What's in a name? In the case of Jesus Christ, rich insights, fresh perspectives, and pathways to intimacy.

Shelly, a deeply respected scholar, has researched and written numerous books and commentaries, including the very popular What Would Jesus Do Today? In The Names of Jesus, Shelly uses his unique insight and fervent love for the Scriptures to develop a clear and unobstructed picture of Jesus through the biblical names that describe the One who invites the whole world to come to Him.
