The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus

Who was the Man? What was the Message?

Fifth Edition (2010)

by John R. Cross

a book that has been used of God to bring thousands to a clear UNDERSTANDING of the Gospel

This is a book you can hand to an unbeliever.

Are you one of those who wants to tell all your friends about the Bible—but are a little nervous about being able to explain it? Here is a book that gets you started. As a narrative, the Bible is explained chronologically from the beginning to the end, starting with simple truths and moving to the complex. THE STRANGER ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS is an effective tool to teach the Bible’s message—the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—in a clear and logical manner.

  • Objective Presentation

    No arm twisting—the Bible is allowed to speak for itself

  • No Bible Knowledge Needed

    Begins with basics—nothing is assumed. Even those with Bible knowledge find it fresh and educational

  • Complete Overview

    A panoramic sweep unfolds the Bible’s core message, presented chronologically from A to Z

  • Audience/Worldview Sensitive

    Written for individuals influenced by “Christianity” whether Protestant or Catholic

  • Unique Narrative Approach

    Told as a story, with 1200 Bible verses woven into the text

  • Helpful Illustrations

    Over 100 drawings, maps and diagrams give context to the story

  • Review & Dig Deeper

    The Workbook provides a dynamic review of the content. (Not available for all translations)

  • Ready-to-Give

    Give to friends without further explanation. The gospel is all there—simple and very clear

The Stranger… is a breakthrough book for sharing a chronological approach to the Bible with unsaved friends and family in a reasonable amount of time. This can be read through in about 8 hours. A great evangelistic tool.

The Bible has been called “the most misunderstood book in history.” Wars have been fought in ts name, scandals have bee precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same. If you are a typical member of the human race, you have often been perplexed by all the “fuss” surrounding the Bible. The question remains, “What does it really say?”

About the author

John R. Cross writes from knowledge gained in a life-long study of the Bible. He has extensive experience travelling and living abroad John and his family are from Canada.

Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part—and missing the whole—the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening—but always true to the intent of the text.

When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing “the Book” like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you.

All That The Prophets Have Spoken

Islam tells us that Muhammad (570 to 632 AD) recited the Koran to his disciples who wrote it down on palm-leaves, stones and other material they had on hand. In his recitation, he taught his followers that they were to believe the Pentateuch or Torah of Moses, the Psalms of David and the Gospel of Jesus. Now Yehia Saa has written an overview of the Holy Scripture using the original uncorrupted text as it was available in and before the 1st century—including the exact same scripture portions Muhammad endorsed in the 7th century.

ALL THAT THE PROPHETS HAVE SPOKEN is a fresh look at the Word of God, from the perspective of a Muslim reader. All the Prophets begins at the beginning—with creation—as performed by a truly Great God. Then touching on the lives of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Enoch, Noah, Job, Abraham, Ishmael, and on through the end, All the Prophets outlines where each Prophet fits in history. The book concludes by summarizing the prophecies of the Prophets themselves, focusing on three key events in history. If you are one to profess belief in “all that the Prophets have spoken,” then this book is for you.
