Some of life's best experiences come from surprising close encounters - dolphins swimming nearby, bumping into someone famous, or kindness from a stranger.

Jesus had many close encounters with ordinary people, turning around their lives in totally unexpected ways. Today many people still find their lives changed by him. Jesus really understands us. And he can defeat the things that threaten our happiness and our future.

In Close Encounters you'll find out about five ordinary people that Jesus helped. You'll learn some surprising things about yourself, about God and about life.

Using a modern, easy-to-understand translation of the Bible, this straightforward guide and the accompanying DVD will help you understand who Jesus is, why he came, and the difference he can make for people today.
