About the author:
Christopher Gorton earned his B.A. In science education, with honors, from the University of Central Florida in 1988. In 2005, after a number of years as a popular science teacher in the high-tech vicinity of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, he moved with his wife Joya, and the youngest four of seven children to an isolated Costa Rican community, to be salt and light. There, learning to read his Bible in Spanish ignited a desire to understand the New Testament in its original tongue. Now he seeks to serve his Lord, and share the truths he has discovered in His own journey. He may be contacted through his blog RadicalFish.net.

The Problem with Christ
 

Why we don't understand Jesus, His enemies, or the early Church

Authored by Christopher Gorton
Cover design or artwork by Joseph Ebersole
Edited by Arlin Weaver

The Problem with Christ discusses how English dictionaries, Greek scholars, and common usage all treat Christ as little more than a surname for Jesus. Discover how this error in scholarship and translation has, all too often, obscured the message of the New Testament

For those who love Jesus, this book will give you a fresh, stunning view of how early believers viewed Him, and the extent of meaning that is contained in believing that “Jesus is the Christ.” It will also give you a new glimpse of why Jesus came, why His enemies hated Him, and why His followers died for Him.

Easy to read and yet authoritative; scholarly and yet accessible, this book will leave you wondering how you could have been unaware of the problem with “Christ.” But you will be delighted and—perhaps—transformed by the insight its resolution brings.
