Our first guest is Author R. Christian Bolen discusses his  book, Jesus Christ, His Life and Mine: The Story of Jesus and How It Applies to Us in the Twitter Era.  Mr. Bolen offers a somewhat surprising and timeless solution. He doesn’t bash social media or advise not engaging with it; instead he proposes that people find their true value and worth by taking a fresh look at the life of Christ and to see how His life helps us rise above the negative effects of our times.

Bohlen reveals his connectedness to the modern mindset as he walks his readers through the life of Christ in a startlingly fresh, non-judgmental way that doesn’t assume any prior knowledge of the Bible while creating a movie-like experience.

The short chapters unfold the scenes of Christ’s life from birth-to-resurrection, while demystifying aspects of ancient Jewish life in simple language to make sense to the modern reader, especially for those not raised in the church. Most chapters include sidebar sections to clarify quoted scripture or its applications and each chapter concludes with “His Life and Mine” summary points of what Jesus did followed by questions for self-reflection: “What Would I Do?”

Along the way, he gently asks the reader to consider how Christ’s life might intersect with their own and offer hope and light. “Even in the Twitter era, Jesus shows the way up and out of the darkness so that we can become what we were meant to become,” Bohlen writes. “He restores peace, happiness, and a sense of our self-worth that’s divine and untouchable compared to worldly wisdom with its fickle infatuations.”

A recent Kirkus review praised Bohlen for his “eloquent and inviting prose” and summarized the review by calling the book, “A bracingly enthusiastic example of modern-day Christology.” Bohlen, who is a resident of the Pittsburgh area, is a professional communicator driven to simplify and clarify the beauties of the life of Christ so that they can be understood by anyone, regardless of background or knowledge of scripture.

R. Christian Bolen is an award-winning consultant to Fortune 500 companies, providing instructional design services and developing human performance improvement programs. He has been involved in ministry and church leadership for more than 30 years and worked for over a decade with juvenile offenders. He recently launched a new prison ministry in conjunction with the book called “Christ on the Inside,” which donates copies of his new book to those who are incarcerated.

Jesus Christ, His Life and Mine: The Story of Jesus and How it Applies to Us in the Twitter Era, [ISBN 978-1-949572-00-1] is available from Carpenter’s Son Publishing. It will be available from selected book stores and online retailers. For more information, visit https://rchristianbohlen.com/.
