For 45 years, Michel Dent served as a pastor in The United Methodist Church. In congregations in Texas and Colorado, large and small, rural, urban, and suburban, new and old, he preached over 2,000 messages in the Unites States and overseas, sharing the timeless and timely words of God in wisdom tales to serve the current era.
In his latest book, Understanding Jesus in the 21st Century, Dr. Dent calls readers to study, pray, seek, and claim the Holy One of God as Lord of life. He doesn’t shy away from “controversial” issues as he discusses topics on the minds of many Christians who approach a “post-pandemic” world with both hope and uncertainty.
His topics include:
• Jesus and Racism • Jesus and Politics: I have a candidate • Jesus and Politics: How Faithful People Can Change Politics • Jesus and Politics: Looking for Transformational Leaders • Jesus and Jews • Jesus and Other Religions • Jesus and Sexuality • Jesus the Refugee • Jesus and the Most Interesting Man in the World • Jesus and Sports • Jesus and Christopher Columbus • Jesus and Willie Nelson • Jesus and Osama bin Laden • Jesus and Contentment • Jesus and Faith in a Pandemic World • Jesus and Thanksgiving • Jesus and Pets
Written with both individual readers and small groups in mind, Understanding Jesus in the 21st Century is sure to create conversation and soul-searching.
