“Sometimes on Christmas mornings there was a package that was bigger and heavier than the rest

and you just knew that there was something special

and substantive inside. That is what we find in this

work by my friend and coworker.”


—Neil Cole, Author of Organic Church and Church 3.0

In the early centuries Christianity was an explosive, viral movement that spread by word of mouth. Persecution could not stop it. In fact, it often helped to spread it.


Ross Rohde believes that this excitement and passion can be recaptured. In Viral Jesus he uses examples from the Bible and today to explore how we can return to our roots and once again enjoy the excitement, simple spirituality, and explosive growth of early Christianity.
