New Xulon Book Shows Jesus in a Realistic, Approachable Light Hart pairs Bible expertise with a passion for pets to help readers understand Christ

MAITLAND, Fla., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In his new book, If Jesus Had a Dog ($15.99, paperback, 9781628395518; $7.99, e-book, 9781628395525) Donald H. Hart takes a unique approach at making Jesus Christ as relatable as possible. He writes a fictional account of the birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection as seen through the eyes of his "best friend"—his dog! This book is especially innovative in that it brings together two types of unconditional love: the personal relationship people share with God in Christ and the deep emotional attachment owners have with their pets.


"This book will get you to look at Jesus the man, not the religious icon," states the author. "I believe most any young person that reads this account of Jesus will make a beeline to go to Church, on their own account, or open the Bible, also on their own account. Many adults will as well."

Donald H. Hart holds degrees in Journalism and History and has been a lifelong student of the Bible. The author adds, "Except for a brief time during graduate school, all sixty years of my life I've enjoyed the unconditional love of a dog."
