book to the lady to pay for it, She said' "This is part of a double volume" and went back to the shelf where the book was and reached up on the shelf above and pulled out this book, 'The Man Nobody Knows'.
To cut the story short, I found what I was looking for in this book. It is so simply said.

[[What was there for Jesus to add? Only one thought, but it was so much more splendid than all which had gone before that it has altered the current of history.
He (Jesus)invited frail bewildered humanity to stand upright and look at God face to face.]]

You know, I have always believed that God created human to talk to, face to face. And all teachers, ministers that I have set under have made it so difficult to believe. There is much more to this book, many more truths that this frail human can learn.
Christ is my Savior, my brother and Jehovah God is my Father. He loves me, this frail human that I am.
